Manchester United have joined AC Milan in the chase to sign Udinese’s Slovenian international goalkeeper Samir Handanovic in the summer, according to talkSport.
The news that Udinese are willing to sell Handanovic will surly alert clubs throughout Europe, with the Rossoneri already said to be interest in his services.
Manchester United have kept tabs on Handanovic over recent seasons, but opted to buy David De Gea from Atletico Madrid last summer. De Gea has looked far from comfortable since his Old Trafford move and has committed many costly errors already this season. His transition to English football has been far from smooth; the Spaniard has continually failed to deal with crosses into his area and seems to have suffered from a lack of confidence.
De Gea has been dropped in favour of Anders Lindegaard on a few occasions this season and only recently returned to the United starting line-up because Lindegaard suffered ligament damage to his ankle in a training ground accident. It remains to be seen if De Gea is the long term answer between the sticks at United, much will depend on the form of the Spanish youngster.
Handanovic, 27, has been at Udinese since his arrival from his homeland in the summer of 2004. Since then he has gone on to make over a 100 appearance for them and has been capped at international level on 53 occasions.
Udinese are willing to conclude a deal if they receive a decent offer for the goalkeeper, said to be valued at around £12million.
