Pagliuca: Handanovic should cost 70 million euros

Former Inter goalkeeper Gianluca Pagliuca says the club's current No. 1 Samir Handanovic is worth 70 million to 80 million euros.

The 29-year-old has kept 14 clean sheets in 33 Serie A appearances this season and subsequently been linked with a move to Premier League side Manchester City. However, Pagliuca says it should take a world-record bid for a goalkeeper for the Nerazzurri to even consider parting with the Slovenia international.

"He is a player that makes the difference, of course,” Pagliuca told TuttoSport. “If a team were to offer 70 or 80 million euros then maybe they could take him, otherwise they will have to look elsewhere and find someone else. Handanovic’s year didn’t start so well but he recovered and is having a super season finale.

“Yes, he has made a couple of mistakes against Atalanta and Parma for example, but, no discussion is needed, his performances have been good. Handanovic did well last year, but also had the ghost of Julio Cesar to get rid of. After [Gianluigi] Buffon, he is the best goalkeeper in the Serie A.”
