Inter coy on Barca's Handanovic interest

Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti has quashed rumours of goalkeeper Samir Handanovic joining Barcelona, urging the Slovenian to remain in Italy.

Samir Handanovic has replaced Julio Cesar as Inter Milan's No. 1
Handanovic has been linked with a big money move to Barca

Handanovic, 28, has been linked with a move to the Spanish champions as Victor Valdes prepares to leave the club and rumours in the Italian press on Thursday suggested Barca could make a £25.5million bid for the Inter No. 1.

But Moratti has denied the speculation, claiming he believes Handanovic would benefit from a stay at Inter.

"I think there is nothing. I read it in the paper too, but I read a lot of things that are not true, I can't deny all of them," Moratti told "Should Handanovic remain? Yes."

Midfielder Dejan Stankovic has also been linked with a move away from Inter after playing just three games last season. 

But the 34-year-old has said he will stay with the Serie A side if he is part of new manager Walter Mazzarri's future plans.

"There is absolutely no truth in that (speculation I am leaving)," he told Sportal. "As things stand I will start the season with Inter and then we'll see what new boss Walter Mazzarri wants to do.

"A move back to Lazio or a transfer to the MLS? There is nothing. If an offer arrives then I'll think about it, if not then I'll stay another year with Inter."
