Inter Milan have joined Everton and Barcelona in the race to sign Granada goalkeeper Rui Silva, with Passione Inter claiming that Beppe Marotta is looking to lure the Iberian ace to Serie A.
While the future of this Portuguese shot-stopper is shrouded in doubt, we know one thing for sure; he won’t be pulling off those gravity-defying stops at the Nuevo los Carmenes next season.
Speaking to OneFootball, Granada director Fran Sanchez confirmed last week that Silva has rejected a new contract and will leave on a free transfer over the summer.
In an era of reduced revenues and frantic cost-cutting, it is no wonder the 26-year-old former Nacional ace is a man in such high demand.
So, for two of Europe’s giants, Silva represents an intelligent, low-cost addition amid all the uncertainty brought on by the pandemic (Marca).
Passione Inter claims that Nerazzuri CEO Beppe Marotta is looking into a deal, with Silva identified as a potential replacement for the 36-year-old Samir Handanovic.
Everton are also in the race for Silva’s signature, according to Estadio Deportivo.
But, with Robin Olsen confirming his desire to turn a loan move from Roma into a permanent transfer, the Toffees may take the easy option and stick with what they have got.
