According to the Italian print media, Tuttosport, and subsequent publishing of the story by semipreInter, Samir, is set to be with Inter for one year or more before calling time in his playing career and undergoing all the necessary training needed to become a coach.

This comes at times when Inter Milan just signed another goalkeeper. On 01 July 2022, Inter signed the 26-year-old Cameroonian goalkeeper from Ajax, Andre Onana, who is likely to compete for playtime with Samir.

Samir Handanovic’s contract

Samir joined Inter Milan in 2012 from Udinese on a five-year contract that was to run through all the way to 2017. However, with his contract coming to a close at the time, the Slovenian drew interest from major European clubs such as Liverpool. But eventually, in the end, he renewed his contract with Inter Milan for three and half years to 2021.

In June 2021, he signed another one-season extension contract. However, with his twilight years coming to a close, Inter went on a hunt seeking an eventual long-term goalkeeper for when he exited the club.

This led to the signing of Andre Onana. In the midst of all this happening, Inter Milan announced they will be extending Samir’s contract for one more year to June 2023 and stated that even with the signing of Onana, Samir is their default starter.

In the 2021/22 UEFA Champions League, he played eight matches, averaging about 29 passes per match with a pass completion rate of 87% and made no assists. He has received no yellow and red cards during the entire season.

What is Samir Handanovic’s net worth?

In 2014, the last time his net worth was made public, he was estimated to be worth $1.6 million. However, the figure is most likely to have gone up because, at the time, he had only been with Inter Milan, his highest-earning club, for one season. In addition, the Slovenian star has earned a career gross of $50 million in the 19 years he has played football professionally.

While most of his income comes from his salary, he has endorsement deals with brands such as Reusch. The sports brand specialises in winter sportswear and sports gloves for goalkeepers.

Samir Handanovic’s salary

Samir is one of the top earners at Inter Milan. His current contract is running up to the end of the season. His approximated gross annual pay is $6.2 million, which is about $478,000 monthly.

However, owing to Coronavirus, most clubs took a hit financially, and Inter Milan wasn’t spared either despite being a major European club. With financial constraints, the club was forced to make tough decisions like players taking a pay cut. Samir was not spared on this, for one of the pre-conditions presented to him by Inter’s management to guarantee his stay with the club for one more season is that he has to take a pay cut.

Where does he live?

The question of Samir Handanovic’s house is somewhat of a mystery to the public, for the star tends to maintain a private life away from the pitch. However, though it is known that he is living in the northern part of Italy in the city of Milan, he also maintains a close connection with his hometown in Ljubljana, Slovenia, which is 495 kilometres away. Just like his house, not much is known about the type of car the Slovenian star drives, for he is not an ostentatious person.

Samir Handanovic’s dating life

Samir is married to Zoja Trobec and has two boys with her. Handanovic met his wife sometime in 2009, got engaged a year later, and married in 2012. Their first son Alen was born a year before getting married, and their second son Ian was born in 2013.

Zoja studied at the International Tourist Institue in Ljubljana and is an avid book reader, a hobby that she commonly shares with her husband. She and her sister are co-founders of Dragon Ladies, a cheerleading group of ladies supporting KK Olimpija since 1997, Slovenia’s dominating men’s basketball team.

She is also very private and tends to avoid public appearances. The fact that her Instagram is private and has only 367 followers goes to great lengths to demonstrate her confidentiality.

Samir Handanovic's Instagram

As pointed out earlier, Samir is quite a private person outside the pitch. He has only one social media account. He doesn’t have any Twitter account but instead has an Instagram account with a following of 599k as of 8 July 2022.

That concludes our article on Samir Handanovic’s net worth. Even though he was reported to be worth $1.6 million in 2014, the amount is most likely to have increased, given that the Slovenian football legend has also made a total of $50 million in his 19 years of professional play.
