La Gazzetta dello Sport: United join battle for Icardi
- Inter No9 is highly likely to leave his club in the summer.
- His conflict with the management has seen Icardi deprived of captaincy and sidelined from games.
- Man United are one of the clubs considering the move, as well as Real Madrid and Juventus.
The Red Devils are set to make a move for Inter's Mauro Icardi, La Gazzetta dello Sport reports.
The Argentinian striker is currently in dispute with his club over negative comments made by his wife and agent Wanda Nara. The Italians have tried to persuade Icardi to distance himself from those comments, but instead the forward preferred to support his wife.
Since then he has not participated in a single game for the Nerazzurri. His last appearance in Inter's shirt was on 9 February when he was substituted in the injury time at Parma.
Officially, the reason for his absence is an injury. Behind the scenes, however, Icardi's representatives are having discussions with other clubs over the ex-Inter captain's transfer in the summer. Among those clubs are reportedly Real Madrid and Juventus.
Now, it looks like Man United have joined the race for Icardi. Thanks to the public conflict, the negotiations may be easier than they usually are, as Inter understand their star is determined to leave at the next opportunity.
Do you think Icardi will be a good addition to the squad?
