Wanda: ‘Juventus, Napoli wanted Icardi’

Both Juventus and Napoli wanted to sign Inter captain Mauro Icardi this summer, according to his wife and agent, Wanda.

The striker had a €110m release clause in his contract for foreign clubs in the first two weeks of July, but stayed with the Nerazzurri.

However, it appears that there was also interest in him from Italy.

“The only contact Mauro has had with Juventus is the seven goals he’s scored against them,” Wanda Icardi told Tiki Taka.

“It’s obvious that there’ll be offers for a striker like Mauro, but his choice was clear from the start.

“Juventus looked at him, but CR7 [Cristiano Ronaldo] was their primary objective for the Champions League.

“I do my job, if other clubs call me then I answer, but the final decision is always Mauro’s.

“Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis? I met him, he’s a very good person. We talked about a bit of everything, from cinema to football.

“I think he made an offer to Inter, but Mauro made another decision.”
