Did Juventus meet Icardi?

Juventus director Fabio Paratici flew out to Ibiza for a meeting with Inter striker Mauro Icardi and his wife/agent Wanda Nara, claim Sport Mediaset, but other sources are doubtful.

It has been suggested many times that Icardi will reject any transfer other than a move to Juve, as his rapport with the Nerazzurri hierarchy has broken down irreparably.

New Coach Antonio Conte has made it clear he doesn’t see the Argentine as part of the project and is trying to bring in Roma’s Edin Dzeko with Romelo Lukaku from Manchester United.

According to Sport Mediaset and La Gazzetta dello Sport, Icardi and his wife Wanda Nara were in Ibiza on Tuesday when Juve director of sport Paratici also flew in with a private jet.

Wanda then flew out towards Milan, as confirmed by her Instagram post, for a brief work-related visit lasting six hours.

Paratici was in Milan during the same period, which Mediaset considers more than a coincidence, but Sky Sport Italia insist they’ve had no confirmation of these meetings.

The most likely option would be for Icardi to swap places with Paulo Dybala, who does not necessarily fit into Maurizio Sarri’s approach.
