'Icardi meeting load of nonsense!'

Aurelio De Laurentiis claims talk of a meeting with Wanda Nara is ‘a load of nonsense’ and hits out at Real Madrid over ‘unfair James Rodriguez demands’.

James has long agreed terms with Napoli, but Madrid are continuing to hold out for a €42m permanent sale, whereas the Partenopei prefer a loan with an option or obligation to buy. 

“James’ problem is that we have to negotiate with Real Madrid,” De Laurentiis told Radio Kiss Kiss.

“We don’t want to give in to their unfair demands. Time will tell.”

The President then rubbished speculation of a possible meeting with Wanda over a deal for Icardi, who is not part of Inter’s plans this season.

“It's a load of nonsense. I met her three years ago and I’m not going to meet her again, also because Napoli don’t need Icardi.”
