Nainggolan given Icardi treatment

Antonio Conte has named his first Inter XI as it emerges Radja Nainggolan has been given the Mauro Icardi treatment.

According to Sky Sport Italia, Nainggolan did not travel with the Inter squad for their first preseason friendly against Lugano on Sunday.

General manager Beppe Marotta recently announced the midfielder, along with Icardi, did not have a future with the Nerazzurri.

However, while the midfielder is on his way back to Milan, the broadcaster does not rule out him being called up for the International Champions Cup.

Meanwhile, Conte has handed a debut to new signing Stefano Sensi, who plays with Roberto Gagliardini and Marcelo Brozovic in midfield.

There are also starts for Antonio Candreva and Samuele Longo, both of whom were outcasts under Luciano Spalletti.

Inter XI to face Lugano: Handanovic; D’Ambrosio, De Vrij, Skriniar; Candreva, Gagliardini, Brozovic, Sensi, Perisic; Longo, Esposito
