Mauro Icardi’s wife – and agent – Wanda Nara declares “Inter put him up for sale and we hope they won’t ask for a sum outside the market value.”
The situation exploded this morning with As reporting Atletico Madrid had agreed terms with Nara, then her cryptic tweet.
Now she has spoken to Calciomercato.com and given a damning statement.
“From what I can see, Inter have put Icardi up for sale. There are many clubs interested. We will evaluate the situation with all due respect for everyone.
“Mauro would be very sad to leave Inter, but we’ve understood the club’s economic situation and evidently they cannot hold Icardi back.
“There is no release clause in his contract and we hope Inter won’t ask for a sum that is outside the market value, but rather suited to his contract.”
According to reports, the issue here is that Icardi wants a new and improved contract – just one year after signing an extension.
The offers on the table are in the region of €40m and he is therefore demanding either a sale or improved wages.
