Much ado about Mauro

Mauro Icardi has had his fair share of controversy and made some bad decisions, but Richard Hall sees beyond that to a potential Inter legend.

Mauro Icardi offers up the perception that he is the stereotypical modern-day footballer due to a plethora of items, images and angles he allows others to see, but it couldn’t be further from the truth. He has not been without controversy, but his response to Real Madrid’s recent interest is another glimpse into his personality. The words that if Real called he would “not answer the phone” will no doubt please many in Milan, and even though his wife and agent will not rule it out, it seems he is happy at the club, but more importantly in the city.

Messi: 'Higuain one of the best'

Lionel Messi insists Gonzalo Higuain “is one of the best centre-forwards in the world and he needs to be in the Argentina squad.”

The Juventus striker has been dropped for the last few games in favour of Inter hitman Mauro Icardi.

“As far as I am concerned, Higuain is one of the best centre-forwards in the world. He proves that with Juventus and it’s just not the same thing playing for Argentina,” Barcelona hero Messi told TyC Sports in Argentina.

Wanda: 'Maradona needs doping test'

Mauro Icardi’s wife, Wanda Nara, hit back at Diego Maradona for claiming she harassed Argentina into calling him up. “He needs an anti-doping test.”

Napoli legend Maradona was in Russia for the 2018 World Cup draw yesterday when commenting to reporters that Argentina have “never played so badly” as they are right now.

He also suggested that Coach Jorge Sampaoli only called up Inter hitman Icardi because wife – and agent – Wanda was pestering him with phone calls.

Report: Inter want Boca starlet

Inter are reportedly keeping tabs on Boca Juniors and Argentina starlet Cristian Pavon.

According to Calciomercato.com, Inter began scouting Pavon a matter of days ago, with the 21-year-old an attacking player who can play out wide or through the middle.

He represented his country at the 2016 Olympic Games and was also called up to the senior team for their friendlies against Russia and Nigeria last month.

However, the website warns Pavon has a €37m release clause and is also being courted by Manchester City Arsenal.

Everyone's a winner with Higuain

It could be argued both Napoli and Juventus ultimately benefited from Gonzalo Higuain's €90m transfer, writes Giancarlo Rinaldi.

It was the great tug-of-love transfer story of a couple of summers ago. The latest tale of a club talisman being lured away by a huge transfer fee, the promise of trophies and, of course, immense financial rewards. There were smug smiles in Turin and howls of ingratitude in Naples as Gonzalo Higuain duly made his move north. But, about 18 months on, who has the most cause for contentment now about the €90m deal?

Icardi could beat Higuain record

Mauro Icardi is on track to shatter Gonzalo Higuain’s all-time Serie A scoring record for a single season with 15 goals in 14 games, but that’s not all.

The 24-year-old Argentina international has been on fire this term and bagged another brace in last night’s 3-1 win away to Cagliari.

That was his sixth multiple scoring game of the season (five braces and a hat-trick), more than any other player in Europe’s top five leagues.

His conversion rate is an astounding 32%, having found the net 15 times from just 48 shots on goal.

Icardi: 'I try to be ready'

Mauro Icardi said he tries to “be ready when the ball comes my way” after bagging another brace in Inter’s 3-1 victory at Cagliari.

The Argentine now has 15 in 14 Serie A games, but above all these goals were against the run of play during a very difficult match at the Sardegna Arena.

“The attitude we had in the first half was a bit of a problem, then my goal calmed Cagliari down a bit… They had a really good game,” he told Mediaset Premium.

Argentina cancel Italy friendly?

Argentina have reportedly cancelled their friendly with Italy on March 23 following the Azzurri’s failure to qualify for the World Cup.

According to ItaSportPress, the Argentine Football Association (AFA) wrote to their Italian counterparts (FIGC) after the Nazionale’s playoff defeat to Sweden.

It would have requested the match to be cancelled due to a probable lack of interest from fans and the likelihood of facing a “broadly experimental” Italy side with a caretaker Coach.
