Wanda: 'Icardi will renew with Inter'

Wanda Nara, the wife and agent of Inter striker Mauro Icardi, assured “there will be a new contract. There’s no problem.”

She had sparked the controversy by declaring earlier this month that there was “a big distance” between the club’s offer and the captain’s demands.

Wanda then insisted she had been contacted by Europe’s top clubs, including Real Madrid, to ask after his availability.

This evening, she spoke to Striscia La Notizia on Canale 5 and changed her tune completely.

The Icardi Show

As yet more contract negotiations drag on between Mauro Icardi and Inter, Richard Hall gets out the popcorn and enjoys the three-ring San Siro circus.

“Don’t fight it, it’s coming for you” may be a line from ‘The Greatest Showman’, but it should also be one of Mauro Icardi’s many tattoos. It references the many defenders who will have seen the lethal Argentine dispatch them after half a chance, but it is also perhaps relevant to his behaviour off the pitch. As his contract negotiations wrangle on in full public view, Inter should also realise that this is his show and this is how he operates. It is not as if this hasn’t happened before.
