Serie B: Crotone sign Maxi Lopez

Former Milan, Sampdoria and Torino striker Maxi Lopez has returned to Italy with Serie B side Crotone.

Lopez has signed a one-year contract with Crotone and joins on a free transfer after he left Brazilian outfit Vasco da Gama in May.

The 35-year-old has scored 62 goals in Italian football for Milan, Samp and Toro, as well as Catania, Chievo and Udinese.

However, his later career has been overshadowed by an off-field feud with Mauro Icardi after the Inter hitman went on to have a relationship with his former wife Wanda Nara.

Maxi Lopez and Denis back to Italy?

Maxi Lopez and German Denis are reportedly returning to Italy for Crotone and Reggina respectively.

The two Argentine strikers are familiar faces to Serie A viewers, with spells at Catania, Napoli, Sampdoria, Milan and Atalanta.

According to Sky Sport Italia, Sportitalia and more, Maxi Lopez has agreed a move to Serie B outfit Crotone as a free agent.

The 35-year-old centre-forward is perhaps even more famous for being the former husband of Mauro Icardi’s wife/agent Wanda Nara.

Lopez: Icardi infuriates me!

Maxi Lopez explained why Mauro Icardi and Wanda Nara ‘infuriate’ him. “They don’t let me see my kids, he’s hung up the phone while I was talking to them...”

Wanda was married to Lopez with three children but divorced amidst allegations that she was having an affair with Icardi, who was a then-teammate of his fellow Argentine at Sampdoria.

“There’s an agreement signed by a judge, which has never been respected,” the Vasco da Gama striker told Podemos Hablar.

Wanda Nara: 'If Icardi asked...'

Wanda Nara said Mauro Icardi showed “courage” to choose her as his agent and she’d step aside if he asked, but insists her various other roles are “compatible.”

The Argentine TV personality was the cover star of French paper L’Equipe and their weekend magazine, titled ‘Atomic Blonde.’

“If one day Mauro were to ask me to stop being his agent, I’d do that,” assured the Inter forward’s wife.

Maxi Lopez: Icardi deserves better

Maxi Lopez admits Mauro Icardi deserves a better agent than Wanda Nara but claims the Inter striker has a ‘worse attitude’ than his ex-wife.

Wanda was married to Lopez with three children but divorced amidst allegations that she was having an affair with Icardi, who was a then-teammate of his fellow Argentine at Sampdoria.

“I hope Argentina always win,” the 34-year-old told Radio La 990.

“If he plays I’ll still support the national team. I don’t care who their striker is, but Wanda is too chatty for Italy.

Maxi Lopez: Lautaro over Icardi…

Maxi Lopez named Lautaro Martinez and ignored Mauro Icardi when he was asked about Argentina’s starting striker at the World Cup.

Lopez and Icardi were involved in a highly-publicised love triangle with Wanda Nara, who left the Udinese striker for the Inter captain, and the 33-year-old appeared to take a swipe at his fellow Argentine.

“I kept away from gossip more than the other parties involved,” he told La Stampa.

“My release has always been football, and this story also made me grow.

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.
