Juve set Icardi limit?

Juventus have reportedly made it clear that they will not exceed €40m for Inter striker Mauro Icardi.

According to Corriere dello Sport, that is at least €20m less than Inter’s asking price, even if the Nerazzurri are prepared for that figure to be reached with bonuses.

The newspaper explains ‘indirect talks’ between the two clubs have already taken place and there could be more in the coming days.

Lukaku perfect for Inter

With Inter continuing their pursuit of Romelu Lukaku, Vilizar Yakimov sees the Belgian as the perfect fit for both Antonio Conte and Lautaro Martinez.

The start of Inter’s summer mercato has been nothing short of remarkable. The Nerazzurri made a serious statement with Antonio Conte’s appointment shortly after the 2018-19 season ended and they haven’t taken a step back since then.

Snapping up a defensive lynchpin like Diego Godin on a free transfer surely looks like a bargain, while the arrival of two of Italy’s brightest midfield talents in Stefano Sensi and Nicolò Barella also speak clearly about the conviction of the Nerazzurri project.

Handanovic: 'Players have duties'

Inter captain Samir Handanovic admires Antonio Conte’s tough work ethic and warns “players can’t just think they are allowed to do anything. They have duties towards the club.”

The Nerazzurri have clamped down on discipline and hard training sessions under new Coach Conte, with Mauro Icardi and Radja Nainggolan told they are not part of his plans.

“We are happy that Lele Oriali has returned as team manager, because he is the link between the club and squad, he sees everything,” said Handanovic in a Press conference.

Inter 'babysit' Icardi and Nainggolan

Inter are well aware that they risk legal action from Mauro Icardi and Radja Nainggolan, so have hired a personal trainer while they are separated from the squad.

The two players have been told in no uncertain terms that they are on the transfer market and not part of Coach Antonio Conte’s plans.

It is against the rules to prevent a player from training and continuing his profession if he is still under contract, so Inter consulted lawyers and have found a new solution, according to Tuttosport.

'Icardi meeting load of nonsense!'

Aurelio De Laurentiis claims talk of a meeting with Wanda Nara is ‘a load of nonsense’ and hits out at Real Madrid over ‘unfair James Rodriguez demands’.

James has long agreed terms with Napoli, but Madrid are continuing to hold out for a €42m permanent sale, whereas the Partenopei prefer a loan with an option or obligation to buy. 

“James’ problem is that we have to negotiate with Real Madrid,” De Laurentiis told Radio Kiss Kiss.
