Mauro Icardi has officially left the Inter training camp by mutual consent and will continue fitness work by himself in Milan, announced the club.
“Mauro Icardi will return to Milan today from the Lugano pre-season training camp,” read a statement.
“The club and the Argentine striker made this decision by mutual consent. Icardi will continue his fitness conditioning work over the next few days and will not take part in the Summer Tour in Asia.”
Icardi has been excluded from any of the tactical training sessions under Antonio Conte and realizing he had no hope of changing the club’s mind, Icardi got on a train and left the Inter camp for a return to Milan.
Inter have slapped a €60m price-tag on the forward, which is half the €120m wanted for him a year ago, a sign of how much that the club have mismanaged the situation with their former captain.
While Napoli had seemed prepared to pay that sum, reports today again suggest Icardi only wants to join Juventus. That means that Juve will probably end up getting a two-time Capocannoniere winner for under €50m, a bargain in today’s overinflated market.
