Mauro Icardi is reportedly threatened to see out the remaining two years of his contract with Inter.
Although the club stress it was a joint decision, La Repubblica claims the striker did not respond well to being shut out of their preseason plans. Icardi was included in all the fitness drills, but when Conte moved to tactical training, Icardi was not involved.
“I’ll stay here for two years, take my salary and I won’t move,” he is quoted as saying by the newspaper.
This situation goes from bad to worse for Inter seemingly on a daily basis. A year ago, Icardi was Inter’s most valuable player, worth €100m in an overinflated transfer market.
Inter never sold him, and refused to give him a new contract and here we are a year later and Icardi’s market value has fallen by more than 50%.
According to Corriere dello Sport, Juventus have reportedly made it clear that they will not pay more than €40m for Icardi as they know they are the only one bidding for his services and that Inter are desperate to sell the striker
