The striker’s wife has announced that he is nearing the San Siro exit as the club look to raise funds from the sale of the highly-coveted 23-year-old
Mauro Icardi’s wife and agent Wanda Nara has revealed Inter have put the Argentine forward up for sale.
Icardi was appointed as Inter’s captain at the start of the 2015-16 season, but he has courted interest from several clubs after scoring 16 goals in 33 league games for his side.
It was reported in AS that Atletico Madrid had agreed a deal for the 23-year-old, and Nara has revealed that the Nerazzurri are set to cash in on the interest, though she hopes they will ask for a fair price.

“From what I can see, Inter have put Icardi up for sale,” Nara told calciomercato.com. “There are many clubs interested. We will evaluate the situation with all due respect for everyone.
“Mauro would be very sad to leave Inter, but we’ve understood the club’s economic situation and evidently they cannot hold Icardi back.
“There is no release clause in his contract and we hope Inter won’t ask for a sum that is outside the market value, but rather suited to his contract.”
Icardi, who previously stated that he would “absolutely” be staying at San Siro, is said to have attracted interest from Arsenal, Atletico and Tottenham among others.
