Inter talked to Atletico and Juventus about Icardi deal, claims Wanda Nara

The interest in the Argentine is huge, according to his wife and agent, but she admits that he does not want to leave the San Siro outfit until he has lifted a title

Inter and Atletico Madrid met last week to discuss the transfer of Mauro Icardi, according to the player’s wife and agent Wanda Nara.

Nara has been vocal about Icardi’s future in recent days, claiming Inter have put their captain up for sale amid reported interest from La Liga giants Atletico.

However, Inter said they have no plans to sell Icardi, who signed a new four-year deal in June last year.

But Nara insists the 23-year-old is a wanted man, with Italian champions Juventus and Napoli also interested.

“For Mauro, Inter comes first and the rest comes later. I work for what is best for my husband,” she told Qui Studio a Voi Stadio on Telelombardia.

“Mauro has a wonderful rapport with the club, with Roberto Mancini and the fans. He is a real captain.

“The truth is that Mauro turned down the opportunity to play in the Champions League with another club because he loves Inter so much. I spoke to Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid before the renewal last year, but he decided to continue with Mancini.

“Mauro really was in the market and we turned down many clubs. Last year, the wage Inter offered Mauro was laughable. He was practically gone, but gave up on a lot in order to stay. 

“Juventus and Napoli were also interested in Mauro. Inter met with Juventus, but they never spoke to me.

“I know that Inter met with Atletico Madrid last week to discuss Mauro.

“He won’t leave until he’s won something.”

Icardi scored 16 goals in 33 Serie A appearances as Inter finished fourth last season.
