Transfers: Icardi to Juventus Could Cost PSG 98m

Mauro Icardi

Inter Milan are desperate to sell former captain Mauro Icardi, but they don’t want to sell him to domestic rival.

Which is why when Inter sent Icardi on loan to PSG last summer, they included a clause that if PSG purchased Icardi and then immediately sold him to another Serie A club, that Inter would receive an additional €15m.

To take Icardi on loan, PSG paid a €13m loan fee and covered his wages. Icardi for his part settled in well in Lique 1, scoring 20 goals and adding four assists in 31 competitive games.

One of the stories of this summer’s transfer window is the future of Inter Milan’s talented young striker Lautaro Martinez.

Martinez has a €111m release clause in his contract that can only be activated during the first two weeks of July. Lots of clubs have been linked with the Argentina international, none more so that Barcelona.

Barcelona have been tapping up Martinez in the press since November with Luis Suarez even getting involved.

Not everyone thinks this is the time for the 22-year-old to leave Inter. Martinez’s Argentine compatriot Hernam Crespo, who played more than 50 times for Inter, believes the best thing for his career would be to stay put.

It looks like Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud is going to get his wish and finally complete a move to Inter Milan in the summer as a free agent.

Giroud tried to push through a move to Inter in January after a frustrating first half of the season with Frank Lampard’s side, but Chelsea blocked the move due to a lack of alternative options up front at Stamford Bridge.

Giroud is desperate to play regular first team football next season as he wants to be part of the French side at the Euro’s next summer.

Zanetti Admits Icardi Will Be Sold Or Loaned Out Again

Mauro Icardi

Inter Milan vice-president Javier Zanetti has admitted that he doesn’t think Mauro Icardi has a future at the club.

The 27-year-old was shipped out on loan to Paris Saint-Germain last summer following a huge falling out with the club.

That hasn’t deterred Icardi, though, who has hit the ground running at the Parc des Princes where he has scored 17 goals in 26 Ligue 1 appearances for the French champions.

Recent reports have suggested that PSG will likely now make that deal permanent should Icardi agree to leave Italy.

The Italian National Institute of Health (ISS) says it ‘wouldn’t be in favour’ of the season resuming.

The FIGC, Serie A and sports minister Vincenzo Spadafora are all in agreement over completing the 2019-20 campaign as soon as it is safe enough to do so.

It had been suggested that training could start again once the first phase of lockdown ends on May 3, with a view to possibly ending the season by August.

However, the ISS, the leading technical-scientific body of the Italian health service, believes 2019-20 should be written off.
