According to Tuttosport writes that Simeone has already been in touch with Icardi’s wife and agent Wanda Nara regarding a move for the 27-year-old. Wanda has been adamant that Icardi return to Italy, but with those optiosn limited, and Icardi in the prime if his career, would she move the family to Spain?
Simeone has been looking for a replacement for Diego Costa in Madrid and the newspaper claims the Atleti tactician has targeted the former Nerazzurri captain.
Atletico were close to signing Icardi’s current teammate Edinson Cavani this winter and the Uruguay international could still be an alternative in the summer if they fail to land Icardi.
