Antonio Cassano feels Inter Milan would fair better if they sell Mauro Icardi and buy Gonzalo Higuain from Milan as a replacement.

The now-retired striker has been a huge critic of Icardi and did not hide his sentiments after contract talks hit the rocks.

“If I had a magic wand, I’d take Higuain away from Milan and put him in the Inter squad to replace Icardi,” FantAntonio told Football Italia.

“Pipita is a great champion. I’d tell Icardi if he wants to leave, then goodbye and have a nice journey.”

Spalletti explains what’s happening with Icardi

The Inter Milan manager believes his decision to drop Mauro Icardi is difficult but it's the right one to take.

While Higuain is pushing for a move to Chelsea, Icardi has been linked with Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester United, and Juventus.

Gattuso confirmed the Argentine striker has confirmed his interest on a loan and would not force him to change his mind.
