Mauro Icardi has reportedly turned down a move to Spain as reports claim the forward is interested in the idea of a move to Juventus.

Inter owned striker Mauro Icardi will reject a move to Real Madrid in order to push for a move to the Nerazzuri’s rival, Juventus.

The striker’s future has been in doubt for a while and it remains to be seen where exactly he’ll be by the start of next season.

As per Eglodigital h/t by Calciomercato, the 27-year-old will likely return to Italy at the end of the season, once his loan deal with PSG is over.

Icardi is currently on loan at the French club, with a €70 million option to buy but the report says PSG are not convinced enough and would not move to trigger that option.

The same report goes on to say that Real Madrid made an offer for the Argentine but he is more interested in a move back to Italy, with Juventus.

The Bianconeri are also believed to be in the search for a striker and it means a move for Icardi might make sense.

The forward already has experience and credibility playing in the Serie A with Inter and would have no problems adjusting to life at Juve.

The 27-year-old has made 31 appearances across all competitions so far this season scoring 20 goals and providing four assists.
