Mauro Icardi will not be trading Milan for Monaco.
According to beIN sports network, Mauro Icardi will not be transferred to Monaco.
While there is no doubt, he has no future at Inter Milan, the question is where will he end up.
The problem is, the move has to suit not only the player’s footballing aspirations but those of his wife’s fashion and on-screen career to.
His wife Wanda Nara, who also happens to be his agent to, has had a lot to say in public about the players fall out with Inter and his potential move.
It is rumoured, that the couple feels a move to Turin would suit them both.
However, the Milan side thinks that selling a player of his cailbre to an already strong competitor such as Juventus would not make sense.
There has been serious interest from Napoli, but Naples is not where the couple wants to be. Now according to Wanda Nara neither is Monaco.
“He will not go to Monaco.”
The principality team saw the Italian as the ideal replacement for Radmel Falcao, who has been strongly linked with a move to Turkish side Galatasaray.
Monaco may move for free agent Daniel Sturridge after this rejection.
After being stripped of the Inter captaincy last season, and removed from the team, Icardi has since been assured by new manager Antonio Conte, he has no future in Milan and is not a part of his plans.
PSG was rumoured to be interested. But have yet to make a move, as they await the outcome of the Neymar transfer.
Whoever makes an attempt to sign him must understand this is a package deal.
They are not just convincing a football player that the club is right for him, they are also convincing his wife that the city is right for her.
