‘Atleti have made Icardi offer’

Wanda Nara, the wife and agent of Mauro Icardi, has confirmed that an offer from Atletico Madrid is on the table for the Inter striker.

Atleti have reportedly prioritised the signing of a new No 9 this summer and the Argentine connection between Icardi and Diego Simeone has fuelled links between the pair, but Nara believes the former Barcelona youngster would prefer to stay where he is.

“Atletico have made ​​an offer for Icardi, but his departure is difficult,” he told Infama via La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“He wants to stay at Inter. He’s the captain, he’s very happy and we renewed his contract last year.

“There are many offers [for Icardi] and I’ve spoken to all the directors [of these clubs].

“There’s no doubt Mauro and Cholo [Simeone] have spoken and crossed paths a few times, the last time on an aeroplane, but they didn’t about football.”

“He’ll almost certainly will not leave Inter, where he’s very happy.”
