Mauro Icardi’s move to Juventus in a swap deal with Paulo Dybala would be the perfect solution for both Inter and the player, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.
Icardi wants to meet Antonio Conte at the start of preseason training to discuss the new head coach’s plans but Inter want to sell him long before that.
The Nerazzurri want to hand the striker over to their arch rivals before 30 June so they can record a sizable capital gain.
“Marotta’s words to Wanda Nara” – if and when they meet – “will be enough to clear up Inter’s position on Icardi,” Gazzetta said.
“Wanda is ready for a standoff with Inter and wants them to go on the record telling people it’s them who want to sell Icardi. Otherwise they’ll stay in Milan and what will be will be.”
Atletico Madrid are interested in Icardi as well but the forward’s desire to stay in Italy whatever happens makes a move to the Colchoneros highly unlikely.
Juventus therefore remain the most likely option, as the Bianconeri study a potential bargain by signing the 26-year-old for a reduced fee.
Dybala remains hesitant to accept a move to Inter as part of the swap deal.
