Juventus are confident they can sign Inter outcast Mauro Icardi for less than €50 million this summer, Tuttosport revealed today.
Icardi has only two years left on his deal in Milan and was officially placed on the market by Inter’s chief executive Beppe Marotta last weekend.
A deal for €50 million would nonetheless guarantee the Nerazzurri a capital gain worth €47.5 million, considering Icardi is only currently worth €2.5 million on their books.
The paper suggested Inter could settle for ‘a lot less’, though, before floating the bizarre idea that they could even let the striker depart on loan.
Juventus are aware that no other Italian club has made a move for Icardi, as well as the fact they are only the destination he would consider.
Icardi is completing preseason training with Antonio Conte this week, but he is being excluded from all Inter’s tactical drills and will not play against Lugano on Sunday.
