Inter Striker Icardi Stuck In Transfer Triangle With Higuain & Dzeko

Inter Striker Icardi Stuck In Transfer Triangle With Higuain & Dzeko

Mauro Icardi is stuck in a confusing transfer triangle at present with Gonzalo Higuain and Edin Dzeko, as Gazzetta dello Sport explained this morning.

All three strikers are expected to leave their respective clubs this summer, but none of them have a clear path to their next destination.

Juventus want to ‘starve’ Inter by waiting as long as possible and making their move at the last minute, thus ensuring Icardi can be secured for a very cheap fee.

Beppe Marotta, meanwhile, has halted talks with Roma for Dzeko in an attempt to block any possibility of Juve sending Gonzalo Higuain to the capital.

Inter are focusing on Romelu Lukaku for the moment as they know Dzeko has entered the final year of his Roma contract, weakening the Giallorossi’s bargaining position.

Dzeko is not keen on the prospect of joining Inter on a free transfer next summer, though, like the Nerazzurri have threatened they might do.

The Bosnian also has interest from China and rumours have circled suggesting he would like to release himself from the ‘moral commitment’ made to Inter.

Gazzetta assured this was only ‘a small hiccup’ in a much bigger puzzle, though, where fresh traps and red herrings are cropping up every day.

The paper also raised a question mark about where Wanda Nara had disappeared to, having taken her mind off the transfer market in recent days.

“The only thing we know for sure is that the market closes on 2 September, but the turning point could arrive at any moment,” they concluded.
