Icardi Will Only Reconsider Roma Move If Juventus Withdraw Interest For Inter Striker

Icardi Will Only Reconsider Roma Move If Juventus Withdraw Interest For Inter Striker

Mauro Icardi will only agree to join Roma if Juventus withdraw their interest for Inter’s former captain, according to La Repubblica.

Inter are locked in talks with the Giallorossi over a deal for Edin Dzeko but it is possible the clubs agree a part-exchange deal involving Maurito.

Roma will not offer more than €35-40 million in cash to go alongside Dzeko while Inter want at least €50 million to compensate for Icardi’s valuation.

In any case, the clubs’ negotiations will prove pointless unless Icardi changes his mind on a move to the capital.

Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici has promised Wanda Nara they are prepared to make a big financial sacrifice for Icardi’s salary.

The Bianconeri cannot hope to reach any kind of deal for the 26-year-old until they have sold Gonzalo Higuain, though, who remains another target in attack for Roma.

Icardi is reportedly prepared to give Juve an ultimatum as Roma step up their interest for the former Sampdoria striker.

Inter would almost certainly prefer a deal with the Giallorossi, as it may help them secure Dzeko after weeks of tough negotiations.
