Icardi to switch places with Benzema || Reports
As things look unsettling for Mauro Icardi at Inter, the club is looking for the rightful replacement for the Argentine. With reports suggesting via Don Balon, Inter have identified Real Madrid’s Karim Benzema to be making swap move on Icardi’s departure to Santiago Bernabeu in summer.
The Italian club has been involved in tug of war with player’s agent cum wife Wanda Nara since quite a time over the renewal of Icardi’s contract, and as things stand the 26-year-old forward is likely to part ways from Inter.
Previously, Inter manager has come out strongly over player and his contract situation. Luciano Spalletti was quoted saying:
“For how he behaved, the others must play. I was able to play for a while, but in a dressing room you have to have credibility. How many years had Inter been without qualifying for the Champions League? Six. And Icardi was? And how many games we lost him in the field ?
What should I do, send an email to everyone notifying if they are summoned or not? Negotiating for a player to put on the shirt again is something humiliating for the players, value that.”
What happens here onward could either benefit player or the club, but so far the situation looks ugly for both the parties.
