After the exam given today, Mauro Icardi – as reported by Sport Mediaset – should soon return to training with the rest of his teammates. The hope of Luciano Spalletti is to reintegrate him as soon as possible but a lot will depend on the relationship with his teammates.
However, given that Inter are not willing to change its offer to renew Icardi’s contract, which is €7M annually, a positive response from Icardi and his team is not obvious (their demand is €9M). As a result, the Argentinian’s future is very uncertain with clubs like Real Madrid, Chelsea, Juventus and Napoli following the situation very carefully.
According to the same source, Inter have made an inquiry for Duvan Zapata of Atalanta: the Colombian is valued between €40M-€45M. Not only that, after the signing of Diego Godin, the Nerazzurri are in an advanced negotiation for Cagliari midfielder Nicolo Barella. For Rakitic, the first offer of €30M from Inter was rejected by Barcelona.
