According to the Corriere della Sera, Mauro and his team are leaning towards having a knee operation and this is another reason for friction. Last week, Inter gave him a medical exam and based on the results of it, the club didn’t think having a knee surgery was necessary. Last summer, Icardi flew to Barcelona twice for a consultation with Professor Ramon Cugat who told him that he didn’t consider having an operation was useful. The same Icardi said then that he did not want to go under the knife and so he resumed preparation. At the end of the season Inter will sell him but meanwhile, this week, Luciano Spalletti will talk to Icardi once more to calm the situation: this is the last and final attempt.
