What is going on with Icardi’s extension? According to the Corriere dello Sport, “as the Argentinian continues to score, negotiation for his contract has stalled. In September, there was a first meting between sporting director Ausilio and Wanda Nara, but the parties immediately discovered that the gap between what they wanted was far away. The proposal of Inter (less than €6M plus rich bonuses) did not please the wife-agent of Icardi.
“Talk is delayed until 2019 because with Icardi scoring at this rate, sitting down to talk now would prove… costly. He has a contract until 2021 and has never hidden the intention to renew it. But as time passes and next summer, big European clubs could come knocking on the door, willing to pay the €110M release clause.”
