Icardi reportedly wants to stay in Italy, opening the door to Juventus & Napoli



Inter striker Mauro Icardi reportedly wants to stay in Italy, opening the door to Juventus and Napoli.

According to Corriere dello Sport, Icardi’s family have invested in northern Italian property and ‘don’t intend’ to leave the peninsula.

The newspaper explains the Argentine is now ‘weighing up solutions’ to stay in Serie A, which could let in Juve and Napoli as he remains out of the first-team picture at Inter.

The 26-year-old would be aware that the Bianconeri tried to sign him before they went for Cristiano Ronaldo, and Il Corriere talks up a potential swap deal with Paulo Dybala.

Napoli, on the other hand, wanted Icardi to replace Gonzalo Higuain in the summer of 2016 and Coach Carlo Ancelotti is described as a ‘great admirer’ by the publication.
