Icardi ‘sets deadline for Juve as he could consider moving to Napoli’

Mauro Icardi will wait for Juventus until August 10, claim Sportmediaset, but there are reports Inter will give Napoli a discount to €70m.

The striker was left out of the pre-season tour of Asia and told he is not part of Coach Antonio Conte’s plans, but is rejecting all negotiations other than Juve.

According to Sportmediaset, the Argentine is holding out until August 10 for Juventus to get a deal done, otherwise he’ll start opening the door to Napoli.

Inter have no intention of reinforcing direct rivals Juve, so Tuttomercatoweb suggest they’d be prepared to give Napoli a discount to €70m, compared to the €80m price-tag quoted to the Bianconeri.

These figures are significantly more than the €50m mentioned in the media over the last few weeks.

The open nature of the breakdown in relations between Icardi and Inter mean his price-tag has plummeted from €110m in January to around half that now.
