Wanda Nara: "Icardi is worth at least 200 million. He bleeds black and blue but no one can tell the future"
In an exclusive interview with Corriere dello Sport, wife and agent of Mauro Icardi, Wanda Nara, discusses the topic of his husband on and off the field. Here are the most interesting responses:
Wanda, did you expect Icardi to have this great start, scoring 15 goals in 14 games?
“Yes, because I always believe in him and I know what he can do. With this coach and with this group, he is doing very well. He always gives us something extraordinary.”
What does it mean to be the agent of Icardi?
“I like it because, as he has said, everything remains at home. Mauro makes it easy for me when we talk about things at home.”
Talk about the rumors of Real Madrid, Chelsea and Bayern Munich. Any confirmation?
“Mauro is an important player and these top clubs have been following him for some time. It is normal that a forward like him, one of the best number 9 in the world, has big clubs who are interested and considering him for what he is worth. That is something that both Inter and Icardi really like.”
Have you received any call from Madrid lately?
“I prefer not to reveal who is calling me. Mauro only thinks of Inter and he is happy here. Management know that he rejected teams in the past, teams that other players would not reject. He did that because of the black and blue colors in his heart. I do not deny that there is interest in him. More than the rumors that are going around…”
About the captain armband…
“It is an honor. But for Inter, he also plays with his heart even when he did not have the armband because he already felt the love for this shirt since he was very young. Inter will always have him as an extra fan.”
Do you see him elsewhere in the future?
“It is difficult to say because in football, we never know what can happen. He has a contract and wants to win with Inter. He is happy with what is going on and how he is doing. He always aims for the best but no one knows about the future. The last word belongs to the club and there are offers that can often not be refused.”
Negotiations have begun for new contract?
“This is something that the club will have to initiate. They have the directors to sell us if the contract is in place for a talk and what they want to do. He is a player of Inter, its captain. We are not asking for anything. If the club wants to change anything in the contract, it is their choice.”
How much is Icardi worth?
“At least 200 million.”
If Inter propose that they want to remove the clause and renew the contract, what would you say?
“I asked for the clause because I thought it was right to attach to him a clause worthy of being a top player. I do not know if the club wants to adjust the clause and consequently the contract. The clause should not worry anyone because if there is a club to match it, the final decision is always up to the player.”
