Icardi's Instagram post, is it about the transfer market, teammates or his wife Wanda Nara?
Five words from a famous Argentinian song: “Saying goodbye is to grow,” signed Mauro Icardi. In the background of his post, there is a walking path that runs along a body of river, complete with a street lamp. All of it is in black and white. A melancholic framework that lends itself to endless interpretations. The only certain here is the sender. The blue check mark of the Instagram account leaves no doubt, it was the work from the Inter captain, who also comments “chau chau” with a hand emoji.
So the question is: who did Icardi dedicate the post to?
The transfer market - Sporting director Ausilio said last night that “it does not have anything to do with us.” But it will be. Given the delicate moment at Inter (last victory was on December 3rd) and the still open transfer market window, the word goodbye in this case sounds like an alarm. Inter refuted it categorically while from Argentina, rumors suggested that he was already traveling to Madrid, destination Real. In Spain, however, nothing was reported.
Ok, it is true that Real Madrid like Icardi and we even know that an intermediary is already at work setting up a possible negotiation: easier for it to take off in June however. It would be insanely incredible if everything is closed in the last two days of January. Also because that the release clause (only valid for foreign club) of 110 million euros is valid only from 1st to 15th of July. And although Inter have financial needs, selling its captain today would be self-harming in its purest form. How could you even possibly think about the Champions League then?
Teammates - The use of the Epic Brozo emoji suggests another interpretation: does Icardi know something about Marcelo Brozovic? The Croatian midfielder is on the transfer market and it is not news that players use social network to say goodbye to a teammate that is leaving. Usually, however, they do so when the negotiation is in a very advanced state. It would be very surreal that the news of Brozovic’s farewell comes from an Instagram post on Icardi’s account.
Wanda - Someone even said that “Icardi is leaving Wanda Nara.” They even went further that Wanda is no longer called wanda_icardi on Instagram but after a quick check, it was false. The couple just returned from a mini vacation with many sexy photos which suggest that they are not in crisis.
So the mystery remains. Maybe it is really just the lyrics of a song.
