Wanda Nara: "Top big clubs interested in Icardi. Raiola? No, I am Mauro's representative"
Mauro Icardi and Inter, how things are going? To clarify the present and future is his wife and agent Wanda Nara in an interview with the Corriere dello Sport.
“I have not met with Ausilio but we often speak on the phone. He knows what I have in mind and I know what he and the club are thinking. Recently, there were a couple of big clubs making an approach, showing their interest and appreciation for Mauro. I take care his future, I must at least listen to them, evaluate the conditions and situation.”
Should the fans of Inter start to get worried?
“Mauro had many chances in the past to leave but decided to stay at Inter. Others in his shoe would definitely think about leaving and would never give up these opportunities but he did and has never had any doubt. As I have always said, however, you never know what the future has in store for you. I continue to work and my job is to find the best condition for Mauro just as Ausilio is working for the good of Inter. In the end, the club will decide and Mauro will see what the best option is.”
Did Raiola bring to you an offer from that big club that wants to sign Icardi?
“For over three years, I have been working with the contracts of Mauro and we have already signed renewal with Inter twice. He is happy with how I work and has never thought about changing representative. I do not know why there are rumors like this. It has been like this for over three years and it will be so in the future. There have been teams in the past who wanted him and they have always dealt with me. They know how they need to talk to. Icardi thinks about performing well on the field. I take care the rest.”
The club wants to raise the clause. What do you think?
“I do not think the clause is a problem. But it is a positive thing showing that everything is clear and everyone knows the situation is like. We will discuss it and see. I am pleased that the release clause has become the norm in Italy after we put one on Icardi.”
When referring to Real Madrid, PSG and Manchester United, Spalletti said that: “Mauro looks better in striped shirt, not the plain one. He is not the type of player that wants to change without leaving his mark at a club.”
“Spalletti’s words made me happy because he always speaks well about Mauro as do other coaches and teammates that he has at Inter. About this situation, allow me to speak: sometimes I hear that he does not have good relationship with some of his teammates but it is not true. He was chosen to be captain at age 22 and has always behaved well with everyone.”
How is Icardi now?
“He is well. Yesterday he tried a few shots and the feeling was good. In recent weeks, Inter asked him to not risk it despite the fact that he wanted to come back. I hope that he will rejoin the group soon.”
