Report - Without captain's armband, Icardi will NOT renew contract
“We know what to do and in the next few days, we will act accordingly. A proposal will go forward, but I do not know what the answer will be: there is no deadline, it is a different thing from the situation that we have talked about.”
That was Giuseppe Marotta speaking to Sky prior to Fiorentina-Inter about the question related to Mauro Icardi’s contract. According to the Corriere dello Sport, the real reason of the dispute has nothing to do with wage or length of contract or even the release clause, but it has everything to do with the captain’s armband. Because without it, Mauro Icardi does not want to play and will not renew his contract.
