Di Marzio: "Lukaku-Icardi swap is only concrete option right now. Spalletti? Good chance he'll stay"
Is Mauro Icardi staying at Inter at 100% as Wanda Nara has been guaranteeing on numerous TV shows in the past few hours? For Sky transfer market expert Gianluca Di Marzio, the answer is no.
“Because the dynamics after what happened this year between Inter and its former captain leave this possibility open. Now, all the clubs understand that Mauro is easier to reach than in the past as they can spend less than the €110M release clause. I believe that a transfer can be done but only through an exchange. With Napoli, it is complicated given the wage that Icardi is making. Same thing applies with Cavani but it is the other way around as Inter wouldn’t be able to afford his €12M per year in wages. As of right now, the only concrete option is to do an exchange and I would say with Manchester United for Lukaku.”
Di Marzio also has the following to say on the future of Spalletti.
“Inter have not decided on who is going to be the coach next season. They must choose between Luciano Spalletti, who has a good chance of staying, or Conte.”
