MD - Icardi is on Atletico Madrid's wishlist: had chance to join them at 9 years old but decided to play for Barcelona

Mauro Icardi is being linked to Atletico Madrid just less than 24 hours since the announcement that Antoine Griezmann will leave the Spanish club this summer.

According to Mundo Deportivo, the Argentinian is a top striker but the reality could be that he is trying to leave Inter rather than Atletico Madrid have real interest in him. When he played in the Canary Islands (he moved there when he was 9 years old), Atletico Madrid youth coach Sosa Espinel recommended him to join the Colchoneros but he went to Barcelona.

The other names on the list are Cavani, Dybala, Aguero and Iago Aspas.
