Wanda Nara: "My relationship with Juventus director Fabio Paratici is a cordial one, and it will continue. I think Icardi will come back to Italy"
“Everyone was beating Icardi up, Moratti came out with a statement to defend him: he’s a great man. His words were like oxygen when things were suffocating…”
Wanda Nara continues to speak about Inter and his husband who is now a PSG player.
Icardi scored 29 goals in Spalletti’s first year and to be on the market. Why?
“I don’t know the financial accounts of the club or how UEFA FFP works. Perhaps in that market only Icardi could be sold.”
According to many, your words on Tiki Taka have had a decisive influence.
“Inter knew everything. They didn’t have to give me permission (to talk on Tiki Taka), I don’t have a contract with them. I never talked badly or tried to hurt them. I always tell the truth, telling lies is without courage. I will continue with Tiki Taka, Mediaset is a family.”
Why is there a bad relationship between the Croatians and Mauro?
“Everything is blown out of proportion. Relationships have always been cordial, one of them is my neighbor.”
Did Conte have to accept the choices of the club?
“I think so. I talked to him, they had guaranteed that they would have reinforced the team regardless.”
How have things changed with the arrival of Marotta?
“Football is business. Marotta makes choices and has to look after the club’s financial accounts. In the end we will see who’s done well at the end. I never had doubts about Icardi: I had 15 offers and Marotta knew it too. If we arrived at the final day, it’s not because we’re crazy, it’s because we know his family.”
Was it necessary to sue Inter?
“It was not because of money, only the ignorant believe it. If it was for money then he would have left 3-4 years ago when Inter did not play in the Champions League, but instead he stayed for the love of the club. He wanted to go back to the team and train with Conte: who knows where things could have gone with him.”
You said Icardi said no to Juve.
“He was Inter captain, he would’ve never left for Juve.”
Paratici and Wanda, there was told so much about a Icardi-Dybala exchange.
“With Fabio, I have a cordial relationship. He is interested and our relationship will continue.”
Do you think in the future Mauro can go to Juve or he’s not playing in Italy anymore?
“He likes playing in Italy. He knows the league well and has 135 goals. I think he will come back. I don’t know where and how. The priority will always be Inter.”
Is Wanda the good or bad in this story?
“I’m the one that solved it. It was difficult to get out of this situation and to find a team of that level. The choice of Paris makes myself, Icardi and the family proud. As an agent, I managed to do the best, without betraying neither the majority of fans who love him nor Inter.”
