Rosea makes three considerations on the deal. “The first: Icardi did not have the slightest chance of returning to Milan. And in order to close the deal, Inter did not want to take the risk of another season of controversy, also linked to the possibility – never really concrete but always present – of a Juventus insertion for Maurito. Second point: the 50 million represents a practically total capital gain for Inter, Maurito is in fact entered in the balance sheet at just under two million. For Zhang’s company, therefore, the transfer of a player outside the technical project becomes, on the contrary, central to settle the accounts. Third consideration, the one that most interests in perspective for the nerazzurri: the purchase of Icardi is proof that in the next market, even more than in the past, those who have money to spend without necessarily having to resort to exchanges can make the difference“.
An era ends, with an Inter different from the past that has decided to cut bridges with Icardi and his wife Wanda Nara, while acknowledging the value of the Argentine as evidenced by the anti-Juve clause with 15 million more in the event of a transition to black and white. A scenario that, second The Gazzetta dello Sport, will not occur. A new path, started a year ago with the arrival of Antonio Conte, in which there is no room for Icardi, who greets Inter with 142 goals to his credit.
