Inter Milan coach Luciano Spalletti says he could be powerless to stop Mauro Icardi from being poached by a major European club, despite assurances from the Argentinian star that he is going nowhere.
“I’ve spoken with Mauro several times and he sent very precise signals,” Spalletti told Sky Sports Italia.
“He’s happy at Inter and wants to stay, but then there are clubs which, if they decide to take a player, you could have been saying ‘I won’t leave here’ the day before, then the next day they take you and in the end you’re happy to go, even though the previous day you were thinking very differently.
“We have to be ready for anything, but for now there are no signals and no doubts about what he wants.”
Mauro Icardi has been with Inter since 2013, netting 107 times across five seasons.
