According to a recent report from Gazzetta dello Sport, Inter Milan forward Mauro Icardi is set to turn down potential offers from Napoli and Roma in favour of a switch to Italian champions Juventus. The two parties have already agreed to personal terms, as the forward edges closer and closer towards what would easily be the biggest move of his career so far.
Icardi’s perceived attitude has been listed as a reason why many top clubs wouldn’t be interested in signing him on a permanent basis, but as time goes on, it certainly seems like that side of the story is being exaggerated more and more by both sides.
If you base the decision on his footballing ability alone and nothing else, then it’s a no brainer, as he is easily one of the most exciting finishers in European football today. The question is: what exactly are the club looking for?
