THE Argentine, Mauro Icardi’s situation at Inter is increasingly uncertain due to a series of issues but his team-mates are waiting for him to come back.
Inter players will welcome Mauro Icardi back into the team “with open arms” despite his seemingly fractious relationship with the club, according to Antonio Candreva.
There is a great deal of uncertainty surrounding Icardi, as the Argentina striker and the Nerazzurri hierarchy are at loggerheads due to a series of issues.
Not only are contract negotiations said to have stalled, Inter are reported to beunhappy with Icardi’s wife and agent Wanda Nara publicly commenting on club matters. He was also stripped of the captaincy last week.
Following that decision head coach Luciano Spalletti said Icardi decided not to play in their Europa League last-32 first leg against Rapid Vienna, with the 26-year-old suggesting on social media he is nursing a right knee injury.
Icardi watched the 2-1 victory over Sampdoria on Sunday from the stands and a scan on Wednesday suggested no significant knee issue was detected, but Candreva insists the team are looking forward to his return despite the ongoing saga.
