The summer transfer speculation has already begun.
And one of the names that is sure to be doing the round between now and August is Mauro Icardi.
The Argentinian striker will be one of the most sought-after frontmen in Europe and a move away from Inter Milan could feasibly be on the cards too.
It has been an interesting week for the 25-year-old.
Here we take a look at what has been happening and what has been said about his future.
Icardi’s agent, is his wife Wanda Nara.
And she is an outspoken character. She is never short of an opinion on the club and her husband’s future.
Earlier this week she spoke to Tiki Taka about Inter’s “protection” of the player, but intimated that Icardi had no plans to leave.
She said: “I’d like to see Mauro more protected by the club because sometimes nasty things have come out from inside.
“The priority is Inter, I’ve never demanded a renewal. We’re in no hurry, he still has two years left on his contract.”
What Luciano Spalletti has said
The Inter boss wants the situation resolved, and quickly.
Icardi’s form has dipped since contract negotiations stalled and speculation over his future mounted.
After a 1-0 win over Parma – Icardi’s seventh straight league game without scoring – Spalletti said: “Mauro is evidently seeing his performance affected by some situations that have been going on recently.
“He needs to free himself from the talk that is around him. The directors agreed to start talking about the contract, so now they need to go there and conclude it.”
Icardi was Inter’s captain…until Wednesday.
The Argentine was stripped of the captain’s armband, with Inter instead opting to give it to goalkeeper Samir Handanovic.
And the news went down well with one Inter player in particular with Marcelo Brozovic liking a number of posts of social media that mentioned Icardi being stripped of the armband in favour of Handanovic.
Not only that, but Icardi was then left out of the Inter squad for the Europa League clash away at Rapid Vienna on Thursday.
What Icardi has said
The frontman has been very cryptic on social media this week.
Losing the captain’s armband has not stopped him talking, although he is talking in quotes – and not his own.
On Friday he said: “It’s better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than open it and remove all doubt,” quoting Mark Twain.
He followed that up with: “Confuse them with your silence. Surprise them with your actions.”
Who else is interested?
Juventus have also been linked with a move for the striker and manager Massimiliano Allegri was asked about Icardi.
He said: “I don’t know anything about the market. I prefer to go to the beach in the summer! The club takes care of the players and makes them available.
“Icardi is a forward who can score goals, but I leave the assessments to [Inter boss Luciano] Spalletti, who coaches him and knows him better.”
