Mauro Icardi is one of Europe’s hottest strikers right now, and now that he’s put his contract extension talks on hold with Italian side Internazionale, everybody’s going to want to take a piece of him.
Icardi has always been a controversial player, but there’s just no denying on how talented he is up front.
The Argentinian has excel at Italy even despite his team’s struggles, so joining a top-tier club may turn him into the best striker in the world and help him win the Golden Boot.
But, with all of the dozens of offers Wanda Nara is about to receive for her 25-year-old husband, which team should he actually consider? Let’s take a look at the 3 best destinations for Mauro Icardi
Maurizio Sarri has always had nothing but high praise for Mauro Icardi. Sarri knows him pretty well, as he was constantly trying to stop him when Napoli faced Inter, so he’d be thrilled to have him on his team for a change.
Gonzalo Higuain is set to stay at Chelsea for 6 months, but he’s no longer the player he once was. There, Icardi won’t have much competition for playing time as the team’s number 9, and he’d play against the best defenses in the world.
Mauro Icardi has praised Barcelona over and over, even stating they were the best team in the world when Inter had to face them in the UEFA Champions League. Also, he’d join his idol, Lionel Messi.
Barcelona tried to get a backup for Luis Suarez, and we all know Kevin Prince Boateng is not the right guy for that purpose. Suarez is not getting any younger, and there’s no reason to think he couldn’t play next to Icardi.
1. Real Madrid
Florentino Perez has been high on Mauro Icardi for years, and it looks like is now or never for Los Blancos. They’re struggling to score without Cristiano Ronaldo, and Icardi has already netted 14 goals in 24 caps for Inter this season.
Real Madrid needs to go back to signing Galacticos, and Icardi is the kind of player that could help them go back to contention. With Modric and Kroos behind him, he’d be on pace to score 50 goals per season for sure.
