Revealed: there’s an anti-Juve clause in Icardi’s new Inter contract
Icardi’s Inter contract has a € 110 million release clause (the highest ever set in Italy), but which can only be activated by foreign clubs.
Inter want to prevent big Serie A rivals like Juventus from signing their stars like they did with AS Roma and Napoli last summer, when they sealed the transfers of Miralem Pjanic and Gonzalo Higuain activating both player’s release fees.
Mauro Icardi is a long time target of Juventus as the bianconeri tried to sign the Argentinean striker last summer, before completing the transfer of Gonzalo Higuain from Napoli.
The bianconeri DS Fabio Paratici is a long time admirer of Icardi. He’s the one who brought him to Serie A, signing him at Sampdoria from Barcelona’s academy.
