There has been some detective work going on this week in order to try to get a handle on one of the many Arsenal transfer rumours doing the rounds at the minute. And this digging has revealed the interesting fact reported by 101greatgoals that the agent of the Inter Milan striker Mauro Icardi, who also happens to be the player’s wife Wanda Nara, is currently in London.
Of course this could be for a number of reasons, including a shopping trip to spend some of the ridiculous money that a footballer earns these days, but Milan is not exactly lacking in shopping opportunities itself. Also there was an Evening Standard report this week in which she mentioned Arsenal specifically as she spoke about the situation regarding Icardi and his possible transfer away from Inter.
She said, “I’ve asked for a renewal because the club had promised me a renewal. Last year we accepted their conditions, which mean a lower salary, the sale of the 50% of Mauro’s economic rights and there is no release clause on his contract. They have to keep their promises.”
“There are many offers, but I do not negotiate with other clubs. I only talk about Mauro’s contract, that’s my role, not doing negotiations. Atletico Madrid, Tottenham and Arsenal have made contact. Napoli and Roma are also interested now.”
So is Wanda Nara in London to talk about his contract with people from Arsenal? Time will tell Gooners.
