Mauro Icardi (30-Galatasaray), who was rumored to be on his way to Real Madrid, has had his move thwarted. It turns out that Real Madrid made the first “counter-offer,” and Real Madrid officials didn’t give him a second glance.
“Regarding Icardi, a senior Real Madrid official made it clear to the player’s agent that they were not interested,” wrote Guillermo Rai, a journalist for global publication The Athletic, on social media on Friday (June 25). “According to the same source, Icardi has made a counter-offer to Real Madrid, but the club is not interested in him.
Real Madrid’s attacking line has been an injury ward this season. Vinicius Junior (23) has suffered two thigh injuries, and Jude Bellingham (20), who leads the attack alongside Vinicius, made the squad but had to return early when his injury didn’t heal. On top of that, Hodriguez (22) has been feeling a little unwell with his knee lately and has been undergoing tests to assess his condition.
Fans are already worried as president Florentino Perez (76-Spain) and coach Carlo Ancelotti (64-Italy) have stated that they will not be active in the January transfer market. In this situation, an unlikely name has emerged. Two-time Serie A top scorer in the 2010s, Icardi has suddenly been linked to the club. Icardi is currently out of the big leagues and playing for Turkkiye. 토토사이트
Italian publications Tuttomercatoweb and Turkiye’s Photomak reported on the 23rd that “Real Madrid are looking for an experienced and reliable striker. Real Madrid could spend as much as 15 million euros (21.4 billion won) to sign Icardi,” they reported simultaneously.
However, the information coming from Italy and Turkkiye, as well as from Rai, who covers Real Madrid for The Athletic, differed. Although it was the same transfer rumor, according to Rai, it was Icardi’s side that made the first move. Icardi, who is looking to return to the big leagues, realized Real Madrid’s lack of strikers and counteroffered.
