Icardi's new Inter exit strategy? Head to Juventus

Mauro Icardi is the latest big name linked to a move with Juventus, according to reports in Italy.

Calciomercato are claiming that wantaway Inter striker Icardi has chosen Turin as his next destination, while Corriere Dello Sport agree, suggesting that Juventus are keeping the No. 9 shirt open for the current Inter striker until he makes the switch.

Icardi has filled these transfer pages for most of the summer, with a '"will he or won't he" narrative fuelling much of the transfer rumours since the end of the 2018-19 campaign. He was frozen out of the club before then going on strike after being stripped of the captaincy.

Now though, with the season fast approaching, he looks set to be edging closer to a move to the Serie A champions.

That deal could hinge on Inter's ability to prise Romelu Lukaku away from Manchester United, with boss Antonio Conte reinforcing his desire that he is keen to land the Belgian attacker.

As always, a domino effect could be looming, but we await the first move.
