Mino Raiola wants to take Serie A star to Manchester United
Mino Raiola wants to act as an intermediary to take Mauro Icardi to Manchester United in the summer, reports Corriere dello Sport.
The Italian agent has seen several clients join Manchester United since Jose Mourinho took charge in 2016, including Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Romelu Lukaku.
It is understood that the super agent wants to takeover as Icardi’s primary representative, although the Inter Milan attacker is seemingly happy to continue working wit his current agent/wife, Wanda Nara.
That said, Icardi recently stopped following Nara on Instagram after rumours of a rift in the marriage.
There have been reports in Italy suggesting Nara is in the process of negotiating a new deal with Inter, although Raiola is apparently offering to counter that by working on a deal to take the Argentine to Old Trafford.
GRAB THIS OFFER WITH BETFAIR
Icardi has previously been linked with Arsenal but a deal never came to full fruition, and The Sun believe if the striker signs a new deal with Inter they will need to pay £135m to secure his signature.
United manager Jose Mourinho recently captured Chilean attacker Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal and afterwards said there will be no forwards targeted in the summer, but Raiola is a powerful man in the football world and maybe he feels there’s room for one more.
After all, not many clubs would turn down the opportunity to sign a player like Icardi. There will be no shortage of interest if he is to leave Serie A.
