Icardi's problem wasn't that he was a mercanary, it really was that Wanda was his agent and also his ego was too big. If she talks shit about his teammates and Icardi doesn't stop her, obviously that will start problems in the squad.

What Inter showed is that we can always find a replacement for a striker. Be it Adriano, Ibra, Milito, Icardi or Lukaku. Wanda&Icardi probably thought we needed them...
Yep, they simply didn't want to do business with Wanda and all the extra shit which came with that while Icardi is the captain at the same time.

They pull the plug and that was the right move eventually (even though I remember being pissed about it how they handled it).

Lautaro wants to stay here, they just need to find the correct, financial agreement between the two (agent and the club).

Everyone wants to stay here until they don't.

Get real guys. Even our boy Dimarco can join Real Madrid tomorrow and I'll be fine with it. It's just the way they choose to do it.

Nothing surprises us anymore.

I wouldn't be surprised if Lautaro leaves one day, I can't say that I would; but my jaw would hit the floor if he chooses the farmer's french league 😅

I'd be more understanding if he went to Saudi, since PSG would only make sense for money, and since money is the factor, why not go all in and play in Saudi Arabia.

We will have to go through this generation of players changing teams I believe, until it becomes the new black/the new cool to stay in one club again.

It doesn't take much for it to happen, just a generational talent preaching about loyalty to his club, and the herd will follow.

Not everyone is after the money as the main priority. Agents are, of course, but if the player has the real power and knows what he really wants, they decide.

Lautaro wants to stay, agent is given this assignment so then he needs to squeeze as much money as possible with the assignment in mind.

I don't think that Lautaro is attached to Inter same way as someone like Barella is.
He is good here, already captain and an important figure, but if we win the scudetto and he became a top goalscorer, I can understand him if he looks to another challenge. Especially if Real are involved. He might be flattered to be a Mbappe replacement and the protagonist at PSG as well. No body knows what is going on in his head.

You make it out to be more than it is to be honest. If he decides to go for a pile of money, so be it. He will go as a legend. But we have to keep on operating sustainably and I am pretty sure that we will take our chance to have him extend if there is the opportunity to do so.

Don't have one.
If someone said even last year here's 100 mil for him, I would have gladly took it, but now no way even for 150 mil. And it's not that I think we can't replace him, it's that we waited for him so long to hit the current levels of quality that it would feel like a proper shame and waste to not enjoy him more.

He had a really organic and steady rise, which we allowed by playing him all the time, and I hate a feeling of us being a springboard for some other club to enjoy him as a finished and almost world-class product.

Plus we would be also losing a great captain and as much as we currently have good players all around I don't see anyone more naturally fitted to that role than him.

Lautaro proved to be a man of class when he shut his own father's mouth in his debut season when the guy complained about the little time Spalletti had been giving to his son. The management knows his character and they will not let him go because of a few more million he asked.

I'm going to tell you Lautaro doesn't want to go to PSG. He might be flattered but isn't gonna change is status at Inter and Milano for more money at PSG.

We don't know what's going on in his head but we can listen to he says and I don't see any reason not to believe what he's saying.

I trust Lautaro's words 100%.

Skriniar didn't talk after the "Hamsik" interview. Lukaku is a different animal.

i am all for Lautaro staying, but id understand if he wants to leave, as there is no way he's not just a little pissed of how this club is ran by the owners. Having to sell important players, can't buy players, he needs to play every year with a new striker... i mean, its fucked up.

Was reading somewhere how Lautaro was a level below Haaland, Mbappe and Kane. I'll take this Lautaro any day every day over any of those 3 players.

I don't think he wants to leave Inter per se. I believe him when he says he likes it at Inter. But he also wants his money. If he can have it at Inter, great. If not, he look for it elsewhere.
