His salary is also too big for a bench player

Can’t believe people would even consider having him back in any capacity as an option again… 🤣😂
As a player he is still good enough. If only that was the only thing to think about, even the big wages would be worth it

Is he still with Wanda. ????

That's the question you should be asking yourselves


If not than his career might see some improvements

We had no idea if he was good enough, though. He hasn't played real, high level football in three years. And sorry, but I'm not willing to call him "back" after dominating a farmer's league and United's wretched defense.

Not as big as 10m per year.

Definitely as good as dragging your team single-handedly forward. There's a bunch of players with 10m per year doing jackshit.

Icardi is a very rare player. Though comparisions with Lautaro make no sense at all. He's probably the most clinical striker I have seen in my life, and I have been watching football for over two decades.

Too bad his adventure with Inter ended badly.

Icardi does not drag shit single-handedly forward lol. He is not Ibrahimovic. But a fox in the box and teams have to spoon feed him.

Obvious evidence is that we (Inter the team) are not weakened in terms of scoring a bit since he left. Neither did PSG.

Which 10m striker doing jackshit you mention? Not a single Serie A player getting paid that high. "Very rare" argument...I agree. that type of striker has been extinct since Roy Makaay/ Huntelaar and nowadays even GKs are asked to be more involved in the buildup.

Before I comment on your post, define what does dragging your team forward means to you?

I already said. Similar to how Ibra carried us to Scudettos.

But you are contradicting yourself mate. If Ibra carried Inter on his shoulder towards Scudetto, then why not giving Icardi the credit he deserves?

They played with different teams. Ibra had far easier job to do that time in Serie A. Gobbi was relegated for cheating, and Inter was supposed to take over the ship. Besides, Ibra completely faded away in CL matches while it mattered the most.

Carried your team forward doesn't necessary means that you have to score impossible goals or dribbling your opponents or whatever. I don't have idea how do you define it, but once you drag your team to the next level while doing the impossible with limited amount of resoures, that can be considered as dragging your team forward.

Icardi has played with far inferior squad. He got the service because he was the one to make difference during that time and he delivered, no matter in which kind of match he played in.

He was an asshole for his character off the pitch, but for whatever you guys are discrediting his contribution in the pitch, you are just lying yourselves.

Well, so our standards have huge difference. I would not convince people on subjective opinions.

But let's point back to my original post. Which makes him so special to be paid more than the entire Serie A?

Sorry, that much for a 30yo in a farmers league is beyond retard. Galatasaray has to pay to convince good players to consider Turkey. But Inter? Come on.

Most players that leave Inter, they get the "fuck him" treatment and they get hated everytime that players team doesn't win.

Skriniar, Perišić, Shaqiri, Onana, Hakimi, Cancelo, Coutinho, K-Dog,..

So many posts about "he was overrated at Inter, hahah bitch, you change clubs because you are a fuckhead"

Even Kovačić, who was loved here gets hated because he wasn't instrumental at winning all of those CLs.

A part of FIF is reaaaaaally toxic.

Icardi dragged the team because the team was built around him. Most of our tactics were to move the ball wide, where Candreva or Perisic crossed the ball towards Icardi. It's not occasional that he delivered most of the goals and many people were concerned about scoring when he left for PSG. But we changed the tactics, and Oh miracle, the team started to score even more.
In fact, we as Inter fans used to overestimate him, while no top club was ready to pay his release clause or something close to that.

But what's wrong with building your team around your best asset? Icardi was the best thing we had that time, and he delivered. You build the team around players you think will succeed or make difference. Inter is still playing the ball out wide and moving around with our wingbacks, but we are less predictable because we have more quality these days and our tactics differ to what has been with Icardi days.

Other than Skriniar and Onana (''hated'' by pretty much just me), has any of those players got any hate? I dont think anyone even cared for Kondogbia, Coutinho or Shaqiri. Hakimi is still missed, while the only hate for Cancelo would be cause he went to Juve, but thats Inters fault, as they didn't buy him.
Also, me saying Kovacis has not showed his full potential and has been the same player since Madrid is not hate.

Another source writes that

Icardi looked for Inter return before Galatasaray move – report

Mauro Icardi tried to find a way back to Inter before ultimately signing for Galatasaray this summer, reports suggest.

The Argentinian striker spent six years of his career with the Nerazzurri from 2013 to 2019 before he left for Paris Saint-Germain, initially moving on loan before making a €50m transfer the following summer.

After a difficult spell in the French capital, Icardi relaunched his career whilst on loan with Galatasaray last season, where he scored 22 goals in 24 league matches.

As reported by Tuttosport 😅 via TMW, Icardi explicitly asked his entourage to find a way for him to return to Inter this summer, keen on wearing the Nerazzurri shirt once again.

He was so keen to return, in fact, that he rejected an approach from another big Italian club – possibly Milan – in order to try and secure the move to Inter.

After failing to find a solution, Icardi ultimately decided to sign for Galatasaray on a permanent deal, putting pen to paper on a three-year contract.
Yeah and Inter supporters were keen of him getting rid of Wanda
