Mauro Icardi is set to leave the Italian club finally, following the comments from his agent and spouse.

The 23-year old player netted 16 times in the Serie A in the last season, six lesser than the number of goals in the previous season. There have been a lot of interests in the player but they have all been waved off in the past.

The agent and wife gave a hint that the player will finally leave the club when she was interviewed by CalcioMercato. Football Italia quoted her and confirmed that Icardi has been placed on a transfer list to Spanish side Atletico Madrid. The Argentinean has a reputation in Europe as one of the most talented goal scorers. The agent, Wanda Icardi, even took to her social media handle to reveal the state of things where she tweeted that the player was available.

The tweet proved legit when she confirmed it at the interview that the player would likely play elsewhere in the forthcoming campaign. “From what I can see, Inter have put Icardi up for sale. Mauro would be very sad to leave Inter, but we’ve understood the club’s economic situation and evidently they cannot hold Icardi back.”

There are also reports that Inter Milan have received an offer in excess of £34m from interested clubs but have rejected it. Premier League sides Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal are believed to be interested in the player. In France, Paris Saint Germain, who are looking for forwards since the departure of Ibrahimovic, want the youngster to partner with Edison Cavani in the coming season. However, Atletico Madrid remain at the forefront of signing the player. There are reports that Inter has placed the release clause at £43m but none say if Atletico will pay such amount for the player, despite their huge interest.
