The journalist, who seems to like to think he’s In The Know claims that, after the Benzema deal fell through, we turned our attention to Inter Milan striker, Icardi, but had our offer rejected.
Icardi scored 27 goals in 48 appearances for the Serie A team, which is a huge amount and apparently talks are ongoing. However, judging by Giulianelli’s reliability so far, I doubt we were ever interested.
What has gone on behind the scenes after Benzema deal went off: Arsenal showed interest in Mauro Icardi but Inter refused to sell him.
