Icardi Juve deal inches closer
Mauro Icardi has reportedly agreed personal terms to join Juventus, but no fee has been agreed with Inter Milan.
The 26-year-old is said to have agreed terms with the Serie A champions, said to be worth £135,000 a week plus bonuses, to join Massimiliano Allegri's side.
Juventus are ready to offer a cash-plus-player deal, with Douglas Costa going the other way, but Inter Milan are not interested and want a straight cash deal.
Icardi has had a troubled season at Inter and, despite the reports, his wife and agent Wanda Nara said he is not leaving.
On her Italian TV show, Tiki Taka, Nara said: "I'm tired of repeating that he wants to stay at Inter.
"I'll turn my phone off on the first day of the transfer window. There have been offers, but Icardi's staying at Inter. That's it."
