Italian football legend Andreas Pirlo has revealed that unsettled striker Mauro Icardi has a lot of work to do to get back into the Inter Milan team.
2006 World Cup winner Pirlo spoke to La Gazette dello Sport about Mauro Icardi and Inter Milan.
According to him, Lautaro Martinez is a more complete striker and Inter Milan function better with him leading the line for the Nerazzurri.
Mauro Icardi has been linked with a move to clubs like Manchester United following his feud with senior Inter Milan officials.
The 25-year-old has not played for Inter Milan since he was dropped as the Club’s captain.
Slovenian goalkeeper Samir Handanovic was named as the new Inter Milan skipper shortly after the decision was taken to strip him off captaincy duties.
Apart from Manchester United, Mauro Icardi has also been linked with a move to Chelsea and Real Madrid.
Spanish La Liga giants Real Madrid will rebuild their squad this summer and Icardi has been one of the names mooted in the media.
Real Madrid reappointed Zinedine Zidane as their manager and the French football legend is expected to oversee the signing of new players for the Los Merengues who are in desperate need of reinforcements to their squad.
Icardi has just over two years left on his Inter Milan contract.
