Outcast Icardi ‘agrees a €8m-a-year deal with Juve and he will take No.9 shirt


The journalist of the Italian media Calciomercato.com and La Gazzetta dello Sport Nicolò Schira has revealed that Icardi has agreed a personal term with Juventus and he will wear No.9 shirt.

Juve announced their squad for the International Champions Cup and the numbers for their new signings on Friday.

Gianluigi Buffon will wear No 77, with Matthijs de Ligt No 4, Aaron Ramsey No 8, Adrien Rabiot No 25 and Merih Demiral No 28.

Gonzalo Higuain, however, will wear No 21 on his return from Chelsea as opposed to 9.


That was followed by Gazzetta dello Sport reporting Icardi had agreed a five-year contract with the Old Lady worth 8m a season plus bonuses.

However, the newspaper is not expecting any movement until the end of August as the Bianconeri look to reduce Inter’s asking price of 50-60m.

The Inter boss Conte has reiterated in the conference that Icardi is ‘out of the club project’.
