​Mauro Icardis future remains up in the air as Inter continue to negotiate his exit, but his wife and agent Wanda Nara has insisted that contrary to reports this week, he wont be going to Monaco.

Wanda Nara Insists Mauro Icardi Will Not Be Moving to Monaco This Summer

The Argentine forwards relationship with the club has long passed breaking point after he was stripped of the captaincy earlier this year, and he is reported to have been told by Inter that he is welcome to stay if he wishes - he just wont be involved with the first team. 
They have fielded interest from Juventus, Napoli and Roma in his signature, but are believed to be reluctant to sell to another Serie A club - especially Juventus, who the player himself ​desperately wants to join. 
They have had limited interest from outside of Italy, with ​Manchester United briefly in the picture before the English window closed, while Monaco had also emerged as a potential destination amid speculation surrounding Radamel Falcaos move to Galatasaray. 
But Nara, whose stubborn involvement in contract negotiations is thought to be at the heart of the melodramatic fall-out between club and player, has denied that a move to the French principality is on the cards, telling Argentine outlet ​TyC: "He will not go to Monaco."
The French club may instead look to Daniel Sturridge as a potential alternative should Falcao leave, as they are reported to have ​made a last-gasp offer to snipe the former Liverpool man away from Trabzonspor. 
​Inter, meanwhile, are already planning for life after Icardi. Having already landed Romelu Lukaku, they are ​looking at the quartet of Arkadiusz Milik, Fernando Llorente, Alexis Sanchez and Ante Rebic to further boost their striking options.
