Mauro Icardi was dreaming of a return to Italy over the summer and AC Milan gave it some thought, according to a report.
Icardi rediscovered his goalscoring flame last season on loan at Galatasaray from Paris Saint-Germain, scoring 22 goals in 24 league games for the Turkish club and firing them to a league title win
That led to some speculation about what the future might hold for the Argentine and it some points a return to Galatasaray didn’t seem like a possibility, but he joined them on a permanent deal for a fee widely reported to be €10m.
According to Tuttosport (via PianetaMilan), Icardi asked his entourage to try and get him a move back to Italy and Inter specifically, a club that he still holds dear in his heart.
However, they decided to go for Marcus Thuram. Milan, Juventus and Roma gave some thought to signing Icardi but they also decided to make other decisions, leaving the striker with little choice but to go back to Istanbul.
