Mauro ICARDI loses Inter captaincy as Samir HANDANOVIC named new captain

It is understood the decision to relieve Mauro Icardi of the Inter Milan captaincy was a mutual one

Inter Milan have stripped Mauro Icardi of the club captaincy, with goalkeeper Samir Handanovic taking over the role, according to Sky in Italy.

That transfer did not happen as Inter rejected Arsenal's loan approach, but Nara's suggestion "personal issues" were behind the forward's desire to leave prompted the club to name Samir Handanovic as their new club captain.

Argentina worldwide Icardi has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid recently, as talks over a new contract at San Siro continue to stall.

The Chinese-owned club crashed out of the Champions League and travel to Rapid Vienna for their Europe League round of 32, first-leg game on Thursday.

Icardi has a contract with the Nerazzurri until 2021 but continues to be linked with a move, with Barcelona, Real Madrid and Manchester United all having been credited with an interest.

Chelsea are one of a host of clubs linked with a transfer move for Icardi, who would fetch a monster fee for Inter as one of the best forwards in the world.

Speaking to DAZN following Saturday's 1-0 victory over Parma, manager Luciano Spalletti called for an end to the uncertainty surrounding Icardi.

Icardi's agent and wife Wanda Nara has insisted that her husband will commit his future to Inter, but speculation is likely to be fueled after the club's latest announcement.

"People have said a few too many things, now there is time to sit down and talk about something we've avoided and dragged along with us for months".
