Reports are suggesting that Mauro Icardi has an agreement with Juventus.
Icardi's Inter Milan career took a dramatic turn following events this week. He was stripped of the captaincy with keeper Samir Handanovic named the new club skipper.
The Argentine striker also refused to travel to Austria for Inter Milan's Europa League fixture.
"Icardi was called up, and has decided not to travel to Vienna," coach Luciano Spalletti said in his pre-match press conference.
His uncertainty at San Siro stems from protracted talks about a new contract.
The 25-year-old is contracted to Inter Milan until 2021. But his wife and agent, Wanda Nara, has been in dialogue with the club over a new deal.
Though it appears talks have broken down. Reports now claim Icardi has struck terms with Juventus.

Italian journalist Valer De Maggio, via calciomercato, has offered his insight onto the Icardi situation and he's dropped a huge bombshell.
"I think Inter know Icardi has already an agreement with Juventus," he said. "Inter are a big club and Marotta is a top director. Remove his captaincy is a big decision and I insist that, for me, Icardi has already reached an agreement with Juventus."
Icardi joining Juventus would be a huge statement of intent. The Serie A leaders made a massive acquisition last summer by signing Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid.
They continue to monitor new talent with Icardi also on their transfer wish list.
Will Icardi be plying his trade in Turin next season? Watch this space.
