Paratici confident Juventus can tempt Icardi with bumper contract offer

Juventus sports chief Fabio Paratici is eager to step up plans to sign Inter Milan striker Mauro Icardi.

Paratici angered Inter management last month when openly declaring a January attempt for the unhappy Argentine.

However, TMW says Paratici is confident bringing Inter to the table by agreeing to discuss a swap involving Paulo Dybala.

The difference will get down to the cash component - understood to be around €20m - which Inter will insist Juve pay. The Nerazzurri rate Icardi at €130m, while they see Dybala in the €110m class.

Meanwhile, Juve will offer Icardi a deal rising to €9.5m including bonuses - which far outstrips what Inter have been willing to consider during new contract talks with the striker.
