Official: Icardi Gets #7 Shirt - But Doesn't Make Inter Squad

Update: Icardi's wish has been granted: he's become the new #7 at Inter. He did not make the squad for the first game against Lecce tonight, however.

On August 9 2019, Inter Milan announced that new signing Romelu Lukaku will get the club's shirt number 9, which was actually occupied by Mauro Icardi. Now reports from Italy say that Mauro Icardi has reportedly chosen Inter’s No 7 shirt as he is now thinking of staying at the club.

What Will Happen With Icardi? Lukaku Gets #9 At Inter

The Argentine has been left out of first-team training for the past month. Icardi has already threatened legal action if he is not brought back to the first team.

Sport Mediaset claims he asked for the club’s No 7 jersey - as a sign of his intention to be reintegrated - and had his request accepted.

It comes despite the number being preferred by Alexis Sanchez, who is set to sign from Manchester United.
