Vieri: ‘Juve should have done more to sign Icardi’

Mauro Icardi

Former striker Christian Vieri said Juventus should have signed Mauro Icardi over Moise Kean this summer. ‘It’s easy for Icardi to score 20 goals’.

Juventus’ leading goalscorer Cristiano Ronaldo left the Allianz Stadium and re-joined Manchester United this summer.

The Old Lady brought back Kean from Everton, but Vieri felt the club should have ‘done more’ to sign former Inter striker Icardi from Paris Saint-Germain.

“Before Ronaldo left, I had said that Juventus’ attack is stronger,” Vieri told La Gazzetta dello Sport. “Juve were stronger. Now, I put Inter in front.

Cristiano’s 25 to 30 goals are gone, those who said it wasn’t going well will be happy. When Ronaldo leaves, there are no better options.

“But someone else must score the goals he scored. I don’t think Kean will be able to get that many, but I think it’s right to give him a whole championship to judge him.

“Icardi is someone who plays little for the team, but he’s a finished by trade, it’s easy for him to score 20 goals. Since there’s a need for those 20 goals, maybe I would have done more to get him.

“But in the market, it’s not always possible to do what seems best.”

  1. to do more for Icardi would mean to overpay for him and you actually think Juve is gonna do that ?!

  2. it’s been shifted to a January target, as I understand it … especially since M’Bappe is going to stay there

  3. Icardi guarantees more goals than Kean, however he is toxic and was kicked out of Inter for a good reason. P$G are not selling, they just keep buying…

    juBentus needs to heal after Cristiano leaving, while still having Morata on their ranks. Kulusevski and Chiesa should be starters, they are the most dangerous players from their forward department.

    Very curious to see how the Dybala situation will be managed without Marotta there.

  4. I’m Inter fan and I don’t like Juventus but I respect Juventus’ and Milan‘s name. FI should edit comments (if possible). I said before, the best of this transfer window was that Icardi is not now Juventus’ player. He would score about 25 goals and title would be Juves for sure. Now I’m optimistic we will win 20’s scudetto
