Wanda Nara’s demands for Mauro Icardi to join Galatasaray include personal chef

Footballers can be very hard to please.

Whether its eye watering wages accompanied by show-stopping signing on fees or even the little things like the hotel you were put up in the day before, transfers can collapse beneath the weight of lofty demands. In the modern era, transfer negotiations have never been more unpredictable and frustrating.

And Galatasaray’s recruitment team may have found this out the hard way when they were pitted against Mauro Icardi’s illustrious wife and agent Wanda Nara. Predictably, the Paris Saint-Germain loanee’s partner in business and life was very hard to please.

Icardi was greeted by an enormous Galatasaray crowd when his loan move from PSG was confirmed. The Argentine was one of Okan Buruk’s biggest signing of the summer when he secured his temporary move from the French giants.

However, this transfer was not completed without painstaking negotiations and constant toing and froing between the parties. According to Mundo Deportivo, via the Sun, Nara made six very specific demands of Galatasaray.

One of the first demands she made was for their own private chauffeur to be available to them 24 hours a day. If that was not enough, a private chef was also demanded to be included as part of any deal.

One of the more understandable, but still tricky, requests was for a house, complete with full security, to be secured by the time they arrived in Istanbul. However, Nara also reportedly wanted a hotel to stay in until December, as well as schools for her children to attend as they acclimatise to life in Turkey.

If the lofty demands were anything to go Galatasaray will certainly be hoping the Argentine is worth the money and the negotiations. Fortunately, Icardi said he was “very excited” to get going in Turkey.

"I'm very excited,” Icardi said to Turkish supporters. “I’'ll be here for a year and that's the idea to achieve success. We will see later what happens next. My family and I are very happy to come to Istanbul."
