Mauro Icardi to Milan? Five big 'treasons' in European soccer

If Mauro Icardi arrives at Milan, Inter fans might feel betrayed. However, this would not be the first time that a footballer plays in two teams historically confronted.

Mauro Icardi's future may not be in Paris Saint-Germain. AC Milan is interested in signing the Argentinian striker who has been recovering from his knee injury since October. If he arrives at the Italian club, Inter fans might feel betrayed, because Icardi played there for six seasons, from 2013-14 to 2018-19.

However, this would not be the first time that a footballer plays in two teams historically confronted. For example, Gonzalo Higuaín was the protagonist of one of the last major controversies in the Italian Serie A. After three years in Napoli, the Inter Miami striker joined Juventus in July 2016.

Carlos Tevez did something similar. The current Boca player won the 2008 Champions League with Manchester United. However, he later signed a contract with Manchester City. As a result, The Red Devils' fans burned the shirts with Tevez' name on them. On the other hand, German Mario Gotze moved from Borussia Dortmund to Bayern Munich in 2013. Due to his poor performance, he returned to Dortmund in 2016, but fans no longer wanted him.

Luis Figo is pointed out as one of the biggest traitors in the history of soccer. Although he was one of the most important soccer players in Barcelona, he joined Real Madrid on July 24th, 2000. Finally, former defender Sol Campbell left Tottenham after 10 years playing there and signed a contract with Arsenal in 2002.
