Inter revealed Icardi's status on Saturday, stating: "The club and the striker have come to this decision by mutual agreement."
The Serie A side is in Lugano, Switzerland ahead of a scheduled tour of Asia, and according to Inter's statement, Icardi will not participate in those preseason preparations either. "Icardi will continue his preseason training over the next few days and will take no part in our Summer Tour in Asia."
"They are not part of our project. I say this with transparency and respect," Marotta admitted.
Icardi, capocannoniere in 2017-18, was stripped of the captain's armband last season following comments made on television by his agent and wife Wanda Nara. Icardi then refused to play in a Europa League fixture against Rapid Wien and missed a month with an alleged knee injury amid a contract dispute, an ailment that the club said a compulsory scan did not detect.
