Chelsea fans set to see £90 million target Icardi sign big contract
Reports have claimed Chelsea target Mauro Icardi is all set to sign a new deal at Inter Milan, amid rumours he is wanted at Stamford Bridge.
Despite a very impressive unbeaten start to life at Stamford Bridge, there has been a lot so speculation in the media that Blues boss Maurizio Sarri is keen to bring in a world class forward to help Eden Hazard out, as both Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud have failed in front of goal so far this season.
And reports suggested that Icardi was the Italians top transfer target and with some even suggesting he is ready to activate the Argentine’s £90 million release clause to bring him to the Premier League.
But despite all the rumours and uncertainty surrounding his future, the Calcio Mercato website has claimed that Icardi is all set to put pen to paper and sign a new and improved deal that will keep him at the club until the summer of 2023.
Icardi has recently admitted that there has been offers to leave the club, but he has no desire to leave the club and is more than happy with the Italian side.
He was recently quoted on the Metro website: ‘I do not know if everything that is published is true. I always say that I am very good with my family at Inter, I have no intention of leaving.
‘Offers came in the summer but I have neither the need nor the desire to leave. Offers always arrive. At the moment I am very calm and I am focused on what we are doing with the team of which I am a captain. We are going to play in the Champions League and the offers will not move me.’
Will Sarri be disappointed with the message from Icardi? Here is what we think.
Icardi hit 29-goals last season and has already found the net nine times this season, so of course Sarri would be disappointed to hear the news that Icardi has no interest in leaving Milan and making the move to Chelsea.
However, Chelsea have a number of transfer targets and will just switch their attentions this January, if they are serious about signing a forward.
