Man United on alert as £110 million target all set for Inter Milan exit?
Manchester United target and Inter Milan striker Mauro Icardi is not happy at the Italian giants, as they will not give him the contract he desires.
Icardi was linked with a summer move to United after reports emerged he could leave Inter after reports emerged which suggested the Italians were not ready to open up contract talks.
It was no secret that Jose Mourinho was desperate to improve a number of key areas in the summer, and believed he needed a new striker to help out Romelu Lukaku, who is the special ones preferred hitman.
But as speculation grew on whether or not he could leave, Milan started negotiations over a new contract and it seemed Icardi was all set to stay put.
However, Italian website Calciomercato has claimed Icardi is now demanding €8m (£7.2m) plus bonuses to renew but Inter are only prepared to offer €6.5m (£5.70m) plus bonuses.
Milan are keen to get the deal done, but are not prepared to budge too much on the high wages Icardi is asking, meaning the likes of United are now ready to swoop in and offer him the kind of contract he desires.
Could Icardi really end up at United/strong>
The answer is yes he could if Mourinho manages to convince the board to give him funds to splash the cash and bring in a few world class players like Icardi.
He is a known admirer of Icardi, who netted 29-goals in Serie A last season, but it is unclear whether United will meet the £110 million release clause Icardi has in his contract.
So with the transfer window fast approaching and no new contract talks on the horizon, it will be very interesting to see what the future holds for Icardi as a number of clubs will now be keeping a close eye on proceedings.
