18 Goals 3 Assists Striker On His Way To Chelsea For £21.7m?


Reports coming from the San Siro, home of FC Internazionale Milano says the club’s forward, Mauro Icardi isn’t poised to continue offer talks as there is a break down. The club’s vice president and former player, Javier Zanetti once said during an online question and answer session, “The intention is to keep Icardi”. But the player is hoping a club, say Chelsea, comes to his rescue as there is a disagreement between the player and the serie A outfits over his buyout fees.

The 22 years old Argentine forward has had a successful season with the club, netting 20 goals in 40 appearances. Chelsea had plans to complete a summer transfer move worth £21.7million for the player, but the recent development in the Italian club has been more of a stumbling block. As the Stamford bridge club looks for a replacement for departing legend Drogba, Icardi remains an option as back up striker to Spaniard Costa. The player is now hoping a club like Chelsea that have always shown interest in his services, can make moves and approach Inter in order for a transfer to materialize.

The EPL Leaders are keen on adding to their front line assault towards next season campaign. Team coach, Mourinho isn’t satisfied with the club’s recent performances at the Champions League, a round of 16 exit to PSG was the farthest progression in the ongoing Europe competition. A player like Mauro Icardi will be perfect fit as option and supporting striker. The team striking department was plagued with the frequent injuries of both Main striker and supporting striker, and Drogba was suddenly saddled with the responsibility of providing goals. With a forward like the 22 years old in the team, there won’t be fears concerning goals. Will Chelsea come to his rescue?
