Chelsea fans are looking rather excited here in the Football Transfer Tavern as Metro seem to think that the Blues are closing in on Mauro Icardi.
The west London club have been tracking the Inter Milan striker for some time and it seems that despite talks of an extended contract with his current side, the forward is still keen on a £22 million move to the Premier League come the summer.
Chelsea and Jose Mourinho are hoping to use their connections with the Serie A side to ensure they are the ones who land the coveted forward, with Manchester United also waiting in the wings to see what happens with the proposed new deal from Inter.
Our landlord notes that Icardi is easily worth he £100,000 per week Inter are offering him – and we cannot see Jose Mourinho having a problem offering a similar wage packet to snag him in the summer.
Chelsea fans. Do you think that Icardi will make the move to Stamford Bridge this summer? What does that mean for Loic Remy? Let us know your thoughts below.
