Chelsea submit £22m bid to Serie A star as target delays signing new deal

Icardi.jpgChelsea fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are feeling hopeful and confident after talkSPORT revealed that Mauro Icardi had delayed signing a new deal after Chelsea reportedly submitted a £22m bid.

The Blues have clearly ruffled some feathers at Inter as they are determined to keep hold of their talisman.

Icardi has been tipped to become the next superstar in football, so Jose Mourinho is keen to snap him up.

The 22-year-old has attracted attention from several clubs as he has netted 18 goals in Serie A this season.

Inter boss Roberto Mancini will be gutted that Chelsea have thrown a spanner in the works after being on the verge of keeping hold of his star player.

It is clear the presence of the newly-crowned Premier League champions has had an affect on Icardi because he knows it is one of the best platforms in world football to prove yourself.

Also with the future of Didier Drogba in doubt, Icardi could be the main man to support Diego Costa, and could even take his place in the starting line up.

Chelsea fans. Do you think Mauro Icardi has had his head turned by the Blues? Let us know your thoughts below.
