Chelsea fans walk in to the Football Transfer Tavern with glum looking faces after the Daily Mail revealed that one of their top targets, Mauro Icardi, has signed a new four year deal at Inter Milan.
The forward, who has been compared to the ‘new Ronaldo’, has been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge throughout this whole season but it looks as though they will have to wait longer to secure his future.
The 22-year-old was the joint top goalscorer in the league last season with 22 goals and he is considered as one of the hottest prospect to come from Serie A.
Punters understand why he may have chosen the San Siro over a move to London, only because he is guaranteed game time under Roberto Mancini which is the best choice for his development.
Because if he did move to Chelsea, he could find himself doing the same thing as Juan Cuadrado, and just sit on bench as Eden Hazard’s and Willian’s positions look untouchable.
