Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern today are celebrating a breakthrough, after it emerged that a prime target of their’s seems destined for a summer transfer.
The Daily Star says that Inter Milan are prepared to cash-in on striker and captain Mauro Icardi this summer, should the San Siro outfit fail to achieve a top-three finish in Serie A and Champions League football.
22-year-old Icardi has been eyed by United for some time and the latest developments are positive as, as it stands, Inter will not qualify for Europe’s elite competition as they currently sit in fifth place, three points behind third-placed Roma.
With Fiorentina and rivals AC Milan also to compete with in the battle for a top-three finish, Inter face a stern test in the finale of the season.
If they don’t achieve their goals, Inter will approve the sale of their Argentine captain with Corriere Dello Sport stating the Italians rate him at around £30m.
Our landlord feels that Wayne Rooney should be replaced imminently and believes Icardi, alongside Anthony Martial, could prove to be a tremendous acquisition.
