Real Madrid attempting for Icardi but the player is finalizing new contract with Inter
If Real Madrid are seriously considering Mauro Icardi then they certainly did not pick the right moment for it. For almost two weeks, the release clause of 110 million was active for foreign clubs and that expired on July 16th. From this moment onwards, Inter will have the last word on any offer for their captain.
According to the Gazzetta ello Sport, it is no longer a secret that the reigning European champions are looking at Mauro Icardi, they have repeatedly done so over the last few months. For this reason, and in order to avoid any surprises, Inter and Wanda have started small steps towards the renewal of contract, which currently expires in 2021, and the increase of his wage. The Champions League participation achieved on the final game in Serie A last season plays a huge factor in “locking up” the captain. He has never played in it before and is looking forward to do it for the first time ever in an Inter shirt. And now, it is just a matter of finalizing the last details of the new contract.
Piero Ausilio, sporting director, and CFO Giovanni Gardini are now back from China after meeting with Zhang Jindong and at the moment, everyone is calm because there is still no official offer coming from Madrid. Spalletti wants Icardi, Icardi strongly wants to stay in Milan and his choice is more and more evident: in the early days of training camp, he has repeatedly expressed his love for Inter both in interviews and on social media. It is really difficult to imagine a future away from Appiano Gentile and San Siro.
