The Two Clubs That Want To Sign Inter Milan Ace Mauro Icardi

Mauro Icardi's future remains uncertain at Inter Milan after contract negotiations have stalled.

The 25-year-old striker's current deal is set to expire in 2021, but the Italian club wants to push ahead with a new contract to eliminate his release clause.

Icardi's contract includes a €110m release clause that becomes active for a two-week time frame, running from 1st July until 15th July.

The Argentina international's agent and wife, Wanda Nara, has revealed that two of the biggest clubs in Spain are interested in him.

"Right now, Icardi's renewal with Inter is very far away," she told Diario AS (via Football Espana).

"We're far from reaching an agreement. The figures being talked about in Italy aren't true and we haven't received a satisfactory proposal from Inter yet.

"I won't deny that we can reach an agreement, but right now we're very far apart. It's not logical to renew Mauro's contract for the amount he currently earns.

"We believe Mauro is worth more than that. There are some very important clubs interested in signing him.

"For example, there are the two biggest clubs in Spain, with whom we have excellent relationships, plus an English team and a French one."

Nara's comments would suggest that Real Madrid and Barcelona are interested in the Inter Milan captain.

Los Blancos have been reportedly searching for a new player to fill the void that Cristiano Ronaldo left.

Icardi came through Barça's famed La Masia, so it would not be hard to rule out the interest from the reigning La Liga champions.

When it comes to the English team that Nara mentioned, Chelsea have been linked with the Inter Milan ace in the past.

Former Inter Milan striker Adriano revealed that he would love to have played alongside Icardi.
