Boost for Chelsea with 15-goal target reportedly set to reject £6m per year deal

Mauro Icardi

The agent and wife of Inter Milan striker Mauro Icardi, Wanda Nara, is reportedly set to reject the Serie A’s club latest contract offer, which is reported to be worth £6m a year.

The South American forward missed the Serie A side’s last four games after being stripped of the club’s captaincy by manager Luciano Spalletti, with Icardi not travelling for the Europa League trip to Rapid Vienna, and suffering with an apparent knee injury for the club’s last three matches.

However, it seems the Nerazzuri’s are still keen to keep hold of their player despite the public saga and reports linking him to Chelsea and Real Madrid.

According to CalcioMercato, the latest offer is an improvement of the Argentine’s current deal at the club. The player’s wife and agent, however, is set to turn down the club’s offer immediately, sparking further speculation that the striker will leave San Siro in the near future.

Icardi has netted 17 goals in 31 matches across all competitions for Inter this season, which has taken his overall tally for the club to 122 goals in 210 appearances.

There have also been reports that Icardi would prefer to stay in Italy rather than move abroad, with rumours circling that he could end up joining either Juventus or Napoli, with both clubs potentially looking to bring in a striker during the summer transfer window.

Chelsea are still an attractive prospect, however, and the west London outfit would surely be able to come up with a package that would entice the Argentine into moving to Stamford Bridge.
