Blow for Chelsea as club CEO vows to do everything to keep hold of €110million superstar

Chelsea could be looking to sign Mauro Icardi, according to reports and Inter Milan’s CEO Alessandro Antonello has stated that he will try to keep the striker at the San Siro next season.

Icardi has been one of the best players in Serie A and scored 29 goals from just 34 league games. Inter finished 4th in the league and have made it to the Champions League.

His performances have attracted the attention of many clubs and it is reported that the 25-year-old has a release clause of €110million.

While speaking to RMC Sport (h/t Football.London), Antonello said:

“We will do everything we can to keep the captain here at Inter.

“He is a vital player for us. Juventus? There are many rumours but we must remain calm we have our plans. We need to close the financial year first and then we will think about which players we can sign.”

Alvaro Morata might have been our main striker for last season but the Spaniard did not light up Stamford Bridge as many would have expected him to.

The former Juventus and Real Madrid man scored only 11 goals from 31 appearances in the Premier League. We also ended up signing Olivier Giroud from Arsenal as we looked to reach the Champions League via the league standings but ultimately came up short.

It is important to note that Icardi will not come cheap and if we are really willing to pay his release clause, it would be a statement of intent and that would provide us with a great boost before the start of next season.
