Chelsea and Manchester United are ready to battle it out for the signature of Mauro Icardi after the Argentine attacker admitted that he could leave the San Siro when the transfer window reopens.
The Italians are at risk of falling foul to Financial Fair Play rules as they look in danger of not qualifying for the Champions League. If they discover that they would need to balance the books to avoid sanction, they would surely need to sell some stars, and Icardi is one of their most Valuable players.
The Argentine has been the bedrock of this current Inter Milan team and the team has had o rely on him on so many occasions over the past few seasons, but he admits that if the team needs him to leave so that they would be fine, he would do just that.
When asked about his future, he told reporters: “I repeat every year, I will speak to the club.”
“If it’s good for the team that I stay, then I’ll stay, otherwise I will leave.”
Icardi has been tracked by some of the world’s biggest teams including Real Madrid, but a move to the Premier League could appeal more to him with Chelsea ready to battle Manchester United despite the uncertainty surrounding their managerial position.
