The Nerazzurri are currently third in the Serie A table, sitting 2 points behind league-leaders Napoli. A big reason for the success of Inter so far would be the likes of striker Mauro Icardi.
Who can forget his absolute heroic hat-trick against fierce rivals A.C. Milan? 3 goals to put away the Rossoneri earned Icardi Man of the Match honors, which put him and Inter back on the European spotlight.
The Argentine has been in brilliant form as of late. In his last five matches, Mauro has scored 5 goals and an assist, receiving 2 Man of the Match awards in the process.
Of course, stunning play for Inter can only mean that the bigger clubs are going to come in and swoop the player away. Icardi’s play has now tangled him into the latest bundle of transfer rumors.
It’s being rumored that Real Madrid are really interested in Bayern attacker Robert Lewandowski. If that transfer happens, the void will obviously need to be filled for the German side.
What makes Arsenal and Chelsea interested. The two English clubs signed Alexandre Lacazette and Alvaro Morata to their respective clubs in the recent window, meaning that they’d be looking at Inter’s top scorer for depth.
Even though club’s might be racing for Icardi’s signature, Inter have made it clear that they want the Argentine to stay. His $110 million release clause could be raised if need be.
However, we know what the top clubs in Europe can do with money. Look at Neymar’s move to PSG in the Summer Window. The next several months should be interesting for Icardi and these latest developments.
