Real Madrid reportedly agree deal for €110 million Argentinian striker

France v Brazil - International Friendly

Los Blancos have come to an agreement with Inter Milan for the transfer of Mauro Icardi. He is contracted to the club until 2021, so it would require a big fee to prise him away. However, money isn't an issue for the European champions.

The 24-year-old has been in blistering form this season with 16 goals in 15 league games. Inter's attack is built around him. Losing him would be a huge blow especially considering they have a real chance of winning Serie A this season. There is a lot of confusion over his contract situation with some reports stating that he has a €110 million release clause while others state that €92 million could be enough to secure his services. While some Italian media outlets claim that Inter will offer him a contract extension with a bigger release clause. Regardless, Real are clearly interested in him.

Icardi had issues with the Inter ultras last season, and it appears as if that rift hasn't healed. This may be a potential reason why the rumours are circulating as well as why he could decide to move even though Inter have a promising future ahead of them with Luciano Spalletti at the helm.
The talented Argentinian striker has been linked with multiple clubs in Europe over the past few seasons, but he has remained loyal to the Nerazzurri.
