MAURO ICARDI SET TO LEAVE INTER MILAN FINALLY

by index

Mauro Icardi is set to leave the Italian club finally, following the comments from his agent and spouse.


The 23-year old player netted 16 times in the Serie A in the last season, six lesser than the number of goals in the previous season. There have been a lot of interests in the player but they have all been waved off in the past.

The agent and wife gave a hint that the player will finally leave the club when she was interviewed by CalcioMercato. Football Italia quoted her and confirmed that Icardi has been placed on a transfer list to Spanish side Atletico Madrid. The Argentinean has a reputation in Europe as one of the most talented goal scorers. The agent, Wanda Icardi, even took to her social media handle to reveal the state of things where she tweeted that the player was available.

The tweet proved legit when she confirmed it at the interview that the player would likely play elsewhere in the forthcoming campaign. “From what I can see, Inter have put Icardi up for sale. Mauro would be very sad to leave Inter, but we’ve understood the club’s economic situation and evidently they cannot hold Icardi back.”

CHELSEA MAKE SUMMER TRANSFER MOVE FOR NAPOLI DEFENDER KALIDOU KOULIBALY

Chelsea are preparing a fresh bid to sign Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly, according to reports from Italian newspaper Gazetta dello Sport.


The reports claims that the English Premier League giant have prepared a £23.3million bid after their initial offer was turned down.

However, Napoli are said to be determined to keep hold of the Senegalese 24-year-old, but are realistic about the chances of him leaving if the price is right. Gazzetta World claim the Italian outfit would request for as much as £30 million.  Koulibaly enjoyed a breakthrough campaign in Serie A this season, making 42 appearances for the club in all competitions

Aside Koulibaly, the management at Stamford Bridge have told Everton they will not pay the £65million fee placed on the head of Romelu Lukaku after earlier showing interest. The Belgium striker signed for Everton from Chelsea for £28m in 2014 and his impressive form at Goodison Park has seen his value rise significantly. According to reports from Express Sport, The Blues, who have reignited their interest in Lukaku, will not pay the fee Everton are demanding and will turn elsewhere if the Toffees will not negotiate. There are reports also that other interested clubs such as Manchester United and Juventus will not pay such for the player.

Meanwhile, Chelsea have been dealt a blow in their pursuit of Atletico Madrid midfielder Koke. The 24-year-old is said to be on the wish-list of summer transfer targets for incoming Blues manager Antonio Conte, and it is understood they will make an offer for him come July.
