Chelsea set to battle Real for star striker

One would think that Mauro Icardi is living the dream as the Argentinian striker is playing for his boyhood club, Inter Milan and scoring goals for fun.

The Argentinian forward has 26 goals to his name so far this season and is one of the most feared attacking players on the planet.

Icardi revealed that he “doesn’t know what the future holds” after numerous rumours linking him to Chelsea and Real Madrid. (Daily Mail)

Real madrid are in the market for a new striker and Icardi is one of three top targets for Los Blancos along with Tottenham’s Harry Kane and Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski.

Chelsea on the other hand, would really appreciate a new forward considering how poor Alvaro Morata has been this season.

It is understood that Icardi has a release clause of just under £100 million.

Where will Icardi go?
Icardi is a top quality striker who deserves to be playing at the highest level.

Inter Milan are unlikely to qualify for the Champions League this season which would open the door even wider for the 25 year old to leave the San Siro.

Icardi moved to Inter Milan in 2013 and has become a hero at the club. He even scored a hat-trick in the Milan derby earlier this season.

The Argentinian admitted that he supported Inter as a boy and would always “pick them when he played on his playstation” but great players want to test themselves and Icardi will surely leave the San Siro this summer.


Chelsea are reportedly set to sign PSV youngster Ian Maatsen, according to Dutch journalist Martijn Visscher.
Visscher claims that Chelsea are closing in on the signing of Maatsen as they look to further add to their incredibly stacked youth academy system.

Chelsea are renowned for their signing and loaning out of young talent over the years, with many players ending up in limbo.

Maastsen can play at centre-back and left-back and would likely move into the under-18’s squad ahead of next season.

Chelsea have also been linked to another PSV youngster in the form of Jayden Braaf, though this deal looks further down the line.
