Chelsea held talks with £90m-rated Argentine superstar

Chelsea keeping tabs with Inter Milan striker Mauro Icardi and ready to compete with Real Madrid for the footballer. Blues have problems in the front-line as Alvaro Morata is in terrible form and Olivier Giroud already up to 30. So their replacement is necessary and Argentina international is the best choice in this situation.

He started this season amazingly and proved his greatness one more time. Sarri will do everything to add him in January when the transfer window opens again. Los Blancos also keen to sign him and there will be a real battle for the player. His price could increase and become much more. Icardi joined the Italian club from Sampdoria in 2013 with a €14m deal. He became an unchanged figure for the club and scored many beautiful goals since joining.

In this campaign, Mauro already made 15  appearances, scored 11 goals and made 2 assist in all competition. This is an excellent result and he can improve his consequences during this season. The 25-year-old footballer is contracted with the Nerazzurri until 2021 and his release clause is nearly €90m. Blues set to pay big money for the player during the winter transfer window.
