Inter Milan are ready to sell Mauro Icardi for £52m in the summer.
According to AS, via The BBC, Inter Milan have set Icardi’s price tag at €60m, as they look to move on the forward.
Inter wanted to increase his release clause to a whopping €220m but, according to AS, Icardi was unhappy with that as it would obstruct a dream move to Real. He may have returned to action, but he still wants out.
Initial contract talks stalled in January, and Icardi has ultimately stripped of the club captaincy shortly after.
He then missed the next ten games with what was described as a knee injury, before making his long-awaited return to the first team in early April.
Chelsea have been heavily linked with a move to sign Icardi, as they look to land a new number nine in the next transfer window.
The Blues signed Gonzalo Higuain on loan from Juventus in January, but the striker has scored three goals in 13 appearances for the club so far – with all three goals coming against Fulham and Huddersfield, the two teams already relegated from the Premier League.
Icardi, meanwhile, has scored 16 goals in all competitions for Inter this season, despite his issues off the pitch.
