Inter reject player-plus-cash offer for Man Utd target Icardi

Mauro Icardi TEAMtalk

Inter Milan have reportedly rejected Roma’s first offer for reported Manchester United target Mauro Icardi.

The controversial Argentina striker has been linked with moves to Juventus and Manchester United this summer with Inter looking increasingly likely to offload the 26-year-old this summer.

Icardi has agent and wife Wanda Icardi have not been on favourable terms with Inter since he was stripped of the captaincy three months ago.

Serie A rivals Roma are interested in the forward and La Repubblica state the capital club have made their first offer for the striker.

Roma moneyman James Pallotta has sanctioned a €30million bid, plus Edin Dzeko, but Inter have rejected the proposal outright.

Whether United’s interest in Icardi is open to debate, but they will most definitely be looking for a striker if Romelu Lukaku is sold this summer.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is believed to be open to selling the Belgium striker after he failed to impress the Norwegian at Old Trafford last season.

However, only this week respected Italian journalist Gianluca di Marzia claimed United had rejected Inter’s advances to take Icardi off their hands, in a deal that would have seen Lukaku, plus €20m heading towards the San Siro club.

Icardi scored 17 goals in 37 appearances for Inter last term, but with Inter’s concerns over FFP he looks like being sold as they look to get him off the wage bill.
