Uncertainty Looms over the Future of Mauro Icardi

Serie A club Inter Milan can sell their striker Mauro Icardi this season to balance their books which alerts clubs from Premier League and Spanish League.

Football news: Where will Icardi go next season with Chelsea, Manchester United and Real Madrid all interested in him

Inter Milan were desperate to keep their star striker but they might have to sell him after Inter were defeated in a 2-1 match against Sassuolo which has landed a huge blow to their hopes of qualifying for next year’s Champions League.

The 25-year-old Argentinian striker could draw an amount of over £50 million if he decides to leave the San Siro, which could help the club to balance the books to appease UEFA’s financial fair play rules.

When talking to Sky Sport Italia and Mediaset Premium about his future, Icardi said, "I repeat every year, I will speak to the club. If it's good for the team that I stay, then I'll stay, otherwise I will leave. I always do what is best for the club and the team. When the season ends, we'll talk to the club and see what is best for them."

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has been trying for months to bring Icardi to Old Trafford, and this news could fuel up their ambition.

However they might face tough competition from their Premier League rivals Chelsea, who are looking to add more firepower so that they could bring the league title back next season.

On the other side the Spanish giants Real Madrid are also looking for a new striker and Icardi is on their list at third place after Tottenham’s Harry Kane and Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski.

However Inter might still have chance to keep Icardi in their squad and to finish in the top four. They are currently two points behind Lazio, and the Roman club has the next match against Crotone.

If Lazio fails to defeat Crotone and the latter wins, Inter can finish in the top four by defeating Lazio when they visit their home-ground next weekend.

Icardi later said in an interview, "We started the season in extraordinary fashion, then had a dip, but the only thing I can say is that I'm proud of what we've done.

"The objective was the Champions League and not being in it means we've missed the target we set at the start of the campaign. We always start with that as a target and we've never managed it.

"Hopefully, tomorrow Crotone will give us a chance to still fight it out with Lazio next week."
