A story coming out of Spain today suggests that Inter’s Captain, Mauro Icardi, is on the verge of a January transfer move to Spanish giants Real Madrid. It has also been reported that a medical has already been organised for later this month.
According to the Spanish TV programme El Chiringuito featured on the Mega TV channel, a deal between the Argentinian number nine and Real Madrid has all but been agreed. The reporter Pipi Estrada reports that the striker has agreed a deal in principle and is to meet with the Madrid club as early as the 26th December to finalise details and have his medical. The bid is thought to be in the region of €80 million plus €12 million in bonuses to Inter with Icardi receiving €9 million a year net in wages, plus up to 30% of image rights.
The 24-year-old has been in fine form this season scoring 16 goals in 15 games as Inter remain unbeaten in Serie A this season.
