Inter management is currently working on a deal to extend the club’s current top scorer Mauro Icardi’s contract.

FCInterNews.it however understand it has currently stalled due to a disagreement between Inter management and Icardi’s agent (and wife) Wanda Nara. The main reason behind the disagreement is the buyout clause of the player.

Sporting director Piero Ausilio and technical coordinator Walter Sabatini want the clause to be set in and around the 180-200m mark while Nara would like the current €110m clause upped just €20m to sit at €130m.

Both the parties are on the same page regarding his wages at this moment though. The player will receive 7.5m per season once he signs the new contract. The contract will be through to the summer of 2022 and have a conditional extension clause for one more year included.

The 24-year-old forward has been in fine form this term netting 17 goals in as many Serie A games earning multiple Argentine national team call-ups in the process.
