Premier League duo send scouts to watch Mauro Icardi

Published Add your comment

Corriere dello Sport believe that Manchester City and Chelsea had representatives at last night's game between Inter Milan and Celtic in order to scout Argentine forward Mauro Icardi.

The young striker has gone from strength to strength after joining the Milan club from Sampdoria in 2013. To date he has scored an impressive 14 goals in his last 23 appearances and like his fellow countryman Pablo Dybala is not only piquing the interest of Europe's elite clubs but drawing comparisons to Manchester City frontman Sergio Aguero.


£32m is the figure being passed around, which would be a much cheaper option than what Palermo are rumoured to want for Dybala.

On the speculation over his future Icardi said: "I'm not interested in rumours, what counts is winning with Inter.


"But if the ones are real about Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool then I'd be honoured, because they are big clubs, but I'm already in a great team where I can win something important.

"I would certainly like to play in the Champions League, it's what every player wants and it would give me a boost towards wearing the shirt of Argentina."

Icardi will hope for an impressive display in front of the on looking scouts, if not to enhance his own reputation, then to make sure Inter head into the next round of the Europa League.
