Published Add your comment

Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City watched Inter Milan striker Mauro Icardi on Sunday evening, according to the London Evening Standard.

The report has claimed that Icardi, who is rated at around £22 million, is considering his future at the Serie A giants, with some of England's elite clubs interested in his signature. 

And it has been suggested that the 22-year-old forward would want to pick up wages in the region of £90,000-a-week if he moved on at the end of the season, bit it remains to be seen as to whether the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United and Co. step up their interest in him anytime soon.

As well as the Premier League trio, the same report from the Standard has also revealed that Spanish outfit Atletico Madrid are monitoring the player's situation in Italy. 

There's no doubt about it, Icardi looks set for a huge future in the game, so would prove quite the coup for any of the Premier League's top clubs.

Mourinho: I owe Remy 

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho, meanwhile, has sent a message to Loic Remy after the striker netted the club's winner against Hull City yesterday afternoon.

Remy, who struck the fifth and final goal in the proceedings at the KC Stadium, has endured a tricky time since moving to Stamford Bridge this past summer, with main man Diego Costa ahead of him in the Stamford Bridge pecking order.

And, as reported by the Daily Star, Mourinho has admitted that he owes the forward, as he told reporters: "[Remy] probably deserves more than what I give him.

"Sometimes, not many times, a coach can feel he owes something to a player. With Remy that is the case, I think I owe him something.

"Every time he plays he gives us a lot. I'm so happy for him because he deserves it. He never complains."

Chelsea not a winning machine 

Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini has insisted that rivals Chelsea are not a winning machine as the race for the Premier League title approaches its final stages. 

Pellegrini's side are currently six points behind the league leaders, but the Citizens boss has insisted that every team will drop points between now and the end of the season. 

As reported by ESPN, Pellegrini told reporters: "I don't think they are a winning machine all the time," he told reporters.

"I think you ask me maybe two or three weeks before I am sure from now until the end of the season every team will drop points so it's important to return to our normal performance and win our games.
