Premier League duo Manchester United and Chelsea have been dealt a huge transfer blow as Inter Milan confirm they won't do business for Mauro Icardi, even if a £30 million offer is made.

The Argentine striker has been strongly linked with a move away from the San Siro at the end of the season, but according to the club's sporting director, they are not planning on doing any business involving the 22-year-old.

Impressive Season

Icardi has scored 14 goals in 24 Serie A appearances so far this season and has been monitored by Chelsea since last summer, with Manchester United newly-interested after Radamel Falcao's flop in the Premier League.

Despite recently admitting he's flattered to be linked with moves to clubs like Manchester United and Chelsea, Icardi is reportedly happy to stay in Italy and is happy to work under Roberto Mancini, who plans to build his team around the Argentine next season.

Inter recently added to their attacking options by securing Lukas Podolski and Xherden Shaqiri on loan until the end of the season, but it's believed neither of them will stay on permanently.

As for Manchester United and Chelsea, both will be looking for new strikers in the Summer market, with Falcao set to leave Old Trafford after a disappointing loan-spell, and Didier Drogba widely reported to leave the club at the end of his contract.

However, both clubs have been warned off the Icardi race by Piero Ausilio, who has told sources that the club don't plan on entering business with anyone at the end of the season.

Hands Off

Ausilio told Sky Sports Italia: "What if someone bids €40m (£30m) for him in the summer?

"Well we've got no intention of doing business, we're thinking of the present and future of this football club with Icardi. Our intentions are clear. We're building a team to last for a long time with very talented, young players.

"As well as Mateo Kovacic and Icardi, we've added more quality players such as Marcelo Brozovic and Xherdan Shaqiri and we want to continue in this vein."
