Inter Milan turn down huge PSG bid for Mauro Icardi as Chelsea remain in hunt

Inter Milan have turned down a bid of £54m from Paris Saint-Germain for Mauro Icardi, leaving Chelsea in the race to sign the striker.

The 27-year-old is currently on loan at PSG from Inter and the French side want to keep hold of him after scoring 12 goals in 20 Ligue 1 matches and netting 20 times in total during his short stint with the club.

The Italian’s are open to selling him, but are holding out for an enormous asking price of £62.7m and are unwilling to budge, reports the Sky in Italy.

PSG’s offer was £44.7m up front and £8.9m in instalments based on Icardi’s future performances, but Inter were not interested, with the player under contract until 2022.

Chelsea are looking to add to their squad this summer, with Frank Lampard keen to expand his attacking options and a move for Icardi has been mooted.

Inter rejecting PSG’s advances keeps their hopes of signing him alive, but whether they are willing to splash over £60m on the striker in the current economic climate is yet to be seen.

The Argentina international has an impressive goal-scoring record at Inter, netting 111 times in 181 games for the Milanese club and was named captain in 2015 at just 22-years-old.

However, Antonio Conte made it very clear he did not see Icardi as a main man when he arrived as Inter manager, as he signed Romelu Lukaku and handed the new signing Icardi’s number 8 shirt.

Icardi has also been linked with moves to Manchester United and Arsenal in the past, but neither are likely to reignite their interest in him this summer.
