‘Doubt We’d Get Him’ – Fans Pessimistic About Chelsea’s Chances Of Signing Star Striker With £95.5m Release Clause

Chelsea are one of four clubs who are circling Inter Milan striker Mauro Icardi, according to reports in Italy.

There has been intense speculation in recent days that the Argentinian international could leave the San Siro after being stripped of the captaincy.

Along with the Blues, Real Madrid, Napoli and Juventus are all said to be keeping a close eye on the player’s situation.

Fans on Twitter are not particularly confident that Chelsea will be able to sign Icardi:

Some were more optimistic:

The 26-year-old is no doubt an excellent goalscorer. His 122 goals in 210 games for Inter demonstrates his lethal finishing in front of goal.

Icardi’s reported €110m (£95.5m) release clause would also tempt a few clubs but his off the field problems may put off some potential suitors.

His wife and agent Wanda Nara is notoriously hard to negotiate with, and the player’s own character has also been questioned by manager Luciano Spalletti.

Adding him to a dressing room at Chelsea full of different personalities would certainly be a risk.
