Real have not had a particularly smooth season and people will be betting on whether they can get their season back on track and challenge arch-rivals Barcelona. They were bundled out of the Copa Del Rey and will be facing PSG in the Champions League. Bookies will be monitoring their progress in this crucial matchup.
Icardi was in sublime form for the Inter Milan this season. His resume includes 18 goals and several assists in 22 league appearances. His form was enough to garner some interest from the Spanish capital club. Sources say that, Real wish to secure Icardi’s services to solidify their strike force after the end of the 2017/18 season. The plan is to use the Argentine international in place of Karim Benzema as the club’s main striker. Benzema on the other hand has a €110m (£96.7m, $134.8m) buyout clause.
Ronaldo made his Inter debut in 1997 after leaving Barcelona. Five seasons later, he moved to Barcelona’s rivals Real Madrid in 2002. Coming back to the subject of Mauro Icardi, Ronaldo has said that he clueless about the workings of the transfer market”.
He said, “I’m sure that Icardi is doing well and is happy at Inter. I remember my time at Inter well, although it’s true I suffered a lot of injuries and things didn’t end up how I’d have liked. I’ve heard all the rumours about Icardi and Real Madrid, although I don’t know that well how things are going on the market. I can only say that playing for Real Madrid is a dream for any player.”
Ronaldo had previously urged Real to sign his compatriot and PSG star Neymar. He has even backed the forward to win the Ballon d’Or in the future.
Meanwhile, Inter manager Jorge Sampaoli said that Icardi is tempted to join the Champions League winners. Sampaoli also confirmed that Real are keeping a close eye on the striker. He said, “I know he was close to joining Real Madrid and I know he is tempted to join them now. Real Madrid are monitoring him.”
