How Madrid decision will help Chelsea summer business

Timothy Aiyeku



Mauro Icardi

The decision by Spanish La Liga outfit Real Madrid to step down from their pursuit of Italian Serie A outfit Inter Milan star player Mauro Icardi seem to be in the advantage of English Premier League outfit Chelsea.

Mauro Icardi has been on the radar of the West London outfit over the last months and was expected to join the Stamford Bridge in the last January winter transfer window but he rejected the move with the hope that he would be moving to the Spanish side.

Real Madrid were initially reported to be keen on the star striker but they have now dropped from the race which gives Chelsea the hope to now return for a bid for the star player.

The West London outfit will be more positive this time around knowing that Mauro Icardi is now unsettled at the club and will likely seek a move away in the coming summer window.

Mauro Icardi was stripped of the captaincy by the San Siro outfit which made him drop from the first team as a result of an ongoing contract issue he has with the club.

However, the Blues are expected to make a move for Mauro Icardi but there could be a disagreement in the personal terms for the player.
