Fund offers €20m for Icardi?

There are reports an English and Qatari fund has offered €20m to sign Inter striker Mauro Icardi.

According to Tuttosport, the 21-year-old Argentine has caught the eye of a group of investors who want to put him on the market.

This type of ownership is commonplace in South America, though has caused controversy in Europe.

It is believed Icardi’s ultimate destination would be Atletico Madrid, but with part of his contract still owned by the fund.

Inter President Erick Thohir is said to be considering the deal, as it would give the club valuable funds to then plough into a summer signing such as Edin Dzeko or Alvaro Morata.

Icardi suffered from numerous groin problems this season and hit the headlines more for his private life than his on the field performances.

The former Sampdoria forward has scored three Serie A goals in 13 appearances this season.
