Mauro Icardi’s entourage have categorically denied the Inter striker took a medical with Real Madrid, as has been claimed in Spain.
Diario Gol claimed that the Nerazzurri captain took a secret medical in Milan, and is ready to join Los Merengues this month.
There is a €110m release clause in Icardi’s contract, but that’s only valid in the summer so he’d cost more this month.
Now Goal Italia has contacted Icardi’s representatives, who have utterly dismissed the story, with the website going as far as to call it “fake news”.
The Beneamata have no intention of selling their star man, and in fact would like to offer him a new contract with a higher release clause.
For his part, Icardi has always said publicly that he wants to stay with Inter.
