Madrid push for Icardi

Real Madrid are reportedly still pushing for Mauro Icardi, but the Inter striker notes “you are the master of your own destiny”.

Los Merengues have been heavily linked with the striker, who has a €110m release clause which becomes active in the summer.

While the Nerazzurri are keen to offer a new contract with a higher wage and higher release clause, Corriere dello Sport believes the Spanish giants are very keen to bring him to La Liga.

In the current climate, his €110m clause doesn’t represent a huge deterrent, and Madrid want a ‘Galactico’ signing in the summer after falling 19 points behind Barcelona in the title race.

The Beneamata will meet with Icardi and his agent, wife Wanda, next month to try and tie him to a new deal.

Following the publication of these reports, the striker has taken to Instagram and posted a picture of himself in his Inter tracksuit with the caption “Never forget that you are the architect of your own destiny”.
