Inter are looking to remove the clause in Mauro Icardi’s contract, reports suggest, but they’d have to significantly boost his wages.
The striker has a €90m release clause which is valid in July, and there have been fears that Real Madrid or another club could pay it this summer.
As a result the Nerazzurri have been looking to tie him to a new deal, and this morning’s Corriere dello Sport has some details of the negotiation.
They are offering to increase Icardi’s salary by almost €2m, from €4.7m per season to €6.5m, along with a lucrative set of bonuses linked to team and individual achievements.
In exchange, the Beneamata would liked to remove the release clause from his contract altogether.
Icardi’s entourage, headed by his wife and agent Wanda, are asking for a salary of €7m, and want to keep the clause but raise it to €150-200m.
If they were to remove the clause entirely, Inter would have to pay Icardi €8m per season.
