Inter set €100m Icardi clause

Reports are growing that Mauro Icardi will sign an Inter contract extension with a €100m release clause.

The striker had been the subject of offers around €60m from Napoli, Arsenal, Atletico Madrid and Chelsea this summer, while Juventus were also interested.

According to multiple sources, including Sky Sport Italia and La Gazzetta dello Sport, a decision has been made to extend his contract to June 2021.

Icardi is set to earn in the region of €5m per year.

The big difference will be the introduction of a release clause, allowing the striker to leave if a club pays the right price.

It was reported earlier this morning that the sum would be between €80m and €100m.

Now Sky Sport Italia and others suggest the final figure will be €100m – almost a world transfer record.
