Liverpool and Chelsea will go head-to-head over the signing of Mauro Icardi…
Inter Milan star Mauro Icardi has been tipped to join either Liverpool or Chelsea in a sensational £28m move. The player, who has been dubbed the ‘new Ronaldo’, is thought to be available from next summer.
Reports in the Daily Express claim that the 21-year-old was backed to move to England over the summer, but rejected offers from the duo to stay in Serie A.
However, reports in Italy claim that Icardi is surprisingly not part of new manager Roberto Mancini’s plans, and that the striker could yet make the move to the Premier League.
Former coach Jesus Hernandez tipped Icardi to shine in England should he link up with either Brendan Rodgers or Jose Mourinho.
Hernandez said: “If Icardi played in Spain or England, where he is likely to go, he would be a star. “He will become one. He has the talent to be the new Ronaldo. You’ll see.”
