Blues boss demanding move for Serie A sensation.
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho wants his board to back him in a move to sign Inter Milan youngster Mauro Icardi this summer, according to the Daily Mail.
The 22-year-old Argentine has been in superb form in Italy this season, scoring 16 goals in all competitions to attract interest from the likes of Liverpool and Manchester United.
Icarid looks a world class talent in the making, and Mourinho is desperate to win the race for his signature ahead of some stiff competition.
The prolific striker has recently been in talks over a new contract at the San Siro which could include a buy-out clause of around £29m.
