Mauro Icardi’s medical at Real Madrid deniedJanuary 9, 2018
Mauro Icardi’s representatives have denied that the Inter Milan striker had a medical with Real Madrid.
Diario Gol reported that the Argentine striker met with Madrid officials and underwent a medical in Milan ahead of a proposed move this month.
Icardi has a €110m release clause featured in his current contract, but that amount is expected to raise come the summer months due to a clause in his current contract.
Madrid, who have relied heavily on the likes of Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo this season, are keen to improve their attacking options after the duo scored just seven league goals.
The Nerezurri captain has been in good form this season, scoring 18 goals in 22 appearances, but a reported medical has now been denied with further reports stating Inter are unwilling to negotiate a potential deal this season.
Goal Italia has contacted Icardi’s representatives for a comment on the matter, and they have dismissed any truth in the matter.
Icardi, who joined Inter in 2013 from Sampdoria has spent time on Spanish soil before with Barcelona during his youth career.
Developing with the Catalan side for three years between 2008 and 2011, the striker was shipped out to Italy, where he has since made 145 Serie A appearances.
