Spanish La Liga title holders Real Madrid are said to be pushing through a last-ditch attempt to lay their hands on Inter Milan captain Mauro Icardi.
Los Blancos are going through a tough time this season domestically and are currently sitting in fourth, huge 19 points behind leaders Barcelona.
Zinedine Zidane is facing plenty of pressure from the Real Madrid top-office during the season which saw Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema as club’s main choices in attack fail to produce expected level of performances.
Florentino Perez has been rather unhappy with his club’s lacklustre appearances and is said to have sanctioned a big-money bid for long-term target Mauro Icardi.
The 24-year-old Argentine is in love with his club Inter Milan but his head has still been turned by the prospect of playing for Real Madrid, according to reports coming from Diario As.
Inter Milan are keen to keep hold of their in-form striker and are said to be preparing a new contract for Icardi with a release clause in excess of €130 million.
