Jose Mourinho ready to meet £97m release clause of Argentine hitman

Manchester United are reportedly willing to activate Mauro Icardi’s £97m release clause to bring him to Old Trafford.

The Argentine forward, who has netted 18 times in 22 Serie A outings for Inter Milan this season, is also being tracked by Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid according to Corriere dello Sport.

The source adds that Icardi could be tempted to move away from San Siro should Inter fail to qualify for the Champions League, while any potential deal would be straightforward due to the 25-year-old’s release clause.

Icardi, who joined Inter in April 2013 after signing his first senior contract in 2011 with Sampdoria, has also appeared four times for his national team.

The forward has netted a total of 44 goals since the start of last season, with Inter currently fourth in the Serie A standings.
