Inter Milan move to increase release clause in Mauro Icardi's contract after crazy summer transfer market

Inter Milan are set to offer Mauro Icardi a new contract, with his current release clause of £100m seen as too low in the current market.

The striker only signed a new deal with the San Siro giants in October last year, with the release clause valid only for foreign clubs.

However, this summer featured Paris Saint-Germain paying £200m for Neymar, and taking out a loan with an obligation to buy at £160m on Kylian Mbappe.

Ousmane Dembele joined Barcelona for a fee believed to be £100m plus £35m in add-ons, meaning the £100m clause in Icardi's current contract now suddenly is no longer the deterrent Inter had hoped.

Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United are among an array of clubs that have been credited with an interest in Icardi.

According to Premium Sport, the Italian giants are preparing to offer a new deal, and will contact the Argentina international's wife and agent, Wanda.

They are looking to raise the release clause to £190m or more, but will also have to bump up Icardi's £4.2m per season wages.
