Real Madrid set eyes on Icardi for January transfer window


As the winter transfer window approaches, Real Madrid are considering reinforcing their frontline and Inter star Mauro Icardi tops the list of the forwards who have attracted Los Blancos’ interest.

The Argentine striker has already scored 15 goals in 14 matches this season for the Italian team, who have set his price tag at 100 million euros.

The Milan club want to renew the player’s contract until 2023, offering him 7m euros per year, but Real continue to keep a close eye on him.

The Spanish club, however, acknowledge that during the upcoming transfer market it will be hard to find a player that will make the difference, and they would prefer to avoid mistakes made in the past.


Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez is also on the club’s radar, although the player prefers a reunion with his former coach Pep Guardiola at Manchester City.

Moreover, Timo Werner and Fyodor Smolov are also included on Real Madrid’s wish list and have been thoroughly assessed by the club.

Real’s underwhelming first stretch of the season has brought unease to the club administration, who have decided to re-assess the current squad after the derby against Barcelona and figure out their next steps during the winter market.
