Mauro Icardi is unstoppable. He’s managed to score 29 league goals last season, and this year he’s already netted 10 times in 13 matches only. He’s getting more and more reliable and this might be the right time for him to make a move to one of the best clubs in Europe. A lot of great teams would like to have the 25 years old striker, including Real Madrid, Chelsea and Barcelona.
It’s time to replace Benzema at Real Madrid
Benzema has been playing for Real Madrid for almost a decade now, but his numbers are seem to get worse year by year. While he’s never been a man of goals – he’s only managed to reach 20 league goals twice in Spain – he’s only scored 5 La Liga goals last season, which is embarrassing. As Ronaldo and Zidane have left, Florentino Perez is expected to strengthen Real Madrid. Papers argue that they have more than 300 million euros to spend, and one of their possible targets is Mauro Icardi. The odds on the Argentine striker to leave Italy for the Blancos this winter are 13.00 at BetVictor Sportsbook.
Bookies believe Icardi will sign for Chelsea
Online sportsbook sites in Argentina are convinced about Icardi’s next destination. They argue that the favorites to sign Icardi are Chelsea, the odds are 5.00 on the transfer to happen this winter. Meanwhile, papers started to talk about a bid worth 100 million euros coming from London. The offer makes sense, especially if we look at the strikers of the Blues: neither Morata nor Giroud seem to be the best long-term solution. Sarri has seen Icardi in Italy, he knows his abilities, and he’d probably love to have him during such an exciting title-race.
It makes sense to bet on Mauro Icardi to replace Suarez at Barcelona
“Now, when they say Barcelona need a new No. 9, there’s nothing strange about it. Obviously, they have to bring players in. I am 31 and Barca have to think, as a club, about the future.”
These are the words of Barcelona striker Luis Suarez. The forward is definitely not getting any younger, and his team is reportedly looking for his replacement. Icardi could be their target as the Argentine striker is familiar with the Catalan club. He was playing for Barcelona’s youth team at La Masia for 3 years before starting his professional career in Italy. The odds are 7.00 on his return to Barca at BetVictor Sportsbook.
Other Premier League clubs are interested as well
Man City also could be a possible destination for Icardi. As Football Leakes revealed a few days ago, UEFA officials are in the pockets of the super rich club owners. There are no rules for the Blues anymore, and if they want to offer a bunch of money for Icardi, they can do that without any consequences. The odds are 9.00 on Sheikh Mansour to buy the Argentine striker just for fun. You can also bet on Tottenham to sign Icardi, but let’s be real here, this deal could only happen when hell freezes over, or at least when they sell Harry Kane. The odds on Icardi signing for Spurs this winter are 26.00.
