Argentina international is reportedly prepared to snub advances from Chelsea and Manchester United in order to stay put in the Serie A next season.

The marksman has recently been dropped from first-team duties at Inter Milan after his reluctance to pen a new contract, and it now appears likely that he could be sold at the end of the season.

According to Corriere dello Sport, the striker has the opportunity to pursue a big-money move elsewher with Chelsea, Real Madrid and United highlighted as probable destinations.

However, the former Sampdoria man is not keen on leaving the Serie A in the near future and this has put the likes of Napoli and Juventus in the frontline to sign him during the summer.

Icardi had been stripped from the captaincy earlier this month and of late, manager Luciano Spalletti has suggested that a knee problem has kept the striker away from first-team action for the Nerazzurri.
