Inter star alerts Premier League giants with quit threat if Roberto Mancini stays

Inter striker Mauro Icardi will reportedly push for a move away from the club in the summer if coach Roberto Mancini stays.

The Argentine ace has come under heavy criticism this season for his lack of goals, while Mancini has also scrutinised his performances with the media.

In turn, it has led to a tense relationship between the pair as the Inter boss left his captain out of the Derby della Madonnina against AC Milan on Sunday night.

The Nerazzurri went on to fall to a 3-0 defeat to their city rivals, which in turn sent them deeper into a crisis as they continue to fall off the Scudetto pace and are now at threat of missing out on the Champions League altogether.

According to Tuttosport, as reported by Football Italia, the tension between Mancini and Icardi has reached breaking point and one of the pair is expected to leave the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza in the summer.

With reports suggesting that Inter were ready to sell the 22-year-old for €25m prior to the January transfer window deadline, a number of Premier League sides who have previously held an interest, including the likes of Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United as noted by The Daily Star, will certainly be alerted by the latest updates.

With all three sides short of goals for the most part this season, their respective coaches will be hopeful of adding more firepower up front in the summer. However, while Jurgen Klopp will be safe in his job, it remains to be seen who Chelsea appoint and whether or not Louis van Gaal continues in his role next season before bids will be made for Icardi.
