Fire power: Icardi is on the radar of Manchester United

Upon learning that Tottenham are preparing a club-record £37.8million swoop for Inter Milan striker Mauro Icardi, Spurs fans couldn’t contain their excitement on Twitter.

The Nerazzuri captain has been linked with all of Europe’s heavyweights this summer but Mauricio Pochettino is willing to throw a big chunk of his transfer budget on his fellow countryman.

Sky Italy journalist Gianluca Di Marzio claims on his website that Spurs have sent representatives to Milan to meet with Icardi’s agent.

The 23-year-old was Inter’s top scorer this season, finding the back of the net 16 times in 33 Serie A games.

Some fans were impressed with the ambition that Pochettino and chairman Daniel Levy are showing, although a section of the club’s support are more sceptical.
