Serie A giants Inter Milan are set to renew contract talks next week, in an attempt to hand Mauro Icardi a new contract soon.

Icardi has become one of the world's best strikers over the last seasons and that hasn't saved him from not attracting attention from powerhouse clubs across Europe. Both Chelsea and Real Madrid have been linked with moves to sign the Argentine.

Gazzetta dello Sport state that Inter are set to reopen talks about handing Icardi a new contract next week, some days after the striker and his wife-agent Wanda Nara had rejected their first contract offer.

While the issue has turned into a public spat of late, there is still intent on both sides of the argument that they want to commit to a new deal for the striker soon.

The first contract offer was for about 6 million euros a season, but because of Icardi's higher demands, it was rejected. The player and his agent want a wage of 8 million euros or more to be paid.

It is likely that the next offer will be for about 7 million euros a season. But that isn't the only vital thing in the deal. Nara wants a bigger release clause in the new deal, but Inter want to eliminate any release clause that is there in it.
