‘New Ronaldo’ tipped to shine at Liverpool or Chelsea

Mauro Icardi’s former coach Jesus Hernandez has tipped the Argentine to succeed if he moves to England, with Liverpool and Chelsea interested in the Inter Milan ace.

The 21-year-old has widely been hailed as one of Serie A’s top performers of late, and was linked with a big move away from the San Siro over the summer.

Liverpool were rumoured to have been tracking him after the loss of Luis Suarez, while Chelsea’s scouts are thought to have been keeping tabs on him.

Icardi eventually opted to stay in Italy, but now reports suggest that new Inter boss Roberto Mancini has deemed the South American unneeded, and is ready to sell.

A £28m valuation was reported during the last window, yet it remains unclear as to whether or not the Rossoneri will dip their demands if their new boss bombs him out of his starting XI.

An energetic and bustling forward, Icardi has been compered to Suarez, but his old coach, Hernandez, believes he’s more like Cristiano Ronaldo, and that he’d be a success in England:

“If Icardi played in Spain or England, where he is likely to go, he would be a star.” He is quoted by The Express.

“He will become one. He has the talent to be the new Ronaldo. You’ll see.”
