Inter Milan have reportedly put contract talks with Mauro Icardi and Milan Skriniar on hold, alerting Chelsea to a possible transfer deal.

Speculation the media over the past few weeks have all suggested boss Maurisio Sarri will be given funds to try and complete deals for both Skriniar and Icardi in the January transfer window, as he looks to improve key areas of the pitch for us.

With Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud failing to lead the line and score the goals Sarri needs, he has been eyeing up a £90 million deal for Icardi, who netted an impressive 29-goals for Milan last season and already has nine to his name in Serie A this season.

And with David Luiz showing just how poor he is against Tottenham at the weekend, Skriniar is another name that has been top of the shopping list of the Italian as reports suggest he needs a world class defender to be serious contenders for the Premier League title this season.

Now, according to Calciomercato, Milan have decided to stop all contract talks with both Skriniar and Icardi as they believe they are spending far too much money on wages, as they look to try and cut those costs.

The report goes on to say Inter spends 4.1 million euros a year on salaries, a figure that has gone up since the acquisitions of Radja Nainggolan, Kwadwo Asamoah and Stefan de Vrij.

Could we seriously complete a £165 million deal for both Icardi and Skriniar?

Both men are world class and are just the type of players that would come in and make an immediate impact on the squad, which is perfect, as that is what top clubs need when they splash out on big named players.

The asking fees of both players are a bit step, as they both have more to prove in the game but at the end of the day, if we want to compete with Manchester City, then we need to sign players of this quality.
