Insurance claim reveals Inter’s latest signing?

Reports out of Italy are suggesting that Inter have finalized a deal for Sampdoria’s young striker Mauro Icardi.

The Nerazzurri have been linked with the Argentine striker for quite some time, with the most recent reports suggesting that a deal is all but done for €13 million.

Sportmediaset are reporting that the Nerazzurri have locked up the former Barcelona youth product after it was revealed the club have filed an insurance claim in Icardi’s name with Lloyd’s in London, one of the world’s most famous insurance services.

The Nerazzurri want some sort of coverage if Icardi were to injure himself between now and the summer transfer, and thus protecting themselves if he were unable to start next season with the club.

While the deal has not been made official, the fact that the Nerazzurri have looked into protecting their newest asset means that the heir to Diego Milito’s throne is closer than ever to securing a move the Beneamata.
