Argentina boss Jorge Sampaoli believes one of his national team players is tempted by the prospect of joining Real Madrid.

Real Linked With Last Minute €106m Move for Striker

Inter Milan striker Mauro Icardi has been linked with a move away from the San Siro at the end of this season and is reportedly being monitored closely by Los Blancos.

Sampaoli, who just concluded a European tour, told members of the media that he spoke with Icardi during his time in Italy and revealed that the 24-year-old is considering a move to Spain.

"It's a great problem to have with so many great strikers for the national side, and all are enjoying a great moment,” the Argentine boss said, as quoted AS.

"I spoke to Icardi and told him what I told everyone: don't stop working hard and, if you're still playing well, you will be selected.

"Icardi is being observed by, and seems keen on, Real Madrid."

Icardi has scored 18 goals in 24 appearances for Inter this season and is the second top scorer in Serie A, second only to Lazio's Ciro Immobile.
