Real Madrid are reportedly ready to make an approach for Inter Milan forward Mauro Icardi as the European champions look to replace Cristiano Ronaldo.

Real Madrid have reportedly identified Inter Milan forward Mauro Icardi as a potential summer target.

The European champions have just allowed Cristiano Ronaldo to sign for Juventus, and it has resulted in the need for a high-profile replacement before the start of the new campaign.

Chelsea winger Eden Hazard has been heavily linked with a switch to the Bernabeu, but according to Marca, Real are considering a move for Icardi.

The 25-year-old has spent his entire professional career in Italy, with a combined total of 110 goals being scored for Inter and Sampdoria in 190 Serie A appearances.

Twenty-nine of those strikes came during the most recent campaign, and it could lead to the La Liga giants making a big-money offer in the coming weeks.

Real president Florentino Perez has claimed that the club will make some "incredible" signings before the new season.
