Argentina coach Sampaoli: I know Real Madrid watching Icardi

Argentina coach Jorge Sampaoli believes Real Madrid are serious about signing Inter Milan striker Mauro Icardi.

Sampaoli visited Icardi during a European tour this month.

He said: "It's a nice problem to have to have the riches of strikers in the team and when all of them are going through good moments.

"I spoke with Icardi and I told him what I told everyone: that if you keep focused, if he is going well, he will be called up.

"Icardi is being watched and almost tempted by Real Madrid."
