According to Il Giornale, as reported by Sempreinter, the Inter duo of Ausilio and Marotta met with officials from the Los Blancos to discuss the potential sales of Lucas Vazquez and Marco Asensio, both of whom have been linked with a move away from the Bernabeu in the summer.

It has been understood that Icardi's name popped up during the talks, with the new manager Antonio Conte keen to sell him in the summer as he does not see him being a part of his plans as he looks to take the club forward.
The Argentinian recently confirmed that he wants to stay at the San Siro for the foreseeable future and would only move if forced by the club amid reports that rivals Juventus are keen to secure his services.
The 26-year-old had a falling out with the club last season and while he was reintegrated into the squad, Conte is not keen to hold on to him which comes as a surprise considering that he has without a doubt been their best player over the past three years or so.
