The Argentine has been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge but his stunning wife and agent Wanda Nara has recently hinted at a contract extension with the Italian giants.
Icardi, who reportedly has a £98million release clause in his contract, has attracted attention from Europe's biggest clubs – including Chelsea and Real Madrid.
The Blues were handed a boost in their pursuit of the striker when Uefa threatened to punish Inter with a Financial Fair Play sanctions following the club's financial problems.
The 25-year-old Argentine has been in sublime form this season, netting 13 times for his club including a sensational strike against Tottenham in the Champions League.
And Chelsea fans were electrified when Icardi shared on social media he was travelling to the UK.
He posted a picture on Monday morning as he was boarding a private jet and wrote: "On my way to London."
Chelsea fans got their hopes high and were quick to react on social media.
One, @ar19un92, wrote: "Hijack flight and bring him to Stamford bridge."
Another, @FanaticBlue, said: "There is a certain club there in London that needs a world class striker like you Mauro."
While @joseph_scamp added: "Come to Chelsea, Hazard needs someone who can stay onside."
However, Icardi's wife and agent seems to have dashed the fans' hopes.
Wanda, who has said his husband is as good as Cristiano Ronaldo, has recently hinted the striker is about to sign a new contract with Inter.
She wrote on Twitter: "It 00:30 at night and I am reading the pages of the contract renewal."
The striker will reportedly commit his future to the Italian giants until 2021 and receive a hefty salary boost.
It would be a massive blow to Chelsea fans who grow increasingly frustrated with their No.1 striker Alvaro Morata.
