Mauro Icardi at the double as Inter Milan beat Fiorentina

Inter Milan are hoping to return to former glories under Chinese owners and Mauro Icardi got them off to a strong start with a brace in their 3-0 home victory over Fiorentina.

The Argentina forward boosted Luciano Spalletti's Inter into an early lead from the penalty spot and turned Ivan Perisic's assist home in the 15th minute.

In the second half Perisic -- a reported target for Manchester United -- turned scorer to rubber-stamp the outcome.
