Inter Milan have declared their stance that striker Mauro Icardi is not for sale.
Icardi, 22, has scored 14 goals in 25 league appearances drawing the attention of English giants Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United and Liverpool.
In a recent interview, Inter’s sporting director, Piero Ausilio, discussed the future of the Argentine international and revealed the club had ‘no intention’ of selling the coveted forward.
He told Sky Italia: “What if someone bids €40m (£30m) for him in the summer?
“Well we’ve got no intention of doing business, we’re thinking of the present and future of this football club with Icardi.
“Our intentions are clear. We’re building a team to last for a long time with very talented, young players.
“As well as Mateo Kovacic and Icardi, we’ve added more quality players such as Marcelo Brozovic and Xherdan Shaqiri and we want to continue in this vein.”
