Mauro Icardi insisted he will only sign a new contract with Inter Milan once they “submit a correct and concrete offer”
Mauro Icardi’s contract does not expire until 2021 but he has been linked with a move to Real Madrid and Chelsea after his agent and wife Wanda Nara reiterated the Argentina international is nowhere near a renewal.
LaLiga champions Barcelona and Ligue 1 holders Paris Saint-Germain are also believed to be among the suitors for Icardi, who used social media to address the speculation.
“I want to clarify to all the fans who read pseudo-journalists and ‘serious’ newspapers, who write without knowing and having a real idea of the facts, that my renewal will only take place when Inter submit a correct and concrete offer,” Icardi wrote in a message posted on Instagram.
Icardi, who has scored nine Serie A goals this season, also leapt to the defence of Nara after reports emerged that Inter could ask the 25-year-old to change agents.
He tweeted: “Where do these phrases come from? How is it possible that Gazzetta dello Sport writes this rubbish?
“Furthermore, I’d like to point out that I am very, very happy and satisfied with the work we’ve done so far. For this reason, it’ll always be Wanda Icardi who takes care of my and our interests until the end of my career.”
