The agent of Mauro Icardi has told chasing Chelsea that the striker wants to stay at Inter Milan.
Icardi has been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons over the past few months with many reports suggesting that he would be leaving at the end of the season after failing to agree a new contract after months of talks with the Italian giants.
And that has led to speculation that we are ready to swoop in and offer him a move to the Premier League, with the Blues reportedly ready to pay the £92 million release clause in his contract as they need a more long-term solution to the aging Gonzalo Higuaín.
However, with the coub facing a transfer ban over the next few transfer window, they have now been told that Icardi does not want to leave Inter and in fact wants to sign a new contract with the club.
“We saw the game from home, with the family, of course, we also wanted to avoid any kind of controversy.” Wanda Nara said on the Calciomercato website.
“I would not say anything that could be misinterpreted. But I can say that it was a positive week, because I wanted to stay at Inter.
“I’m a fan of Inter and I’m reading about the field. , with tears and commitment, I hope this media situation is solved I repeat: Mauro wants to stay and wants to continue his career at Inter.
Meanwhile, new Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane will allow Mateo Kovacic to sign on a permanent basis at the end of the season.
After months of speculation in the media, we finally managed to secure a try-before-they deal for the Croatian midfielder, who reportedly turned down a number of top clubs to test himself in the Premier League and under the guidance of Maurizio Sarri.
However, he is all set to return to Madrid at the end of the season as we are questioning whether or not to hand Kovacic a long-term deal, despite the fact that he has become a big part of Sarri’s plans.
But according to reports on Sport Mediaset, the appointment of Zidane at Madrid will allow the club to seal a deal for Kovacic if they wish, as the 25-year old midfielder will not be part of the revolution next season.
