Argentine attacker wants to extend stay at San Siro

Inter Milan striker Mauro Icardi has turned down the chance to join the Premier League giants Manchester United in the summer in favour of staying with the Nerazzurri.

The Red Devils were heavily linked with a move for the Argentine attacker during the summer transfer window but will now have to look out for another summer targets after the 22-year-old forward committed his future to the Italian outfit.

Icardi, who scored 10 goals in 21 league games this season, is reportedly valued to be around £35m, insists that he remains committed to Inter Milan under Roberto Mancini.

“Wolfsburg and Manchester United? I heard something about their interest, but I want to stay with Inter,” Icardi said, as quoted by talkSPORT.

“Even if United sign Jose Mourinho, my answer is always the same: I’m staying here. If they come looking, they won’t be the first nor the last club I may turn down.”

“I’m happy in Milan and I don’t mean to leave. The club has a great project and is investing heavily to get winning again. I want to help.”

Inter are currently find themselves two points behind third placed AS Roma with 14 matches left until the end of the season.
