Inter Milan star Mauro Icardi has said that he will not renew his contract with the club until he receives a ‘correct’ offer.
The Argentine’s current deal is set to expire in the summer of 2021 and the Italian giants have reportedly opened talks about extending his stay at the San Siro. However, the 25-year-old told on Instagram that any news of an imminent new deal are false, and instead he will only renew when he receives an offer that he deems acceptable.
Icardi wrote: “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. Only after that can we talk about my renewal with truth, while putting aside the lies that have been spread.”
Since joining from Sampdoria in 2013, Icardi has gone on to score 120 goals in only 204 appearances. Premier League outfit Chelsea are one of the favourites to swoop for the Argentine international during the January transfer window. The Blues can be backed at 9/2 with Paddy Power to be Icardi’s employers following the closure of the January transfer window.
