Inter announced they have bought out the remaining 50 per cent of Mauro Icardi’s contract from Sampdoria.
The striker had joined on a co-ownership deal last summer and scored nine goals in 22 Serie A games for the Nerazzurri.
This afternoon Inter released a statement confirming the two clubs “reached an agreement to terminate their co-ownership of the striker, who is now fully owned by Inter.”
Icardi hit the headlines for other reasons too this season, above all the controversy over his relationship with the estranged wife of his former Sampdoria teammate and friend Maxi Lopez.
The 21-year-old married Wanda Nara last month.
