A Sampdoria official has dismissed the notion that a deal has been done with Inter which will see Mauro Icardi head to San Siro.
However, Doria director Rinaldo Sagramola has told the Gazzetta Giallorossa website that the stories are somewhat premature.
“I deny the reports,” Sagramola noted. “These voices of an Inter sale are not true. Inter have told us that they are interested, but there is some way to go before saying that we’ve sold him.
“It would also be against Federation rules seeing that the player is still under contract with us,” he continued.
“We’re actually waiting for the boy to respond to our offer to extend his contract.”
The official also said he was unaware of any interest from Roma for the 19-year-old forward.
