Icardi indebted to Inter

Mauro Icardi says he feels indebted to Inter, who have ‘given me so much and let me grow as a person and player’.

Icardi has remained loyal to Inter since arriving from Sampdoria five years ago, and the striker reiterated the Nerazzurri were the only club for him.

“San Siro in a word... spectacular,” he told Inter TV.

“I like it when the fans sing [Pazza Inter] Amala. All my children sing it and have it on their iPods, plus Francesca and Isabella have learned it through the phone.

“Playing there is always beautiful and even more so with all our fans. Inter have given me so much, they’ve let me grow as a person and player.

“I arrived when I was 20 years old and can only thank Milan and Inter for the life I have.”

However, the Beneamata captain confessed Milan was not his favourite city for one specific reason.

“[It’s] Barcelona, if Milan had the sea… that’s what it lacks,” he admitted.

“Where I’d like to visit? Tokyo is very beautiful, [Yuto] Nagatomo told me about it.”
