Inter confident of Icardi renewal

Inter supremos Steven Zhang and Beppe Marotta say the fans can ‘rest assured’ that Mauro Icardi will sign a new contract.

The stand-off between Icardi’s agent-wife and Inter appeared to be getting out of hand, amidst reports the striker would not renew his contractand Wanda Nara affirming the two parties were ‘very far apart’.

That was followed by the striker making it clear his loyalties lay with Nara, but Zhang and Marotta insist there is no reason for supporters to worry about losing their captain.

“Training is going well, we’re improving our physical condition,” the President [pictured, left] told

“The market? If there are opportunities, our directors will be able to find the best talent.

“Everything’s good [with Icardi] at the moment. It’s normal for newspapers to talk during this period of negotiations.

“Icardi is our captain and we’ll talk about his contract, but there aren’t any problems between us and we won’t be influenced by what the newspapers say.

“We'll definitely talk to him, he’s a true professional. The January market doesn’t present great opportunities but if there are any, we’ll take them.

CEO Marotta added to the website: “Can I reassure fans about Icardi’s renewal? Absolutely, the fans can rest assured.”
