Argentinian striker Mauro Icardi might be Inter Milan’s best player but his off-the-field antics have pushed him towards the exit from the Seria A giants. And although Inter would happily sell Icardi this summer, it seems like the 26-year-old isn’t ready for a change of scenery just yet.

Icardi’s wife and agent Wanda Nara recently spoke with TyC Sports about her the possibility of him leaving the club, and said that he aims to stick with Inter “for at least another year.”

“He has one-and-a-half years left on his contract and his intention is to continue at Inter for at least another year,” – said Nara.

The thing that might spoil Mauro Icardi’s plans is the arrival of new coach Antonio Conte. Reportedly, Conte isn’t a fan of Icardi and has already told the club to sell the player in order to collect funds for his preferred targets.

Icardi is considered one of the most talented young strikers in the world and has mostly justified the tag by scoring 111 goals in 188 appearances for Inter Milan during his six years with the team. Still, this season he wasn’t at his best as he battled with injuries and off-the-field issues which limited him to 19 goals in 42 matches.

Several teams are rumored to be interested in Icardi’s services, including Inter’s Seria A rivals Juventus as well as La Liga’s Atletico Madrid and Premier League giants Manchester United.
