Inter Milan forward Mauro Icardi has spoken about his future following weeks of news linking him to Real Madrid next season.
Icardi, happy in Milan
"If I receive a phone call from Real Madrid, I won't answer", the Argentine player told Sky Sports after Saturday's 1-3 win over Cagliari in which he hit a brace, making Inter overnight leaders in Serie A. "You know what I think. There's nothing to say", he answered when quizzed about his buy-out clause.
Inter coach Luciano Spalletti echoed Icardi's words when he spoke to Rai Sport: "I work with him every day and I get the impression he loves being with this team, and with his team mates. He lives really well in Milan, the fans love him, so I'm in no doubt that he'll stay here. He wants to sign a new contract with Inter and stay with us. If anyone asks him how long he would like to stay here, he'll tell them until the end of the playing career".
