Icardi has spent six seasons for Inter, where he is under contract until June 2022. Nara paid tribute to the Serie A giants, saying he decided to join PSG as to not betray Inter. "I have wonderful memories of San Siro and the Interisti. And as I always say, the real heartfelt Interisti know that we have always been on the team's side," she said. "And this choice to go to Paris was also made so as not to betray the Nerazzurri. We left each other without betrayal, Mauro went to a club that he couldn't say no to and even for Inter it went well."
