According to Piero Ausilo inter Milan have no intention to let the Argentine star go in the next transfer window after striping him off from captain’s role.
Inter desperate to hold on to Icardi.
Inter Sporting director said that Inter strip Icardi off from the captaincy for his own good and for the club but they are hoping to renew his contract to keep him with the club.
On this Wednesday the Nerazzurri confirmed that their shot stopper Samir Handanovic will be the new skipper of the club and he led Inter on their Europe league encounter against Rapid Vienna, and Icardi to excluded from the first leg of this match.
Inter head coach said Icardi withdrawn his name from the travelling group itself and it looks like he is going through some treatment for his injury.
After this decision Icardi’s future speculation got increased and his wife Wanda Nara suggested that there is some anger inside the club and and also said that he is not protected from some negative news.
Inter sporting director still thinks the decision what the Inter board has taken is the right decision for the club and for Icardi also and it has nothing to do with his contract extension.
The Inter sporting director stated: “A decision was made that everyone agreed with, and it was a painful one to make,”
“The reasons are serious and valid; there’s nothing to explain.
“Mauro remains important to us. He still has a lot to give to Inter. We are not questioning him as a professional or as a striker, which is why I hope he stays with us for a long time yet. ‘Us’ is the key word here and must always prevail for the good of the club and the changing room.
“We have taken measures – and it’s the last thing we would have wanted to do – after letting something slide in the past. It might seem like a step backwards, but in terms of the future it’s 10 steps forward.
“We’ll speak with Icardi, although it’s not right to speak of talks to clear the air because he’s never been put in discussion and he’s a great player. If he likes, we’ll set conditions to follow.
“Contract discussions have in no way been affected by these events – it’s a totally different subject.”
