Icardi’s staff met with Inter today to discuss the future of the 23-year-old, following a refusal of a €60 million bid by Napoli.
According to Di Marzio, Inter have turned down a substantial offer from the Azzurri as they look to hold on to their star striker. Inter have expressed that they intend to offer the player a contract extension.
Although Inter want to provide their star with a contract renewal, they are unable to do so until they receive funds from the Suning group, who recently purchased the club for €307 million. The renewal offer is expected to come by October 1.
The Argentinian is currently earning €3.8 million with the club, but is expected to earn around €5 million, following the extension.
De Laurentiis says they have informed Napoli of this news and expect that the club will stop pursuing their prized possession.
Mauro Icardi joined Internazionale from Sampdoria in 2013 for a transfer fee of €13 million.
