Icardi signs new Inter contract

The 22-year-old, who finished as joint-top scorer in Serie A this season, has ended speculation over his future by agreeing to a new four-year deal

Inter have announced that Mauro Icardi has signed a new contract with the club.

The 22-year-old has been in lethal form for the Nerazzurri this season and finished joint-top scorer in Serie A with Luca Toni on 22 goals.

Icardi had caught the attention of a number of sides across Europe following his displays, with Chelsea among those linked with a potential summer bid.

Inter, however, had always been confident of securing a new long-term deal for the Argentine and have now confirmed he has agreed to new terms until 2019.

Head coach Roberto Mancini had expressed his eagerness to see Icardi commit his future to the club following his improvements in the past year.

“He’s improved week after week,” Mancini said after the 4-3 win against Empoli last weekend. “I would like him to stay and start afresh for next year.”

Inter have also announced that goalkeeper Tommaso Berni has extended his stay with the club by another 12 months and will remain at San Siro until the end of June next year.

Roberto Mancini’s men endured a frustrating campaign in 2014-15, failing to break into the top seven and secure a place in Europe next season.
