Icardi: Inter renewal still far away

The Giuseppe Meazza side are keen to extend the striker’s current deal, but he has made it clear there is no agreement just yet

Mauro Icardi has admitted that he is not close to a renewing his contract with Inter at the moment.

The Argentine attacker has developed into a key player at the Giuseppe Meazza side since joining them from Sampdoria in the summer of 2013 and they are keen to reward the 22-year-old for his sublime performances with a new and improved deal.

Sporting director Piero Ausilio recently revealed that Inter have already sat down with Icardi’s agent, Abian Morano, a number of times to hold talks and a deal seemed imminent.

However, Icardi has made it clear there are still plenty of details that need ironed out first.

“I don’t know about my renewal. There are still a lot of things that need sorted,” Icardi told reporters.

General director Marco Fassone, meanwhile, is hopeful an agreement will be reached in the not too distant future.

“There have a number of meetings. We have expressed our desire to renew his deal and to hold on to him,” Fassone added.

“I believe that there’s also a desire to extend on Icardi’s part and that there is a will to wrap things up shortly.”

The striker has already netted 15 goals in 25 Serie A appearances so far in 2014-15 and his contract runs until June 2018.
