Mauro Icardi admits his Inter future is up in the air. “If it’s good for the team that I stay, then I’ll stay, otherwise I will leave.”
The striker is their most valuable player at €120m and their Financial Fair Play status could be at risk.
This evening’s 2-1 home defeat to Sassuolo left their chances of qualifying for the Champions League in tatters.
“I repeat every year, I will speak to the club. If it’s good for the team that I stay, then I’ll stay, otherwise I will leave,” Icardi told Sky Sport Italia and Mediaset Premium.
“I always do what is best for the club and the team. When the season ends, we’ll talk to the club and see what is best for them.
“It’s disappointing, because we wanted to win tonight, but Sassuolo had a great game and Andrea Consigli enjoyed the best performance of his career.
“We started the season in extraordinary fashion, then had a dip, but the only thing I can say is that I’m proud of what we’ve done.
“The objective was the Champions League and not being in it means we’ve missed the target we set at the start of the campaign. We always start with that as a target and we’ve never managed it.
“Hopefully, tomorrow Crotone will give us a chance to still fight it out with Lazio next week.”
