Icardi: I want to stay in Milan

Inter Milan striker Mauro Icardi has made it clear that he is not interested in a move to Manchester United, following rumours linking him to the English club.

Reports from Italy suggest that the Premier League side have earmarked Icardi as the ideal addition to strengthen their attack.

However the Argentine forward has stressed that he is happy at San Siro and would like to stay for a long time.

"I am feeling very well in Milan. I want to stay here for a long time," Icardi told Corriere dello Sport.

"I received a number of offers when we were discussing my contract renewal with the club, but I had already taken my decision.

"I would also turn down Manchester United. Inter are working on a great project and I want to play my part in it.

"People say I am worth 40million(euros), but it is up to me to prove I am worth that much money. I am committed to this team and happy to be part of it."

The 22-year-old has scored 10 goals in 21 Serie A appearances this season, and contract with Inter runs until June 2019.
