Inter Milan chief Ausilio talks Icardi, Spalletti futures...

Inter Milan chief Piero Ausilio is confident keeping hold of Mauro Icardi.

Ausilio also insists management is pleased with the work of Inter coach Luciano Spalletti.

He said, “Spalletti and Icardi? The Champions League won't determine whether they'll sign new contracts.

“We want to build an even longer future with them than what their contracts entail. We've already renewed Icardi's contract three times, and we can sit down and discuss it again.

“Transfers? I hope we fall within the parameters of Financial Fair Play, only sacrificing some young players like we did last year.

“It's not been said that some big names must leave. For example, Perisic stayed last year, despite Manchester United's enquiries.

“Obviously the Champions League would help from an economic point of view, but that alone doesn't make a season positive.

“Asamoah? He's a Juventus player and I'll only talk about the market after May 21. Cancelo? We'll make a decision on keeping him once the season is out, seeing whether we qualify for the Champions League or not.

“However, these are just economic assessments and not technical ones. There's no doubt about the player's quality."
