Mauro Icardi delighted with new deal at Inter Milan

Mauro Icardi is pleased with his new deal at Inter Milan.

The striker's new contract was officially announced today, with the Nerazzurri captain committing until 2021.

“Was I close to leaving this summer?" Icardi considered, speaking to reporters at the Inter Store.

“No, I never thought about it. I was calm, I was happy, I was giving my all in training to start the season well. Now I want to continue like this and help the team win.

“In Italy we talk about [Francesco] Totti, [Javier] Zanetti and [Paolo] Maldini, champions who have done well for their teams.

“I'm still young and I can't promise I'll stay here for 20 years, but it would be an objective.

“I'm the captain and I'm always tied to this team, it's an honour and a pleasure for me to commit to this club for a long time."
