During the upcoming winter break, Inter management will sit down with club captain Mauro Icardi to hold talks over a new contract with the club according to Gazzetta dello Sport.
New chief executive Beppe Marotta and sporting director Piero Ausilio are aiming to get the Argentine to sign a two year extension to his current contract which runs until 2021 thus meaning the new deal would end in 2023.
Some talks have taken place in recent months and there has been some distance between Inter’s proposals and Icardi’s agent and wife Wanda Icardi’s demands but Inter wish to wrap things up fairly quickly when they meet this time.
The report goes on to detail that Marotta does not like the idea of having release clauses in player’s contracts and it cannot be excluded that a release clause is completely excluded from his deal. Currently Icardi has a €110 million clause in his contract which is only valid for foreign clubs during the first fortnight in July.
