Inter Milan striker Marko Arnautovic quashes all exit rumors, insisting he’ll remain at Appiano Gentile for next season.

The Nerazzurri signed the 35-year-old last summer on an initial loan deal from Bologna that included an obligation to buy. When the conditions were met, the player’s move became permanent.

The veteran served as an understudy for Lautaro Martinez and Marcus Thuram. Therefore, he didn’t enjoy his most prolific campaign.

A last-day brace against Hellas Verona boosted his tally to seven goals and three assists in 35 appearances across all competitions.

Yet, the Austrian has no doubt about his future, insisting he’ll be plying his trade at San Siro next season.

“I don’t know what everyone is writing, they simply write something out of nothing,” said Arnautovic in his interview with Diepresse via FcInter1908.

“Nobody has spoken to me or my agent. I have a contract with Inter, I’m very happy at the club. I will stay at Inter.”

Marko Arnautovic Certain Of His Inter Milan Stay

On the other hand, the striker was less certain when it came to his future with the Austrian national team.

The Nerazzurri striker suggests he could retire from international duty after Euro 2024, but has yet to make a conclusive decision on the matter.

After the European Championships, I will talk to the people who are close to me. This includes my family and also the national team coach.

“Then I will see if the desire is still there to continue. It’s not a physical question. I really like playing for the national team and I’m proud of what I achieved here.

“This is my country, I grew up here in Austria.”

Arnautovic has already made 111 caps for his country, scoring 36 international goals in the process.

He is second in Austria’s all-time goal-scorer behind Tony Polster who boasts 48 international goals.
