Mauro Icardi wants to stay at Inter

Icardi says he is happy at Inter and wants to stay.

Mauro Icardi has pledged his future to Inter Milan despite being strongly linked with a summer move to La Liga winners Atletico Madrid.

The 21-year-old Argentina international striker has been mooted as a likely arrival with David Villa having left Atletico over the summer and Diego Costa looking set to join Chelsea.

But Icardi, who joined Inter from Sampdoria last year, told tuttomercatoweb.com: "Atletico Madrid's interest? They are a big club that has done really well with [Diego] Simeone. I am flattered, but I want to remain here.

"I am here because Inter is a big club. Money is not important because I already have a privileged life as a footballer.

"I have four years left on my contract, I am happy here and I want to remain."

Icardi, who suffered a hernia problem last season, scored nine goals in his 22 league appearances.

He said: "It was a hard year for me and for the club. Fortunately, we were able to achieve our aim to qualify for Europe this season [Inter finished fifth in Serie A].

"Now we start from the beginning, and we hope to do well."
