“I’m happy to stay here, I care about this team,” the Argentina striker said in an interview with Sky Sports Italia.

“I could have left, there were contacts (with other clubs), but then I decided to stay here for myself and my family.

“I dreamed of playing in the Champions League for Inter.”

Icardi joined Inter from Serie A rivals Sampdoria in 2013.

It was learned that he has a release clause worth 110 million euros ($126 million).

The 25-year-old has scored 112 goals for the club, and was the joint top-scorer in Serie A with 29 last season.

“The renewal? I don’t know if it will happen before Christmas, we will look for a solution,” he added.
