Inter Milan captain Mauro Icardi has extended his contract until 2021.
The 23-year-old striker who has scored six goals in seven league appearances this season, Icardi joined Inter in 2013 from Serie A rival Sampdoria and was named captain two years later at the age of 22.
Icardi was linked with a move away from the San Siro during the close season with reports suggesting that several Premier League clubs, including Arsenal and Chelsea, were vying for the Argentine’s signature.
But his new contract reportedly has a buyout clause of €110m, which can only be activated by non-Italian clubs, and the striker will earn €5.5m euros per season.
Inter, who are ninth in the Serie A standings after a 2-1 loss to AS Roma on Sunday, host Cagliari on October 16 after the international break.
