Premier League outfits Chelsea and Manchester United have been told by Inter Milan that an offer worth £30 million will not be enough to win the signature of star Mauro Icardi.
Inter sporting director Piero Ausilio told Sky Sports they have no intentions on selling Icardi, and are thinking about the past and presence of the Argentine’s career at the San Siro
“What if someone bids €40m (£30m) for him in the summer?
“Well we’ve got no intention of doing business, we’re thinking of the present and future of this football club with Icardi.
“Our intentions are clear. We’re building a team to last for a long time with very talented, young players.
“As well as Mateo Kovacic and Icardi, we’ve added more quality players such as Marcelo Brozovic and Xherdan Shaqiri and we want to continue in this vein.”
Icardi has scored on 14 occasions in 24 appearances so far this campaign, which has given Inter the incentive to build around the player.
