Inter Milan striker Mauro Icardi has insisted that he expects to see out the remainder of his contract at the Serie A outfit, reports ESPN.
Speaking to the "Grand Hotel Chiambretti" TV show, the talented 21-year-old, who has a contract with Inter until the summer of 2018, doesn't expect to leave the club anytime soon despite a number of England's elite clubs interested in his services.
In fact, as many as three clubs have been tipped to swoop for the striker, with the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool all linked with moves.
However, it appears that despite the interest from Liverpool and Co., Icardi is staying in Italy for now.
Icardi said: "I think I will stay until the end of the contract."

Worth the battle
It remains uncertain as to whether some of the English big-boys step up their pursuit of the striker despite his latest comments.
There's no doubt about it, at 21-years-old, he'd prove quite the coup for the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool or Chelsea, as the clubs go in search of long term success.
He's enjoyed a fine season in Italy and may well prove to be one of the leading strikers in world football over the coming years. Inter will certainly have to stay strong if they're to keep their special talent.
