Manchester United and Chelsea target Mauro Icardi is in no rush to pen a new deal at Inter Milan, according to his agent.
As talkSPORT told you last month, it has been widely reported that the Argentinian is on the verge of penning a lucrative new deal with the club to ward off interest from England and Spain.
Despite his current contract still having three years to run, it was suggested that Inter were ready to boost their captain’s annual salary by 25 per cent, taking it from £4million to £5million a year as a reward for his form.
But now his wife Wanda, who is also his agent, says there is no renewal in the offing for her husband, who hit 29 goals in 34 Serie A outings last term.
She told Tiki Taka: “He still has three years on his contract with Inter, there’s no renewal theme.
Speaking on international duty, Belgium star Hazard told the media: “Sometimes in my head, I wake up in the morning and think I want to go. Sometimes I think I want to stay. It is a hard decision. It is my future. I am 27 and I will turn 28 in January.”
Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina wants Italian giants Napoli to make his loan move permanent, according to reports in Italy.
The Colombian shot-stopper completed the temporary switch away from Arsenal following the summer arrival of Bernd Leno from Bayer Leverkusen, which made him third choice, with Petr Cech also at the club.
He joined Napoli in August on a season-long loan with an option to buy for a reported fee of £4million.
After a shaky start in Italy, Ospina has now emerged as first-choice for manager Carlo Ancelotti and he has repaid the faith with a string of impressive displays.
And now Italian newspaper Il Mattino has reported that Ospina is ‘hoping’ to make his current loan switch permanent, after just five Serie A outings, with no obvious route back into the first team at Arsenal.

Asked about Hazard’s comments while away with Belgium, The Sports Bar host said: “I think it’s a very open and a very honest statement. He’s a lovely lad and he doesn’t cause problems.
“As Chelsea fans we’ve got to accept he’s not a west London boy and he wants to play for Real Madrid.
“If they come in with a big enough offer, I think we have to accept that there is a time and a place in a player’s career and he wants to go on and play for one of the biggest clubs, if not THE biggest club, in world football.
“But, from my point of view, I want him to stay – of course I do.
“It’s a really horrible situation for the club because he’s playing well and he’s clearly happy right now, but he has ambitions to go on a do something.”
“I would make him the highest paid player in the world.
“I would give him £650k, £700k, £750k-a-week. Why not? Tell me why not?
“To replace him… you can’t replace him!
“What’s he worth on the open market, say £150million? You’re not going to be able to replace him!”
“Chelsea should make Hazard the highest paid player in the world…
Borussia Dortmund sensation Jadon Sancho is making a big name for himself in Germany.
The 18-forward has nine assists to his name already this season – more than any other player in Europe – despite appearing from the bench for the vast majority of his appearances.
His form in the Bundesliga has resulted in Gareth Southgate calling the teenager up to the senior England squad for the UEFA Nations League games against Croatia and Spain.
The former Manchester City starlet – who rejected a contract with the Premier League champions to join Dortmund – is now being tracked by all of the elite clubs in England, according to The Sun.
Their report claims Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United and Tottenham are all watching the talented youngster closely.
Although the Bundesliga giants are bracing themselves for bids in the nine-figure region, they see Sancho as a long-term replacement for Barcelona star Ousmane Dembele, who left for Barcelona in 2017, and are determined to keep hold of him.
Such is their faith in Sancho, Dortmund handed the Under-17 World Cup winner the No.7 shirt at the Westfalenstadion on his arrival at the club last year and will demand £100million upwards should one of the Premier League big guns come calling.
