Spalletti seeking Icardi clarity

Inter head coach Luciano Spalletti wants clarity over Mauro Icardi's future at the Serie A club.

Icardi's contract does not expire until 2021 but the Inter captain has still been linked with Barcelona, Real Madrid and Manchester United.

The Argentina international's agent and wife Wanda Nara insists Icardi will renew, however, doubts remain.

And Spalletti appeared frustrated with the situation after Inter's 1-0 win over Parma, which extended Icardi's scoreless run in Serie A to seven matches.

"I have not created any problems for Icardi," Spalletti told DAZN following Saturday's clash.

"Issues need to be clarified, because when you leave things half-cocked, they become open to interpretation.

"People have said a few too many things, now there is time to sit down and talk about something we've avoided and dragged along with us for months."
