The Nerazzurri skipper has found himself at the centre of controversy in recent days after the release of his autobiography in which he recounted an incident when he challenged the club’s Ultras.
After missing a penalty in Sunday’s 2-1 defeat to Cagliari, fresh calls for him to be sold were made by the fans but Inter have insisted they will not sell their captain, who only signed a five-year contract extension earlier this month.
His representative and wife, Wanda, has now played down the chances of the 23-year-old leaving the Giuseppe Meazza, insisting that he owes it to the club to stay put.
“Absolutely not,” she told the Argentine press. “He has just renewed his contract for five years, which includes a termination clause of €110 m for foreign teams.
“There have been offers from other clubs, but Inter conducted themselves in an incredible way with Mauro. He has always worked hard to stay at the club.”
