Inter Milan striker Mauro Icardi has revealed on Thursday that he wanted his wife Wanda Nara to continue working as his agent for the rest of his career.

Icardi’s comments came after a report from Gazzetta dello Sport said that Inter want the Argentine to appoint a new agent as both sides negotiate a possible extension to the striker’s contract.

Inter are yet to comment on the report by the Italian media outlet on the rumours surrounding the contract negotiations.

“It’ll always be Wanda who takes care of my and our interests until the end of my career,” Icardi said on Twitter.

The former Sampdoria striker, who has two-and-a-half years to run on his current deal with Inter, has been the club’s leading goal scorer in Serie A for the past four seasons, scoring 22, 16, 24 and 29 goals.

But he often finds himself in the gossip columns rather than the sports pages due to his controversial marriage to Wanda, an Argentine media personality who was previously married to Maxi Lopez.

Lopez is believed to have taken Icardi under his wing when the 25-year-old arrived at Sampdoria from Barcelona.
