However, the Argentine has claimed that he has given no consideration to the prospect of departing the San Siro.
"Atletico? Why would I ever leave Inter? I am a key player here and I want to do well wearing the Inter jersey. I had my phone switched off during my holiday and didn't read any papers. I never even considered leaving Inter," he told Corriere dello Sport.
Icardi joined Inter from Sampdoria last year.
