Inter Milan striker Mauro Icardi has been linked to a host of clubs in the English Premier League (EPL) as well as La Liga. But, manager Roberto Mancini claims that he is not worried on the matter and that he prefers to watch more porn than read up on the various transfer rumors.

Icardi has been linked strongly to both Arsenal and West Ham United in the Premier League and also to Atletico Madrid of La Liga. Napoli and Roma from Serie A are also interested to sign the Argentinian striker. This is claimed by his wife, who recently stated that the 23-year-old has received “many offers” from clubs, as reported by Independent.

However, Mancini is not perturbed by any of this and claims that the striker will stay at Inter and will feature strongly in his plans of rebuilding the team, aiming for the top. When asked to comment on the matter, the Italian replied that he is not aware of any such news and would prefer to focus more on his coaching rather than the issue, which doesn’t concern him.

“He is doing the training and showing his endeavor, for me this is important. I do not read newspapers, do not listen to the radio, I do not watch TV or private channels …just porn!” Mancini said.

Mancini’s Inter finished fourth in the Serie A last season and the 51-year-old claims that he and his side are ready to challenge for the league title next season. He also said that none of his players, who form the core of his team, are for sale at any price. The foundation at Inter Milan is good and the squad is slowly becoming strong to challenge for the top once again in Europe.

“Our aim is to do better than last tear. We want to get back in the Champions League but Inter must always aim for the top.” Mancini added.
