The departure of Mauro Icardi is a hot topic at the start of the transfer window, but the 28-year-old forward may well continue his career at Paris Saint-Germain.
The only real number 9 of Paris Saint-Germain this season, Mauro Icardi seems more than ever on the sidelines of the group. His playing time has been greatly reduced with the arrival of Lionel Messi this summer and he has never been able to be decisive, when Mauricio Pochettino appealed to him. Thus, like last summer, a departure of Icardi is once again mentioned in this winter transfer window. We must not forget that Leonardo must recover nearly 100M € in this month of January and Icardi would have a market value of 28M €, according to the specialized site Transfermarkt. Moreover, Leonardo can count on a recurring track with Juventus, who had already approached the goalscorer of PSG during the last summer transfer window and who is again looking for an offensive reinforcement to offer to Massimiliano Allegri. His team has indeed a starving record of 28 goals in 20 Serie A matches. .
PSG and Juventus do not agree
Within Juventus, there is a man who would be particularly a fan of Mauro Icardi and it would be Massimiliano Allegri. The latter wants to recruit the former Inter since 2015 and his first stint in Turin, but never has he looked close to being able to get there. The right time now seems to have arrived, but its leaders seem to want to dampen the enthusiasm of Allegri . La Gazzetta dello Sport explains that the managing director Maurizio Arrivabene wants to tighten the screws and would therefore have set a clear framework for Icardi: a dry loan of six months, without option to buy. A formula absolutely not to the taste of Leonardo, who would only want a final transfer for number 9 of PSG.
Wanda Nara frightens the suitors
Both parties seem to be sticking to their positions and The Gazzetta dello Sport therefore announced this Saturday that the track Mauro Icardi would have fallen through for Juventus. In Turin we would already have projects for this summer, with < strong> Gianluca Scamacca as well as Dušan Vlahović and there is therefore no place for the striker of Paris Saint-Germain , who will celebrate his 29 years in next February. But that doesn't seem to be the only reason! Still according to La Gazzetta, the role of Wanda Nara in the professional entourage of Icardi would not really please the leaders of Juventus. Too controversial, too much media and sometimes too much invasive, the companion and player agent of PSG would indeed not be really welcome in Turin.
