In lack of playing time at Paris Saint-Germain, Mauro Icardi would not be against a departure this winter. But the possibilities are not many for the Argentine striker, only considered for Manchester United after the retirement of Juventus Turin.
From the arrival of Lionel Messi last summer, Mauro Icardi had surely understood what awaited him. The center forward of Paris Saint-Germain is indeed condemned to remain in the shadow of the MNM. And even when one or more members of the trio are not available, the 28-year-old Argentine is not necessarily Mauricio Pochettino’s first choice. The proof, Mauro Icardi has started only eight games this season in all competitions. Under these conditions, the former Inter Milan player would not be against a departure this winter.
Juve abandons the case
But the exit door promises to be difficult to find. To begin with, Paris Saint-Germain, which needs to sell, refuses to sell off a player who bought 50 million euros. It is hard to see a courtier like Juventus Turin landing with an offer close to this amount. According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Old Lady would rather negotiate a loan until the end of the season, and without an option to buy. An assumption to be forgotten for the Ile-de-France club, but also for Mauro Icardi who wishes to register in the long term within a new team.
This is why the Turinese would have abandoned the game, leaving Manchester United as the only escape route for the Parisian. The problem is that the Red Devils would condition his arrival on the departures of Edinson Cavani and Frenchman Anthony Martial, the newspaper L’Equipe revealed this week. In addition, the pressing wanted by manager Ralf Rangnick does not really match the profile of Mauro Icardi, who should be content with a role of understudy of Cristiano Ronaldo. Nothing very exciting for Wanda Nara’s husband.
