Tied to the PSG bench, Icardi refuses to leave

In the shadow of the stars of Paris Saint-Germain, Mauro Icardi enjoys limited playing time this season. The management is therefore considering a departure of the Argentine striker this winter. But the former Inter Milan player would not want to leave the capital.

It’s hard to imagine Mauro Icardi reversing the trend at Paris Saint-Germain. Unsurprisingly, the 28-year-old striker plays the liners this season, he who has only started 10 games in all competitions. It’s not much, especially when we take into account the many absences of Lionel Messi and Neymar. To believe that the Argentinian is not only barred by the MNM. It is clear that Mauro Icardi enters less and less in the plans of the coach Mauricio Pochettino. And on this file, the technician seems on the same wavelength as Leonardo.

Indeed, the sports director of Paris Saint-Germain does not consider the center-forward essential in the workforce. On the contrary, the leader would not be against his departure during this month of January. Only here, the obstacles are numerous. Let’s start with the demand from the Ile-de-France club, which refuses to sell off a player bought 50 million euros. Suddenly, Juventus Turin, the only real courtier of Mauro Icardi at the moment, would only be interested in a simple loan until the end of the season.

Icardi ready to stay in the shadows

An unthinkable hypothesis for Paris Saint-Germain and for the former striker of Inter Milan, eager to register in the long term. In addition, her salary of around 800,000 euros per month is necessarily a problem for the Old Lady. But the main obstacle concerns the state of mind of Mauro Icardi who, despite his complicated situation, is in no hurry to leave. According to Tuttojuve, the Parisian would have indicated to Leonardo that he preferred to stay, even if it means spending most of the second part of the season on the bench. At least the center-forward knows what to expect.
