A game time reduced to the skin of grief, a family life that makes the headlines, nothing is going for Mauro Icardi at PSG. The Argentine striker has understood this and wants to start.
Guess where Mauro Icardi is spending a few days off during the international break? Not selected with Argentina, who disposed of Uruguay last night (1-0), the striker left to recharge his batteries in Milan (then in Dubai), the city he had reluctantly left to join PSG in 2019, the city that represents his best years, when he was Inter Milan’s star scorer.
In search of lost happiness, in search of redemption from his wife and agent Wanda Nara, Icardi asks himself questions. And start to find answers. According to our information, the Argentinian, like last summer, still wants to leave, where he has become a luxury replacement, second knife behind mega-stars Messi, Neymar and Mbappé. To have a chance to start a match, he understood that one of these men, or even Di Maria in addition, had to be absent.
A return to Italy?
Between his struggling couple and his declining playing time (only 5 starts this season), Icardi has the feeling that nothing has turned in the right direction for him since he joined the French capital, after however convincing beginnings in 2019-2020. Icardi was able to see it during the last two meetings (returned in the 90th minute against Leipzig, only 5 minutes against Bordeaux), it does not enter the plans of Mauricio Pochettino.
His desire is clear: to find a quieter club, where he would be a major element, and where he could take care of his family. If an opportunity presents itself in January, he will investigate it. Obviously, eyes will turn to Italy, but we will have to find a club interested and able to pay a substantial sum to PSG, even if the value of the 28-year-old striker has fallen considerably (recruited € 50m by the Ile-de-France club, it is valued at € 35 million by Transfermarkt today). Last summer, the former Interiste was ready to join Juventus, which had been unable to secure a deal with Paris Saint-Germain.
