It is through a succession of photomontages that Mauro Icardi, the Argentine striker of PSG, first positioned himself this Friday on his future. With great blows of mentions “Fake news” (Editor’s note: false information), he denied information indicating his request to leave Paris that one of his representatives would have formulated with Leonardo. He was just as annoyed by the track evoked by the Gazzetta dello Sport of his departure as part of a transaction with Juventus Turin and which would see Cristiano Ronaldo arrive at PSG.
The Argentinian, returned earlier this week to his Italian home on the shores of Lake Como, where he had already spent the 2020 confinement with his wife and agent Wanda, said in a photo where he tightens the jersey of the next season: “I regret that some media misinform. Both me and my family are very happy in Paris and I have many years of contract left. It makes me proud that other teams are interested, but my present and my future are in Paris. “
Even if he scored in the Coupe de France final against Monaco (2-0), Mauro Icardi, 28 years old and under contract until June 2024 in Paris, remains on a disappointing season, especially in the Champions League . He who signed up for four seasons in exchange for 50 million euros, plus eight million bonuses and an estimated annual salary of ten million euros in the summer of 2020, is no longer necessarily considered as a good deal. . This is why the PSG will not fail to study all the avenues that could lead to the striker’s departure, but the discussions promise to be close.
