Mauro Icardi Offered to Milan Amid PSG Future Uncertainty

Mauro Icardi’s career at Paris Saint-Germain could be drawing to a close as the player informed the club of his desire to leave. According to Calciomercato, Milan are looking to take advantage of the striker’s unhappiness in Paris to bring him back to Serie A. 

Icardi was nothing short of outstanding since joining PSG on a season-long loan in 2019, having racked up 20 goals and 4 assists in his debut season in France. However, the 28-year-old has endured an injury-riddled season after earning a permanent contract at the Parc des Princes, falling behind Moise Kean in the pecking order in the process.

Following an underwhelming season during which he has gobbled just 12 goals, the Argentine is ready to wave goodbye to Paris. PSG forked out €60million to capture Icardi’s services permanently and are looking to recoup most of the funds they paid Inter

Icardi’s wife and agent, Wanda Nara, is already trying to find a feasible solution for her husband, as they both hope to return to Italy in the summer. In addition to Roma, who have recently emerged as the striker’s suitors, Milan have now joined the chasing pack.

Juventus are also in the running, but the prospect of missing out on Champions League football could deter Icardi from accepting a move to Turin.

Elsewhere, the Rossoneri are in the market for a top-notch forward to fill in for Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The big Swede has extended his stay at the San Siro for another season but is past his physical prime (if that’s possible) and has become prone to injuries. 

Milan snapped up Mario Mandzukic in January, but the Croat’s career in Lombardy has often been interrupted by injuries, with the summer departure well on the cards. 

Paolo Maldini has a legitimate shot at bringing the former Inter captain back to Milan, having been approached by the player’s intermediaries to discuss the deal. Icard’s whopping €9M net annual wages could be a stumbling block, though, as the ex-Sampdoria man seems reluctant to give up his salary.
