Juventus keen on signing Mauro Icardi on loan

Mauro Icardi is former Inter Milan striker, an Argentine who plays for the national team when called upon, a prolific striker during his days at inter Milan, always in the context of who’s winning the golden boot.

In recent years, he has lost his plight in the game, when he fell out with the Inter Milan executives and management. Then he switched to Paris but things haven’t worked out as he had thought with lots of star players and Mbappe been able to play his position quite good.

The Argentine has struggled to see minutes this season with Paris Saint-Germain and is interested in returning to Serie A during the next transfer window.

Mauro Icardi scored his first goal in almost three months in Paris Saint-Germain’s 3-0 win against SC Feignies in the round of 64 of the Coupe de France over the weekend.

The Argentine striker scored from the penalty to give the Paris-based team a 2-0 win and played the full 90 minutes.

Truth be told, Icardi has been relegated to a more secondary role since Lionel Messi arrived in Paris in the summer.

He has only made 14 appearances in Ligue 1 so far this campaign, and only six of them as a starter. In total, he has played 838 minutes across all competitions with four goals to his name.

Apparently, Icardi is not happy being used as a substitute and he would like to return to Serie A in the January transfer window.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, Juventus are keen on bringing the 28-year-old to Turin, but they want a six-month loan deal with the option to make the move permanent.

In exchange, Juventus would send Arthur to PSG as the Serie A giants are not ready to spend a large sum of money on a player with a delicate personal life.

Per the report, his agent and wife, Wanda Icardi, already ‘held talks’ with Juventus.

The Argentine would be in a haste to go back to Seria A where he rose to fame, trying to reignite his old self in front of goal, after having some bad years and even falling off the pecking order of the new incumbent manager Mauricio Pochettino.
