Speaking in Italian paper Corriere Dello Sport and reported by RMC Sport, Mauro Icardi’s agent and wife Wanda Nara spoke out about the Argentine striker’s current situation at PSG – being sidelined and shown the exit door by manager Christophe Galtier.
“He is under contract with the club for another two years. To release a player, you have to pay a lot of money and we are not in that situation. These are things that happen when you change coaches and the new coach makes other decisions. That’s why there are also changes or transfers, it can happen… But there are many players who find themselves in this situation, in this club and in others.”
“I am the only one who knows things. Not like others who talk without knowing anything.”
In his press conference ahead of Paris Saint-Germain’s reception of Montpellier on Saturday night, manager Christophe Galtier notably discussed Mauro Icardi’s situation, with the Argentine ostensbily being shown the exit door
Now, the striker is very much on the transfer list, with Galtier himself pointing out that a change of scenery would do Icardi some good after a difficult two-year spell in Paris.
“I saw Mauro at the start of the week. His absence last week was for tactical reasons, I told him that I want to reduce the size of the squad and not work with 25 outfield players. The club is working closely with Mauro to find the best possible solution.”
“He’s had very little game time and I think it would be best for him to get back up and running. He hasn’t suddenly lost everything [he can do] but it’s true that it’s been complicated for the last two years. Being able to change location, to find a more favourable environment, can help you get back on track in your career.”
