(HD Video) ‘Real Madrid 0-2 Barcelona, All Goals & Extended Highlight
Mundo Deportivo reported that Real Madrid want nothing to do with Icard’s wife Wanda Nara, who has been a controversial figure in the striker’s life. She is also the Argentine’s agent and is hence expected to be a mediator in the transfer.
But Los Blancos are clear on their stance and want to deal with PSG and their striker directly, without any intervention from his wife.
The former Inter Milan striker first arrived at the Parc des Princes on a loan move in 2019. He hit the ground running and ended the season with impressive numbers, managing 20 goals and four assists from 34 appearances across all competitions.
However, it all went downhill from there for the Argentine after PSG made his move permanent from Inter in 2020. He was only a bit-part player for the French giants in the last two campaigns and endured a disappointing 2021-22 season, registering just five goals in 30 appearances.
A move to Real Madrid would give the 29-year-old a chance to rekindle his career and salvage his reputation as a dangerous marksman. He is not a part of Christophe Galtier’s plans at PSG this season and they would be happy to offload the striker.
Icardi was also left out of the squad for the club’s season opener against Clermont, which they won by a comfortable margin of 5-0.
