Icardi ‘wants to quit PSG’ after Nara troubles and lack of playing time

Mauro Icardi reportedly wants to leave Paris Saint-Germain following his lack of action on the pitch, as well as a series of furious bust-ups with wife Wanda Nara off of it.

The Argentine striker has struggled for minutes this year after starting just five games under Mauricio Pochettino.

Icardi has made headlines for all the wrong reasons in recent weeks following a string of high-profile rows with his wife and agent, Nara.

The pair now seem to be back on track after a rough spell.

And Icardi is now determined to mend his career on the pitch by sealing a move away from PSG.

According to Foot Mercato, Icardi is now looking to leave the club in order to play more regularly.

The report states that Icardi wants to find a 'calmer club' where he can focus on his family and his relationship with Nara following their explosive issues over the past few weeks.

It remains to be seen if PSG would be open to offloading Icardi.

The 28-year-old was a transfer target for Juventus in the summer, although they failed to make their move for the ex-Inter Milan ace.

Where do you think Mauro Icardi will end up? Let us know in the comments section.

And it seems unlikely that Juve will revive their interest in the New Year, with reports in the French press indicating that they have abandoned their attempts to try and lure Icardi back to Serie A just two years after he ditched Italy for Paris.

Even if Juventus have been scared off by Icardi's off-field issues, it's unlikely he'll have a lack of suitors if he does move on from PSG.

Icardi forged a reputation as one of Europe's most lethal strikers during his six-year spell at Inter, racking up an impressive 124 goals in just 219 appearances.

Unfortunately, he's been unable to replicate that form during his two-and-a-half-year stint in Ligue 1.

Pochettino has an embarrassment of riches available to him in PSG's attacking ranks following Lionel Messi's stunning switch to Paris in the summer.

And Kylian Mbappe is still the main man at the Parc des Prince stadium; even if there are significant doubts over his long-term future at the club.

Even though Icardi has a big-bucks contract that runs until the summer of 2024, it's hard to see PSG kicking up too much of a fuss should the forward formally request a move when you consider the star quality they have in their forward ranks.

And that should see Icardi, and Nara, pop up elsewhere in Europe in the near future – with a host of huge clubs likely to be keeping an eye on the situation.
