MAURO ICARDI has informed Paris Saint-Germain he wants to leave the club in the summer.
Icardi enjoyed immense success at the Parc des Princes when he joined PSG on loan from Inter Milan in 2019 as he racked up 20 goals as well as four assists in 34 matches.
But the striker has struggled ever since putting pen-to-paper on a permanent deal with the Parisians as he endured an injury-riddled campaign and dropped down the pecking order in the process.
According to Calciomercato, Icardi has told the club he wishes to depart at the end of the season with his wife and agent Wanda Nara searching for her husband’s next destination.
AC Milan are reportedly looking to take advantage of the Argentina international’s unhappiness in Paris by bringing him back to the Serie A.
The couple are hoping to return to Italy and Roma seem to have joined the bidding war for the 28-year-old.
Juventus are also in the running but the prospect of missing out on next season’s Champions League could deter the Argentine from moving to Turin.
Icardi has immense Serie A experience as he spent seven years playing in Italy for the likes of Sampdoria and Inter.
The centre-forward enjoyed success at Inter after moving to the San Siro in 2013, scoring 124 goals in 219 matches.
His suitors will have to reach an agreement with his wife Nara, whom he met during his time in Sampdoria and embarked on a controversial marriage.
Their relationship started when the Argentinean media personality was married to Icardi’s team-mate Maxi Lopez, whom she divorced in 2013 after the affair was exposed.
Their marriage caused animosity in Argentina a year later.
Lopez refused to shake the Argentine’s hand on two separate occasions when Inter played against Sampdoria and Torino in 2014 and 2016 respectively, the former of which was dubbed the “Wanda derby”.
Icardi’s stint at the San Siro was also affected later on by Nara’s comments on Italian TV show Tiki Taka where she criticised management.
That led to the club stripping the player of the captain’s armband in 2019.
