Mauro Icardi is wanted neither in PSG nor in Inter. On the other hand, Arsenal will find it challenging to keep Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
In the summer of 2019, Mauro Icardi moved from Inter to Paris Saint-Germain on loan. Although he looks good at the French club and is productive – 12 goals and 3 assists in 20 Ligue 1 matches, the Parisian club are not going to redeem him and will return him to Inter in the summer.
The Italian team does not want to return the Argentine. The 27-year-old has a bad relationship with the coaching staff and the club’s management. That is why it is often written that Icardi will have to find a new club for himself.
It is also extensively reported that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang wants to leave the London Arsenal. The 30-year-old’s name has been linked with a move to Barcelona several times during the winter transfer window.
According to Tuttosport, Arsenal and Inter are planning to exchange players. Conte is ready to see the Gabonese player in Inter, while the English club is ready to add Icardi.
Aubameyang has a contract with Arsenal until the summer of 2021. He also has a contract with Inter until the summer of 2021. The exchange of players is scheduled for next summer, and, if agreed, the transfer will take place.
PSG is appealing to Inter to extend Icardi’s lease
The Parisians want to keep the Argentine striker in the team. According to L’Equipe, PSG will apply to Inter for an extension of the lease soon.
However, the source said that the Parisians have also developed an alternative – they will agree to buy Icardi if “Inter” will reduce their fee from 70 to 50 million euros.
Also, the press writes that “PSG” is considering another option – in particular, the offer of “Inter” for 50 million euros and Julian Draxler.
