Undesirable at PSG, Mauro Icardi is of interest to two Turkish clubs, according to information from RMC Sport: Galatasaray and Fenerbahçe. His agent Wanda Nara, ready to start negotiations, went to Istanbul.

Galatasaray and Fenerbahçe interested

But since mid-March, the Argentinian international has said he is open to a private departure, as revealed by RMC Sport. Problem, the teams potentially interested are not numerous. Wanda Nara, the player’s agent, still responded to an approach from Monza. Two meetings were organized with the leaders of the promoted in Serie A. The latter asked for support of 60% of the salary before finally setting their sights on Andrea Petagna (Naples). The Dortmund track was also mentioned for a time by the foreign press, before being denied by several sources close to the German club at RMC Sport.

Today, two clubs are interested according to our information: Galatasaray and Fenerbahçe. But the Parisian number 9 also has its conditions. He absolutely wants to relaunch as a holder. Among his requirements: an important club, located in a city comfortable for his relatives. Italy was clearly privileged at the start of the transfer market. But the player, recruited 50 million euros in 2020 by PSG, could seriously study the opportunities in other countries.

His partner and agent is ready to start negotiations. In recent hours, she was also in Istanbul. It remains to be seen whether these discussions will succeed when Mauro Icardi has not started a Ligue 1 match since January 23.
