Icardi played an active role in Galatasaray in the 2022-23 season, scoring 22 goals in the Turkiye Superliga. Galatasaray won the league title with a record of 28 wins, 4 draws and 4 losses (88 points) in the Turkiye Superliga last season with Icardi’s great success. Galatasaray, who had been in 13th place in the previous season, rose rapidly with Icardi’s performance and succeeded in winning the league for the first time in four years.
Icardi made a full transfer to Galatasaray after playing for PSG for three seasons from the 2019-20 season. PSG has been negative about Icardi’s return.
French media Quest said on the 5th, ‘Icardi, who played on loan in Galatasaray last season, will not be able to return to PSG. PSG think Icardi is not the right player for PSG and are looking for a way to release Icardi. Saudi Arabia’s professional club Al Shabab could make PSG’s decision easier. Al Shabab offered PSG a transfer fee of 20 million euros (approximately 28.3 billion won) for Icardi. He offered Icardi a two-year contract with an annual salary of 40 million euros (approximately 56.6 billion won),’ and also mentioned the rumor of a transfer to a club in Saudi Arabia. Icardi, who also played in 8 A-matches for the Argentine national team, will continue to play an active part in the Turkiye stage.
While PSG is on an Asian tour during the preseason, Mbappe, who refused to renew the contract with PSG, was excluded from the Asian tour list. PSG did not join the Asian tour not only Mbappe, but also players classified as non-power players such as Paredes and Winaldum, who returned on loan after the end of last season.
PSG will face Inter Milan on the 1st of next month while playing matches against Al Nasr and Cerezo Osaka in Japan. PSG, who will visit Korea after that, will play against Jeonbuk in Busan on the 3rd of next month.
