PSG ‘end Mauro Icardi’s loan contract’ after striker’s wife and agent Wanda Nara ‘tells French side he wants to return to Italy’… but will Inter Milan take him back?
- Mauro Icardi has scored an impressive 20 goals in 31 games for PSG this season
- But he reportedly still wants to go back to Italy after the 2019-20 season is up
- PSG now seem to have sent him back early after learning of his intentions
Mauro Icardi has enjoyed an electrifying season on loan at Paris Saint-Germain but it appears his time in France is set to end in tears.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Icardi’s contract with the French champions has been ended early after his agent and wife, Wanda Nara, informed PSG’s sporting director Leonardo that he wants to return to Italy at the end of his loan deal.
Icardi is on loan from Inter Milan but it is highly possible the Italian side will not welcome him back after an acrimonious exit from the San Siro last summer.

In the 2018-19 season, Icardi refused to travel with the Inter squad for a Europa League clash against Rapid Vienna in protest to losing the club captaincy.
It became a very public and unsavoury fallout between the player, the club and then manager Lucaino Spaletti. Icardi didn’t play in the Inter first team for almost two months, from February until April.
In France this season, Icardi’s form has been excellent and he has scored 20 goals in 31 appearances.
His prowess even saw Edinson Cavani slip down the attacking pecking order in the French capital.
But what comes next for the 27-year-old remains to be seen. Antonio Conte has now replaced Spaletti at the helm of Inter but Romelu Lukaku has established himself as the spearhead of the Inter attack.

Serie A is, at present, indefinitely on pause due to the coronavirus pandemic and clubs across the Italian league have placed players on a pay cut to save money.
In turn, it appears unlikely that teams will be able to splash the cash on players of Icardi’s ilk when the next transfer window is open.
The Argentina international seems set for either more time back in limbo, or a remarkable return to the Inter fold.
