Icardi unsure on future plans

Paris Saint-Germain

PSG forward Mauro Icardi admits he does not know if he will return to Inter Milan next season.

The Argentine forward’s relationship with the Nerrazzuri declined over recent months and he was allowed to join the French champions on a season-long loan deal on deadline day, with a 70million Euro option to buy next summer.

His career in France has got off to a good start, as he scored twice in four appearances, including the winner in their Champions League group match against Galatasaray.

It is a new beginning for Icardi, who was stripped of the Inter captaincy last season and subsequently refused to play in a Europa League game against Rapid Vienna.

The 26-year-old’s future looked even more uncertain at the San Siro when they paid Manchester United 80million euros to sign Romelu Lukaku.

Despite his wife and agent Wanda Nara hinting recently that Icardi is open to the possibility of resurrecting his Serie A career after this season has ended, the forward says he is settled in Paris and has not had any indication of his future plans.

“I feel good here,” he told Gazzetta dello Sport.

“This year, I’m at PSG and my goal is to give my best for this shirt. Then at the end of the season, around May or June, we’ll see what happens. It’s still too early to say anything.”

The controversial figure has enjoyed a break over the international period, having only won eight caps for his country since debuting in 2013, owing to issues surrounding his private life.

He is next expected to take to the field on Friday when PSG travel to Nice in Ligue 1.
