Mauro Icardi ‘desperate to return to Italy rather than stay with PSG this summer’ with Argentine striker keen on joining Juventus or Napoli
- Mauro Icardi wants to return to Italy this summer, rather than sign for PSG
- The Inter Milan striker was cast aside by Antonio Conte at the start of the season
- But despite his good form in the French capital, Icardi sees his future in Italy
- He would prefer a move to Juventus or Napoli but would consider an Inter return
Mauro Icardi has his sights set on a return to Italy once his loan spell at Paris Saint-Germain concludes this summer.
The Argentine striker was allowed to leave Inter Milan by Antonio Conte last summer and joined the French giants on a season-long loan.
He has impressed in Paris, scoring 20 goals in 31 appearances to help them into the Champions League quarter-finals and put them on the brink of another Ligue 1 title.

But Italian outlet calciomercato has claimed Icardi does not see his long-term future at Thomas Tuchel’s side and is desperate to return to Serie A in the summer.
His contract with Inter Milan expires in June 2022 but Conte made it clear last year that Icardi does not feature in his plans.
It is claimed that if the Nerazzurri cannot reach an agreement to sell Icardi to either Juventus or Napoli then Icardi would consider returning to Inter.
Last month it was also reported that Real Madrid are prepared to offer a player-plus cash deal for the forward.
Icardi’s wife and agent, Wanda Nara, says that she will follow her husband’s decision
But it is understood his wife and agent, Wanda Nara, is reluctant to sanction a move to the Bernabeu and would prefer he went to Juve.
However, she admitted that the choice is her husband’s.
She said: ‘If Mauro will never go to Juve? That I just do not know. I do not know if next year we will live in Milan or Paris, with football you never know. He will choose and we will follow.’
