The PSG list, without Icardi.

The story has so many chapters that it already seems like a novel. Mauro Icardi is back in the spotlight and, once again, it has nothing to do with sporting reasons. After a week in which the rumor of her separation from Wanda Narayour partner and representative, The striker was left out of the squad list for PSG’s debut in Ligue 1 this Saturday.

Galtier’s arrival at the bench of Paris Saint Germain led to think from the beginning that Icardi would lose place in the coach’s consideration. As in the pre-season friendlies he gave him a few minutes and no offer appeared for him to emigrate in the transfer market, the panorama seemed clearer for MI9, but He did not have action in the French Super Cup last weekend and this Saturday, in the visit to Clermont, he will not even sit among the substitutes.


The PSG list, without Icardi.

Not even the loss of Kylian Mbappé (muscular fatigue in the adductors) made Icardi a place on a list in which he did both Lionel Messi and Leandro Paredes appear. In this way, Pablo Sarabia, Arnaud Kalimuendo, a boy from the Inferiores who promises a lot or the newcomer Hugo Ekitike, who would make his debut, could appear to accompany Leo and Neymar in the attack.

Do they take care of him or show him the way out?

Mauro and Wanda, again in crisis.

Mauro and Wanda, again in crisis.

What is clear is that Icardi has no physical problem and the decision not to take it into account for the league debut is fully sporting. Or not? Last year, when the affair with China Suárez exploded and the shootouts on social networks with Wanda Nara, the footballer had already missed some PSG games and Galtier could be preserving it at another sensitive personal moment.

On Icardi’s side, he came out to deny the rumors of divorce, despite the fact that an audio of Wanda herself had been leaked in the first instance. But the possibility that the DT is giving Mauro a clear message that he will not be taken into account is no less powerful. If this is the case, Rosario will have time until August 31, the date on which the transfer market closes in Europe, to find a new team.

After the departure of Ángel Di María to Juventus, and with the latent possibility that Leandro Paredes will also leave Paris in the coming weeks, now Icardi also enters the list of expendable of a cast that wants to step strong in his country and in Europe. Will Leo be the only Argentine on the team this season?
