Report: Mauro Icardi eyeing PSG exit, amid interest from Tottenham and Newcastle

CalcioMercato claim that Mauro Icardi wants to leave Paris Saint-Germain ahead of the January window – with Newcastle and Tottenham interested.

Icardi, 28, is struggling for game time at PSG. Since Lionel Messi joined, he has been relegated to the bench, starting just six of PSG’s 15 games.

Of course, Icardi has been struggling with some personal issues of late, too. His wife and agent, Wanda Nara, recently posted an update on Instagram.

Wanda, an Argentine personality, confirmed that divorce papers had been filed – only to go back on the decision. It saw Icardi miss the Leipzig game.

Now, personal issues are seemingly over, but Icardi is still said to want to leave PSG. He has been linked with Newcastle and Tottenham recently.

Newcastle and Tottenham boost: Which club could Icardi join?

It remains to be seen just how serious Newcastle are going to be in the January window. Are they going to spend big, or bring in a couple?

The likelihood is the latter, and strengthen big in the off season. Certainly, a priority is unlikely to be a striker – given the form of Callum Wilson so far.

Spurs still have Harry Kane – and they lack Champions League football. Icardi is not going to swap being back-up at PSG, for the same role at Spurs.

But next summer, it is more likely that Icardi departs PSG. At that point, either side could move for him – especially if Kane leaves Tottenham.
