Al-Nassr still wants to strike a blow. After the formalization of the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo, the Saudi club would be eyeing another renowned striker in the person of Mauro Icardi, the Paris Saint-Germain striker on loan this season to the Turkish formation of Galatasaray.

Mauro Icardi, Galatasaray

The leaders of Al-Nassr have not finished with excessiveness. While the arrival of Portuguese striker Cristiano Ronaldo has been confirmed in recent hours – the 37-year-old player having signed a contract until 2025 including an annual salary of 200 million euros, the Saudi club would now like to devote its efforts the recruitment of another leading center-forward, but of a size much smaller than that of the former member of Real Madrid and Manchester United. According to the information provided by the site TuttoMercatoWebthe team trained by the French Rudi Garcia would think this time of Mauro Icardi, the Argentinian striker of Galatasaray.

4 goals in 6 games at Galatasaray

Al-Nassr would intend to compete with the Argentinians of Newell’s Old Boys on the file leading to the former resident of the Italian championship and Serie A. The team which plays in Riyadh would dream of associate “CR7” with the native of Rosario, loaned this season by Paris Saint-Germain to Galatasaray and whose contract in the French capital still runs until June 2024. What offer will the leaders send? Will Al-Nassr succeed in convincing Paris Saint-Germain? The answers on the track leading to Mauro Icardi are not yet known and the next few weeks will make it possible to learn more about the real intentions of this suitor today in full light.

Pushed out by the Parisian management and the new coach of the reigning French champion, Christophe Galtier, the 29-year-old pyrotechnician has regained confidence with the Turkish club, Mauro Icardi having scored 4 goals and delivered 3 assists in only 6 Süper Lig games. A nice start for the compatriot of Lionel Messi, not summoned by Lionel Scaloni during the 2022 World Cup won by the Albiceleste. As a reminder, Paris had attracted him in September 2019, first on loan before his final transfer twelve months later for an amount of 50 million euros. Author of 38 goals in 92 games with the Ile-de-France tunic, Mauro Icardi is undoubtedly well aware that his future is no longer on the side of the Parc des Princes, the fault of too much competition symbolized by the recruitment of young Rémois Hugo Ekitike , understudy of Kylian Mbappé who embodies the future of Paris Saint-Germain.
