Icardi is refusing to be sold to just anyone. But with Neymar apparently on the move, he could be used to throw a spanner in the works of Juventus.

According to Italian source La Gazzetta Dello Sport, Mauro Icardi is causing Inter Milan transfer problems. However, he could also be a great asset to damage the transfer strategy of a rival team.

The Italian giants have struggled to find a buyer for the one time Nerazzurri captain. The problem is not so much finding a suiter, but getting the player to agree to the move.

Roma has expressed an interest and the rumored deal was 45 million-plus Edin Dzeko for Icardi. Inter like the idea, but Icardi not so much.

Napoli has been keen to add him to their ranks. But Icardi will not even discuss a move to Naples.

It is believed that his wife Wanda Nara, is having an input in any move due to her work in fashion and television.

There is now a new scenario that may bring a smile to Inter’s face about the Icardi situation. Plus it should be easy to sell both the player and his wife.

PSG have accepted the fact that Neymar is highly unlikely to be in Paris this season. So they are looking for replacements. It is understood that Icardi is on the shortlist.

Selling Icardi to PSG would mean that Juventus would then get stuck with Paulo Dybala. This would put a 70 million Euro dent in Juventus’s transfer fund.

The player does not go to any rival team n the league, and Inter has the cash to make another purchase.

It is understood that Paris appeals to both Mr. and Mrs. Icardi.
