Mauro Icardi days are numbered at PSG and that the Parisian club has Cristiano Ronaldo on the agenda as a replacement. L'Equipe bases itself on the predilection of Massimiliano Allegri, the new coach of the Juventus, for Icardi as an offensive reference.
And, apparently, the DT would have no problem in letting go of the Cristiano Ronaldo, franchise player of the Italian multi-champions. The swap is, for now, a speculation. Neither from the Parisian club nor from Turin gave credit to the information or confirmed the negotiations.
What is certain is that the future of the Cristiano Ronaldo, whose contract with the Italian club expires in June next year, should be decided in the next few hours.
Two days ago, the captain of the Portuguese national team posted a photo on his Instagram account with the caption "Decision day".
Everything seemed to indicate that this week it would be resolved whether or not the Portuguese will continue playing at Juventus after a disappointing season at a collective level, which ended with the dismissal of the coach, a reference of the club as Andrea Pirlo.
While Cristiano Ronaldo seems to be in the club's plans, the drop in revenues due to the coronavirus crisis affects all European giants equally. And Juventus are speculating on a "Messi plan" to keep the Portuguese striker in their ranks.
That is, freeing up salary quota to be able to renew the contract with the former Real Madrid player and prevent him from leaving this summer at a bargain price. Provided Allegri has him in his plans, of course.
Icardi, meanwhile, is turning a deaf ear to speculation about where he will play next season. He has two goals in two pre-season friendlies and looks refreshed after not being called up by Lionel Scaloni for the Copa America that the Argentine national team managed to lift in Brazil.
In any case, PSG is by far the team that has strengthened most in the transfer market: players such as Sergio Ramos (Real Madrid), Georginio Wijnaldum (Liverpool) and Gianluigi Donnarumma (Milan) have arrived on loan.
