Mauro Icardi: why does Messi want him out of PSG and who is his replacement?

The story and toxicity between Messi and Icardi has been something that has been in the media for a long period of time.

Born in Rosario Argentina and spending the youthful stage at Barcelona is one thing they both have in common but a lot divides them. Lionel Messi's recent move to PSG means they will be teammates again and they.

It was said that Lionel Messi wants the club to include him in a swap deal with Barcelona. It was obvious Messi will want to get rid of Icardi and you can guess his replacement. Yeah, Sergio Aguero. Aguero has been roommate with Lionel Messi over the years in Argentina national team. 

He moved to Barcelona this season in an attempt to make the dream of being teammates at the club level come true but unfortunately Lionel Messi left for PSG before he could even make his debut. 

There has not been any tangible reason why Messi and Icardi are at loggerhead but he's obviously the reason he was rarely called up for the Argentina team and it's Lionel Messi that dictates who makes the team in Argentina.
