Icardi, the PSG, the social controversies, the failed Juve, Wanda and the giraffes. What will happen to Maurito? – Corriere.it

from Simone Golia – Drafting Di Marzio

The Argentine never in Pochettino’s plans: only 5 goals in the season, a lot of bench and a hazy future, but with PSG he has another two years of contract. Meanwhile, he enjoys Africa with Wanda and responds controversially via social media to those who dare to criticize him

Giraffe Manor is a rather exclusive Nairobi boutique hotel. one of the most instagrammed properties in the world, just have a look at the profiles of Mick Jagger, Madonna and tycoon Richard Branson. Mikey and Tanya live there together with their three children, Sala and the twins Kinna and Tisa. I am the fourth generation of the Carr-Hartley family, British born in Kenya. Cost per night? About two thousand euros, but in compensation twelve Rothschild giraffes – endangered species – they can break into guests’ breakfasts and tea hours by popping out the windows with their long necks, waiting for someone to offer syrup-coated balls to eat. All documented in detail also by Mauro Icardi and Wanda Nara, who could not miss such a peculiarity for their eighth anniversary.

Other than the five thousand red roses with which the Argentine showgirl in 2019 filled the San Siro penthouse to reaffirm her love for the attacker to the world. Well, there’s been a lot of water under the bridge since then. Both in private life and on the pitch, with the two who in the last months of 2021 became the protagonists of a real soap opera following his betrayal with the model and singer China Suarez. One more reason to define the last season experienced by the forward as complicated, who last August – after the surprise defeat of the new and stellar PSG against Lille in the French Super Cup – had started the year with a 3 in the report card. part ofTeam, with the newspaper calling it the biggest disappointment of the evening. From the just 47 ‘in the whole Champions League and only 10 games as a starter in Ligue 1. Goal? Five, never so few in career. It’s not easy to find space with Messi, Neymar and Mbapp, so much so that in January Icardi could even return to Italy, to the Juventus that had courted him so many times in the past.

A deal that was released after the French had finally accepted the idea of ​​letting it go on loan and not outright, as they had categorically claimed up to that moment. In exchange, Leonardo had asked for the return of Moise Kean, already a great protagonist the year before in Paris. However, an impossible deal to bring to fruition as the latter – by regulation – could not have worn a different third shirt in the same year after those of Everton and Juve. In 2022 Icardi never scored. The last joy of last December 22nd, on the field of little Lorient. Not exactly what PSG expected two years ago, when they redeemed him from Inter for 50 million euros plus another 8 in bonuses and a contract until 2024. In Paris they had welcomed him the previous summer to the general joy of the fans, ready to embrace those who had scored 29 goals in Serie A the previous year, as much as Immobile but with one penalty less. And the first four months in Paris were stellar, with five goals in the Champions League and nine in the league. Enough to accompany Cavani, the best scorer in PSG history, to the goal.

But things became complicated already in the second season, with Tuchel who saw little of him and who even preferred Choupo-Moting in the Champions League final in Lisbon against Bayern Munich. It is again all chaos around Icardi, therefore, as in the last troubled months with Inter. From 13 February 2019, when the club removed his captain’s armband during the negotiation for a difficult renewal, to forty days without ever being called up by Spalletti. everything changed since then. The team, the championship, the country. Even the goals, dropped dramatically. Meanwhile, Icardi enjoys Africa: Here gorillas, lions and animals respect me more than you, he thundered on social media Against those who criticized him: At 29 and with almost 200 goals, I decide whether to stay or not. But maybe in Paris they don’t think exactly.
