PSG press review: Icardi, Hamraoui, expected sales …

Seen and read on the PSG in the hexagonal print this Tuesday, April 26, 2022. Mauro Icardi’s decline since his arrival in the summer of 2019, a meeting scheduled between the Parisian leaders and Kheira Hamraoui, four players at the top of the standings for a start, towards a record audience at the Parco dei Principi for PSG-OL.

In today’s edition, The Parisian focuses on the flawed history of Mauro Icardi to PSG. Loan with redemption option Inter in the summer of 2019 the Argentine striker was definitively bought the following summer, after a convincing first season (20 goals scored). But amidst poor performance, physical deformities, injuries and personal problems, the international ofAlbiceleste disappointing for two seasons and “He is expected to leave the club next summer, two years before his contract expires.” Injured to his quadriceps during the warm-up before the match against Angers (3-0), the former Inter Milan could return to the field before the end of the season, but it remains to be seen if he will be used by Maurizio Pochettino. In fact, the 29-year-old has only started ten times League 1, for 5 goals. His last success dates back to 22 December against FC Lorient (1-1). It therefore seems a long time ago that his commitment in summer 2020 for four seasons in exchange for 50 million euros, plus 8 million bonuses and an estimated annual salary of 10 million euros, was considered a bargain for PSG. “

The beginning of the end for Mauro Icardi it was there Champions League Final 8 in Lisbon in August 2020. The coach of the time, Thomas Tuchel, “does not taste the state of form of his attacker (…) burdened by this episode, Icardi sinks into doubt. ” In addition, the Argentine faces greater competition in its sector with the presence of Kylian Mbappé, Neymar Jr And Leone Messi. Regular seats are therefore rarer. Add to this his personal problems with his partner, Wanda Nara. “Internally we see that the Argentine ‘did not manage’ this personal situation. Today calm seems to have returned to the player’s life. “ If his future seems far away PSG, Mauro Icardi still maintains a good rating in Italy where the Juventus Turin she had tried to enlist him, on loan, last winter. However, “A loan is excluded. Only a definitive departure is possible “concludes LP.

The Ile-de-France newspaper also provides information on the rest of the case Cheira Hamraoui. On the eve of the first leg semi-final Champions League front Olympic Lyona fight broke out in training for the Parisiennes between Cheira Hamraoui and three of his teammates (Sandy Baltimore, Kadidiatou Diani And Marie Antoinette Katoto). Therefore, the midfielder did not show up for the trip to Lyon. After this episode, the 32-year-old player “Will be received by its leaders (including Ulrich Rame) to discuss the rest of the season and his career in Paris. “ Since its attack on 4 November, the club has moved forward with caution and “Must always juggle between moral and legal. “ But this time, Cheira Hamraoui he made a mistake by causing the struggle and not showing up for the trip. “These acts open the door to possible disciplinary sanctions. “

For several weeks the Parisian staff had to deal with an unbearable situation with some players not talking to each other. ” Lately, the sports relationship between Hamraoui and his teammates had deteriorated. On April 16, despite the success against Issy (6-1), the former Lyonnaise expressed his anger to the staff, indicating that Katoto Where Diani I wouldn’t give him a lift “relationships LP. A win in Champions League this Saturday (second leg semi-final against OL) could bring back some smiles at the end of the season.

On his side, The group returns to the departures hoped for from PSG during the next summer market window. The Parisian club wants to separate from six to seven players, but four are particularly targeted: Julian Draxler (2024), Leandro Paredes (2023), Layvin Kurzawa (2024) and Thilo Kehrer (2023). As for the 2014 World Champion, he is quite far in the forward hierarchy. While he was satisfied with his situation a PSGthe 28-year-old has finally realized that he had to find a minimum of time to play in order to hope to play World Cup 2022 with Germany. “He will not be in Paris, or after very promising first months, he gradually disappeared (…) The Hertha Berlin, Dortmund And Leverkusen appreciate it, as well as the Sevilla FC. “ He recently underwent meniscus surgery to get ready for next season. With regard to Leandro Paredes, his contract will expire in a year. Recently operated for groin pain, the Argentine wants to be in good shape also to play the 2022 World Cup. After spending 47 million euros in January 2019, Rouge & Bleu would like to recover some money by selling him. His name is often associated with some Italian clubs, including Inter Milan. “Very close to Neymar and above all of Messi, Paredes I don’t know if you want to leave “relationships THE.

For Layvin Kurzawa, the situation is different. Not used since then Champions Trophy (8 minutes), the PSG had asked him to leave last summer, but had to face the player’s rejection. The 29-year-old left-back must therefore relaunch his career. But inside the club, “Someone doubts his willingness to look elsewhere when he still has a two-year contract. “ Approached by OL And Galatasaray during the last few markets, the player dreams of entering England. At the end Thilo Kehrer has never lived up to expectations since his arrival in the summer of 2018. Although he is currently enjoying his best season with the Parisian shirt, the German international maintains a good valuation (between 20 and 30 million euros) on the market , “Which would make for a good sale. It is followed by German and English clubs. “

The sports newspaper reports that the return semi-final of the L’UEFA Women’s Champions Leagueto Park of the Princesbetween PSG And OL it will attract people. In fact, we are heading towards a record attendance in the Parisian precinct with already more than 25,000 tickets sold yesterday morning. Thus, the recent record against the Bayern (27,262 admissions, March 30) will be beaten. “The club hopes to reach 30,000 spectators, to perhaps break the record for a women’s match in France: 30,661 people were at the Groupama Stadium in November 2019 for a Lyon-PSG D1.”
