Leonardo Turns Down Juventus’ Swap Proposal for Mauro Icardi


The January transfer window opens in a few days, with Paris Saint-Germain on duty looking to release players with no future and a big team. One of the players reportedly on the roster is striker Mauro Icardi.

Mauro Icardi has never been able to hold the position of Center striker, and now that Kylian Mbappé is taking over the role this season, Icardi has become an expandable piece. As a result, Juventus applied for a move to Argentina.

Reports suggest the Serie A team have offered midfielder Arthur a contract for the Icardi transfer. However, Gazzetta Dello Sport (via Canal Supporters) reports that PSG sporting director Leonardo has denied the allegations.

Italian media have also suggested that Leonardo could be released on Icardi if the deal is a loan with a view to buying a clause attached to it. Icardi has a contract until 2024 and has played 20 games this season, scoring five goals for PSG.
