PSG boss Christophe Galtier has confirmed Argentine striker Mauro Icardi will leave the club this summer after three years in the French capital.
Icardi has increasingly found himself on the fringes of the first team at the Parc des Princes, making just ten Ligue 1 starts last season as PSG headed for their eighth league title in the past ten years.
At a press conference ahead of PSG’s match against Montpellier, Gautier explained his stance on the future of the former Argentina international:
Mauro Icardi seems to be leaving PSG this summer, after three years at the Parc des Princes
His absence last weekend was due to a purely sporting choice. I saw Mauro at the beginning of the week to tell him that I will limit the group and that I do not want to work with 25 outfield players, it is not possible to have players on the sides, I will not repeat myself.”
Despite remaining firm about his desire to see Icardi leave the club for new pastures this summer, Galtier insisted that PSG support the player in finding his next club:
“The club is working closely with Mauro to find the best possible solution. Mauro has had very little playing time in recent seasons, I think it’s important for him to get back on track. I think it’s important that he gets back into the game.”

“I think in the interest of Mauro and also in the interest of the club we have to find the best possible compromise, that is, a club where he can express his qualities.” He added.
