Monza coach Stroppa deflects when asked about PSG’s Icardi

Giovanni Stroppa was vague when asked about the possible arrival of Paris Saint-Germain forward Mauro Icardi to Monza.

The 29-year-old Argentinian has heavily fallen out of favour in the French capital and has essentially been frozen out of the squad. PSG are now looking for buyers for Icardi and one club who’s been dreaming of a move for the former Inter man is Silvio Berlusconi’s Monza, who are preparing to kick off their first ever Serie A campaign.

Speaking in a press conference today, Stroppa was vague when asked about Icardi and a possible move to Monza.

“Regarding those who are to arrive, I don’t think I have to speak.”

The Monza coach then gave his thoughts on the arrivals of Pablo Mari from Arsenal and Andrea Petagna from Napoli.

“I’m happy with the two of them, they come to give experience and that physicality that was needed. Let’s see what will happen, I am much more satisfied than a few weeks ago.”

Icardi has not had a particularly positive time in Paris following his €50m move from Inter in September 2019. He’s only scored 38 goals in 92 appearances for the club, failing to replicate the form he showed during his time with the Nerazzurri.

A return to Serie A does look fairly likely for the 29-year-old and updates are expected in the coming weeks.
