Real Madrid are looking for a striker this window. Argentinian striker Mauro Icardi has reportedly been offered to the Los Blancos.

Karim Benzema is one of the, if not the best centre forward in the world right now. He was instrumental in Real Madrid’s Champions League triumph, scoring hattricks against Chelsea and PSG. However, he is on the wrong side of 30. The Frenchman will need some rotation to be at his best during the season. Moreover, Madrid will also need a deputy if he is not fit.

Mariano Diaz has played in that role. However, he is not up to the standard Real Madrid demand and looks to be on the way out of the Bernabeu this window. Icardi has been offered to the defending La Liga champions.

Will Icardi Move To Madrid?

Mauro Icardi has had a turbulent professional career up to this point, to say the least. His time with Inter Milan saw him once establish himself as one of the top strikers in Europe. Before things went south a few years ago, the Argentine international had attained the rank of club captain at the San Siro. 

However, there was some friction between Wanda Nara (his wife and agent and the club hierarchy) which saw him lose the armband and a position in the squad. Icardi later joined PSG on loan three years ago, where he had a respectable season.

However, since finalising his permanent transfer to PSG a couple of years ago, his reputation has suffered greatly. Icardi has become a benchwarmer for PSG and is nowhere near the national team either. The Parisians are in a rush to offload him before the summer transfer window closes. 

Icardi’s future has thus been the subject of much speculation, with Manchester United among the teams expressing an interest in signing him. But they seem to be working on the Antony deal at the moment. Icardi’s camp has talked to Madrid over a potential move. It remains to be seen how his fate pans out.
