'Icardi PSG move not best for me'

The agent of Mauro Icardi has confirmed the Argentine forward had three offers before he eventually chose to join Paris Saint-Germain on loan.

After falling out of favour since last season, Icardi had to get himself a new club for the 2019/2020 season.

In a surprising turn of events, the Argentine striker was unveiled by PSG on deadline day after completing a season-long loan.

Icardi now joins a strikeforce that includes Edinson Cavani, Neymar and Kylian Mbapp, and his agent and wife, Wanda Nara, says PSG was the best offer for him.

"If I waited until the last moment, it's because I had an ace up my sleeve," Nara told Argentine show Morfi Telefe.

"Nobody knew, not even the kids. Mauro packed a small suitcase and left the rest to me.

"The kids go to school in Italy, so we'll live between Milan and Paris. Of the three options we had, PSG was the worst for me, because I have to go back to live in Milan with the kids.

"But I thought of what was best for him. There were many important Italian clubs who wanted him and it would've been easier."
