MAURO ICARDI is keen on a switch to Manchester United this summer, with boss Erik ten Hag desperate to land a striker.
The Argentina hitman, 29, has been told he is not wanted at megabucks PSG and reports in his homeland from TyC Sports indicate that the star is open to a moving to Old Trafford on loan, with a view to permanent deal.
Despite rumours the pair are heading for a divorce, his agent and wife Wanda Nara is still involved in discussions over his next club.
Icardi is also wanted by Galatasaray, with Nara meeting representatives of the Turkish club three times.
With Anthony Martial injured and Cristiano Ronaldo seemingly still having one eye on the exit door, Ten Hag is very much in the market for a striker.
He has so far been frustrated in his efforts to land Dutch midfielder Frenkie de Jong from Barcelona.
Ten Hag has signed only Christian Eriksen, full-back Tyrell Malacia and centre-back Lisandro Martinez.
Icardi has been bombed out of the first team squad and told to train on his own by new PSG boss Christophe Galtier.
With Kylian Mbappe, Lionel Messi and Neymar in the French champions’ front line, Icardi is not likely to get much, if any, playing time in Paris.
Galtier said: “I told him that I want to reduce the size of the squad and not work with 25 outfield players.
“The club is working closely with Mauro to find the best possible solution.

“He’s had very little game time and I think it would be best for him to get back up and running.”
United’s bid to land 33-year-old Bologna striker Marko Arnautovic illustrated just how much Ten Hag believes the club need extra firepower.
