Desc Mauro Icardi and Maxi Lopez’s feud has nothing to do with football, but more to do with the fact that Icardi stole Lopez’s wife from him. Lopez offered Icardi refuge at his home when the pair played for Sampdoria. He couldn’t have imagined, though, that Icardi would have an affair with Lopez’s wife, Wanda Nara, and eventually marry his partner

[Mauro Icardi speaks after getting called up for Argentina’s upcoming FIFA World Cup qualifying matches] We have the best attack in the world. It is very important for me to be able to play and develop with players like Messi, Dybala, Di Maria and Banega. They have great qualities, they will surely help my game and I intend to return the favour. I think the call-up is a prize for all the work I’ve been doing these years. I want to demonstrate for the national team the same thing that I show with my club

[Mauro Icardi to miss Inter’s pre-season tour as he leaves training camp amid exit rumours] Icardi will return to Milan from the Lugano training camp today. The club and the Argentine striker have made this decision by mutual agreement. Icardi will continue on his path of athletic reconditioning in the coming days but will not take part in the summer tour in Asia.

[Mauro Icardi’s lawyer, Giuseppe Di Carlo, has hit out at Inter for allegedly discriminating against the striker, saying he is suffering psychologically from his ongoing exclusion from the team] At the beginning of August I sent a warning to the club for Icardi to be fully reintegrated to training. In response, I received a formal note from the company stating that he is already in the group, but it is well known he isn’t doing the technical-tactical exercises. He is unilaterally considered to be for sale despite a contract until June 2021 and his declared will to respect it. This is an established practice by other clubs too, but I wonder: is it right? This arbitration can become a question of law for the future. We aim to show that a footballer can’t be treated like that. In my opinion there is no way we can get a resolution, but we want equal treatment with the other Inter players. Now let’s see what kind of response there will be. If Icardi leaves, we will drop the case. Otherwise… He’s suffering from a psychological point of view. It is not normal to suffer discrimination like this: the armband, his absence from the squad photos, the number [being given to Lukaku], missing training

[Di Carlo added that the lawsuit is not about money, insisting that Icardi only wants to return to the Inter squad] I want to clarify that the request for damages is a necessary consequence of the legal action and not a personal initiative by the player. It would’ve been an incomplete document without requesting at least 20 per cent of the salary as compensation. Once you take that action, the issue of compensation becomes obligatory. It’s a situation where money is irrelevant, because what Icardi wants is to be an integral part of the Inter project. How is it possible in two months of pre-season training he hasn’t taken part in a single friendly? Now we must wait up to five days for the tribunal to accept the case and I think they’ll wait until the transfer window has closed on Monday evening. Obviously, if Icardi were to complete a transfer, the legal action would be dropped

[Icardi swapped Serie A side Inter for PSG on an initial season-long loan on Monday’s transfer deadline day] I’m very happy, delighted. It’s a major step in my career, and a great opportunity to join a top club like Paris Saint-Germain. I hope to live great things here. Being able to play alongside these very talented players is amazing. The decision was easy to make, I’ve come to Paris because I wanted to play with them. I know the Argentines obviously, and I know Edinson Cavani. And I have met Neymar Jr. I am proud to become their team-mate. I am a striker, I like to score goals. It’s going to be great to play up front with the amazing attacking players that are in this squad. It’s always special to play against rivals. This is what makes football so great. I have played against Juve, Milan, these are major games. I am looking forward to playing these games in France now. I never played at the Parc des Princes, it will be a first for me. I will be able to tell you what it’s like then!

[New Paris Saint-Germain signing Mauro Icardi has rubbished claims that his marriage to Wanda Nara has caused a long-standing rift with Lionel Messi] I knew [Messi] at Barcelona years ago, I let people talk, these are things we cannot avoid. I do not believe in these stories. I was able to meet him, he is the best player in the world. I appreciate him enormously. Those who know me know who I really am, and that’s all that matters…It’s been seven years [that I’ve been more judged on my personal life than on my game]. Wanda is famous, I am too. But that does not affect my game. Otherwise I would not have played for Inter and scored 150 goals. We try to live our relationship as best as possible. We are both in love. And we do not choose who we fall in love with, it’s like that

[But, after six years at San Siro, he is enjoying a new challenge and is pleased with both the PSG faithful] I got to my seventh year with Inter, my dream was to play in the Champions League with Inter, it came true. We did not win much. We did not win anything but I stayed, I scored goals. And it was time for me to play in a winning team. Joining a team with so many great players is what I wanted. I have just arrived, but when you arrive with an option [to stay permanently], you try to show our best game in order to be bought. So, we’ll see next summer. I was very moved by the fans. Against Strasbourg when I started to warm up, I received an incredible welcome, the whole stadium sang for me, it was spectacular. It never happened to me [before], and it touched me a lot. The competition with Edinson Cavani is healthy. Luckily we both speak Spanish. I would love to play with him, he’s a big player

[Mauro Icardi said he left Inter for Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain to win titles] I came here to play. If you arrive with an option to buy, you know the player has to give his best to ensure the club decides to purchase him outright. We’ll see what happens next summer. I was in my seventh year at Inter and my dream was to play in the Champions League with Inter, which I did last season, but we never won anything. I thought the time had come for me to go to a winning club, one that could challenge for and win titles. It’s time for me to start winning. The truth is that PSG is a squad full of champions and that is what I wanted

People call me a ‘killer’ in the penalty area. I am always ready in the box to score goals. Ever since my debut when very young for Rosario, my objective and obsession has always been to score goals

[Mauro Icardi says that Romelu Lukaku will come good at Inter, despite enduring a trying period at San Siro] It doesn’t seem to me that he’s experiencing a moment of difficulty. In fact, I think he’s started well, scoring a couple of goals immediately. Then he got injured and maybe this raised the usual criticisms because Lukaku represents a big investment for the team, was strongly supported by Antonio Conte and must live up to expectations. But it’s not easy for anyone to play in Italy. Serie A is the most defensive championship in Europe. Maybe he needs a little more time to settle in, but he’s already scored a lot of goals in his career. And he will do it again. It happens to everyone, that you go through a less brilliant moment. Then when you get out of it, you don’t stop

[Icardi, meanwhile, finds himself on loan at Paris Saint-Germain this season] This year, I’m at PSG and my goal is to give my best for this shirt. Then at the end of the season, around May or June, we’ll see what happens. It’s still too early to say anything

I feel good here and I’ve been asked to perform the same role: to score goals, which is what matters most for an attacker and the team. I’ve always been used to pressure, but I think it helps that we’ve almost always won. And when you win, it’s okay. In Italy, instead, a vicious circle had been created in certain journalistic circles where we always ended up talking a little too much about anything concerning me. This is not the case here in Paris

[Ligue 1 holders PSG routed visitors Marseille 4-0 in Paris. Icardi – on loan from Serie A side Inter – started ahead of Edinson Cavani and the Argentine forward opened the scoring in the 10th minute before doubling the lead 16 minutes later] I felt really good tonight. I scored two goals in my first Classique - more than I could have hoped for. We won this big match in style and that’s the most important. 4-0 is a great score and we need to keep working hard to continue getting results like this. Angel Di Maria he supplied me with two great passes to try and score and at the end of the match, we had a good moment with the supporters to celebrate the match together. It was fantastic

[Mauro Icardi believes he can prosper in partnership with Edinson Cavani at Paris Saint-Germain] I’ve known Edi for a very long time, we’ve been in Italy since a long time ago. Edi is an amazing player who has made history in PSG, he’s done so much here. I want to make a contribution here, but it’s the coach who will have to decide [who will play]. Both of us work for the good of the team, that’s what we say all the time to ourselves, on and off the pitch. Edi and I are two strikers, we like to score goals, we can play together if the coach decides, but it’s not up to us to make that decision. In the end, it’s the coach who decides, that’s his job

[Mauro Icardi is doing everything he can to ensure that a season-long loan at Paris Saint-Germain is turned into a permanent £60 million transfer from Inter] We’ll see at the end of the season if I stay. I want to do good things, I’ve come for that, obviously playing for a team like PSG is very important, it’s one of the best teams in the world. It’s a great step in my career. I will do everything to stay here

It was Leonardo who convinced me, I immediately had a different feeling. He called me to convince me to help the club, Leonardo was very important in my choice. He told me that I could return to being an important player in this team after I had been in a complicated situation in Milan. I had other offers but I thought it was nice to come to Paris

I’ve known Edi for a very long time, we’ve been in Italy since a long time ago. Edi is an amazing player who has made history in PSG, he’s done so much here. I want to make a contribution here, but it’s the coach who will have to decide [who will play].

[Mauro Icardi in seventh heaven at PSG after escaping from Inter hell] I realise it is a taboo that she was married to my ex-team-mate, but we fell in love and you do not choose who you fall in love with. I think that having her as my agent is the best decision for my family and career. I did not hesitate. I am someone who treats men and women equally. I have three sons and two daughters but I treat them the same and give them the same gifts. I have been with Wanda for seven years, she is a celebrity and so am I, so we are clearly conscious of what that implies. That does not change my way of thinking or how I play; otherwise, I couldn’t have scored 150 goals at Inter

[Mauro Icardi says he would be happy to stay at Paris Saint-Germain beyond the end of the season, with the French giants having the option to trigger a €70 million transfer clause] I feel well in Paris, for the moment we still haven’t spoken with the club. There are still four months until the end of the season. When the season ends in May, we’ll sit down and talk. If I have the chance to stay I would be happy.

It’s a good moment for me and the team. We played a great first part of the season. With the break we recovered our energy and it was great to start the year this way. I am happy with the work that we’re doing
