That said, PSG could accept a lower fee for Icardi as part of an attempt to offload some players in the January transfer window. Abdou Diallo and Rafinha Alcantara could also leave. [L’Equipe – in French]

He told RTL: “I prefer not to speak about my future, but I’m very good here. I don’t regret my decision and have been very happy since day one. I have one year here and I am going to give my all.”
