Former Italian and Serie A-winning midfielder Cristiano Zanetti explained why Paris Saint-Germain forward Mauro Icardi would be better off with AS Roma over Juventus.
Icardi has been heavily linked with multiple clubs over the past year for a transfer move, including with Juventus. The Serie A giants would be open to a move for Icardi and may consider a swap deal that would send Paulo Dybala to PSG.
Juventus and AS Roma are the lone top seven sides in Serie A with question marks regarding their center-forward depth. While Icardi has been linked with both sides, Zanetti would see the Argentine much more productive with Roma over Juventus, which he detailed why during his talk with the Italian-based outlet TuttoMercatoWeb.
“He doesn’t strike me as a player for Allegri,” Zanetti said. “He seems to me more for Roma. He’s a static one up front and for Mou, he could be a Milito type.”
Icardi recently came out and denied the rumors regarding a potential departure in the upcoming transfer window. Still, PSG can choose to offload the Argentine forward and look for a new starting center-forward in the market.
