In his column for Caught offsideRomano also added that Icardi’s situation is complicated as the player is picky about his next destination

“I wrote about Mauro Icardi’s offer to Manchester United, as well as Arsenal earlier this summer, although they preferred to sign Gabriel Jesus. I can now reveal that the Argentinian (has) also been offered at Newcastle. Icardi’s situation is really difficult. PSG want to find a solution quickly, but the player has no intention of accepting unwanted destinations,” Romano wrote.
