Newcastle set to battle Tottenham, Juventus for Icardi after £300m Saudi takeover – Sporting Life
Newcastle will battle Tottenham and Juventus in the race to sign Paris Saint-Germain star Mauro Icardi, according to reports.
The Magpies’ £300millin Saudi-backed takeover has seen them linked with some of the world’s biggest stars and the Argentine striker is the latest to be added to the list.
Icardi, 28, joined PSG – initially on loan – in 2019 after 124 goals in 219 games for Italian giants Inter Milan.
But with Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and now Lionel Messi ahead of him in the pecking order at the Parc des Princes, game time is hard to come by.

Despite his limited opportunities, Icardi has still managed 36 goals in 72 games.
And as a result, the Magpies are eyeing a move as they look to flex their new financial muscles, according to Calciomercato.
However, they will reportedly face stiff competition from Spurs and Juve who are both said to be keen.
Despite managing to keep Harry Kane in the summer, the North Londoners face having to find a replacement with a departure seeming more and more inevitable for the mis-firing forward.
