Mauro Icardi wanted by AC Milan in shock transfer from PSG to partner ex-Inter star with Zlatan Ibrahimovic up front

AC MILAN are reportedly interested in signing Mauro Icardi who the club see as the ideal strike partner for Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Icardi, 27, has been identified by Milan as the man to help fire them into the Champions League, according to A BOLA.

Milan also see him as not only an ideal partner for current hitman Ibrahimovic, 39, but also his successor when the Swede finally hangs up his boots.

Icardi left Milan's bitter rivals Inter to join PSG back in May.

The Argentinian initially joined the French giants on a season-long loan but the deal was made permanent this summer.

He scored an amazing 20 goals in just 31 matches in all competitions during his loan spell at the club.

His time in France was nearly cut short when reports claimed PSG planned to terminate his loan deal early after his wife Wanda Nara claimed he wanted to leave when his deal expired at the end of the season.

A BOLA also report that Nara, who acts as his agent, is the reason he is open to a move back to Italy as she is keen to go back.

She was instrumental to his departure from Inter when she responded to some backlash her husband had been getting.

Her remarks led to him being stripped of the club captaincy, which he was furious about and he in turn refused to play in a Europa League clash against Rapid Vienna.

His relationship with the fans also deteriorated when Icardi claimed he threatened a Nerazzurri Ultras group with “100 criminals from Argentina” after a skirmish in 2015.

In turn, Inter fans held banners calling Icardi “a piece of vile s***” before a clash against Cagliari — and applauded when he missed a penalty.

He has also been linked with a move to the Premier League with Chelsea said to be interested in his signature
