The Italian publication claims that Icardi is having a hard time in Paris, where his playing time has been reduced after Lionel Messi’s arrival this summer.

Messi, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe are the top three picks at the Parc des Princes, meaning Icardi have often been a replacement when the aforementioned trio are in shape.

However, they add that United can face competition from Juventus – with the Italian giants monitoring the 28-year-old’s situation.

As reported by Sportsmail, Barcelona are interested in Cavani – with the Uruguayan also eager to move, but it all depends on the temporary manager Ralf Rangnick.
