Hard to believe after his last two complicated years in Paris, between private setbacks with his ex-wife and agent Wanda Nara and more than irregular performances on the meadow, but Mauro Icardi is doing wonderfully and is enjoying an idyllic stay. in Turkey to reconnect with the paths of the nets. The 29-year-old Argentinian, on loan from PSG to Galatasaray, is having a very good campaign in the Süper Lig, posting a total of 5 goals, 4 assists in seven league games. The Turkish club is also at the top of the standings this season after 17 matchdays: a return to the throne that brings smiles to millions of supporters, while Cimbom ended last season in a very sad 13th position. His performance in the Istanbul derby on Sunday evening against Fenerbahçe (3-0) is the perfect symbol of this: “I’m very happy because I scored. It’s normal, it’s my duty as a striker. On the other hand, I’m happy because the team won happily. When I came to Turkey, they told me it was the most important game. We are happy to have won. I came here harboring this feeling. My teammates are also very happy, I’m happy for them too. We’re having a great party together right now.” declared the main interested party, author of a goal and an assist during the 17th day of the championship which opposed the two Turkish leaders.

“Every time Icardi has played, he has been decisive. His first feat in Istanbul is the double against Besiktas, he is really a man of the big meetings. First derby in Istanbul, he planted a double with legendary goals. Yesterday against Fenerbahçe, we didn’t know if he was going to play as his last match was before the World Cup, he was in Argentina, he had problems with Wanda Nara, his presence in the eleven was uncertain. He came on in the 75th minute: first ball, he gave a decisive pass and in the very last moments, he scored a goal as a great striker.entrusts us Ahmet Rayman, Franco-Turkish journalist in Istanbul for TRT French. As a reminder, the former Inter player was greeted by a crowd of jubilant supporters at Istanbul’s Atatürk airport, 24 hours before the transfer window closed in Turkey in September.

It is unanimous in Turkey

Joining one of the great Turkish clubs is never an easy thing in a country rocked by football, where groups of supporters do not hesitate to set fire to the stadiums, what is more in Istanbul in a city where reigns an important historical rivalry between the clubs of Beşiktaş JK, Galatasaray, Fenerbahçe and even the younger Başakşehir. The adaptation was however not so difficult for Mauro Icardi, when his confidence was in sharp decline after a disappointing last season in the Parisian jersey (30 games, 4 goals). The supporters accepted him with open arms, to the point of quickly becoming the icon of the 53,000 faithful of the Nef Stadyumu: “despite the few matches played, he is so efficient, important and beautiful to see that he convinced all the supporters. Today there is not a single supporter unhappy with his performances. Icardi loves the supporters and the supporters love him so the story is super beautiful. Even the greatest observers of Turkish football, consultants, columnists, they are unanimous on Icardi. He really conquered everyone, it’s a crazy hype thing. In general, fans in Turkey are very demanding with the big names, they don’t forgive easily.continues Ahmet Rayman who compares the Argentinian striker to a “rock star”taking as an example his celebration on Sunday evening when he came to provoke Fenerbahçe supporters “like Messi at the Bernabeu” by showing his jersey in the stands of the Şükrü Saracoğlu stadium.

The president of the Turkish club Dursun Özbek will in any case do everything to keep his player: “Galatasaray made Icardi’s loan a real success. PSG pays a very large part of his salary. His salary cost for Galatasaray is 750,000 euros. He also adapted very quickly to the team. I don’t think his club will want to sell him. It’s not enough that Galatasaray wants to transfer him. He is an accomplished footballer. Depending on the economic conditions that day and the demand in front, Galatasaray will make the transfer if there is harmony between the two., he launched at the world football economic forum. A way of already putting pressure on PSG and the future price claimed:“if we ask the supporters, everyone will say yes, but there is the economic reality, Icardi’s desire to stay… What is certain is that he will stay until the end of the season and this summer, the soap opera Icardi risks causing a lot of ink to flow in Turkey. Personally, from the bottom of my heart, I want him to stay because it’s been a very long time since we’ve seen a striker of such quality in this championship.then concluded Ahmet who is following the season of the Istanbul club very closely.
