Already deprived of Kylian Mbappé, Paris Saint-Germain will also start the Ligue 1 season without Mauro Icardi. The Argentinian striker, from whom the capital club wants to part ways this summer, is however not injured. Neither voluntarily excluded from the group of 21 Parisians summoned by Christophe Galtier to challenge Clermont on his lawn on Saturday August 6 (9 p.m.) for the resumption of the championship.
L’Équipe ensures that the 29-year-old striker, who took part in his club’s summer tour of Japan in July but did not enter during the Champions Trophy against Nantes (4-0 victory), was not retained so that he can settle private matters.

His absence, this Saturday in Clermont, would it be due to a new episode of the soap opera?
