Icardi was ready to sign for Real in January, reports Don Balon, convinced Perez would follow through on his pre-Christmas assurances that a bid would be lodged.
But the president, upon speaking with Real coach Zinedine Zidane, chose to pull back from negotiations and leave Icardi in Milan. This despite Icardi having given his 'yes' to Real intermediaries in December.
It's now emerged in Argentina and Italy that Manchester United and PSG are also interested in Icardi ahead of the summer transfer window. Super agent Mino Raiola is getting involved in negotiations, enjoying a close relationship with both suitors.
