The Story Of Mauro Icardi; The Footballer Who Married The Ex-Wife Of His Close Friend & Teammate

It is no surprise that Mauro Icardi is one of the most disliked footballers on the planet. More than once he exchanged insults with the late Diego Maradona because the Argentine legend was not impressed by the fact that Icardi married the wife of his friend and former teammate shortly after they were divorced.

Icardi was so controversial that while he was captain at Inter Milan, the club's ultras once displayed a banner calling the striker a liar and arrogant.

"Icardi is a liar and we would like that our captain were not so arrogant to have invented an episode. Icardi doesn't know what respect is."

"A guy like him can not wear the captain's armband. Take off the cuff, clown," they said.

Despite being a very good striker, the one thing Icardi is will be most known for is the controversial saga where he married the ex-wife of his close friend and teammate, Maxi Lopez.

Icardi and Lopez first knew each other at Barcelona. Both Argentine players then ended up at Sampdoria together and at that time, Maxi Lopez was married to Wanda Nara, a very beautiful Argentine model, and TV personality.

Lopez would always invite Icardi to their home and also on their family vacations because he considered the young and handsome striker a dear friend.

But then Maxi's relationship with the mother of his three boys, Wanda Nara, began to hit the rocks. After they divorced, she left Italy and returned to Argentina.

Shortly after that, she began dating Mauro Icardi, and they eventually got married.

This destroyed the friendship the striker had with Maxi Lopez and that is why many people dislike him today.

Young, rich and handsome, Icardi could've married any woman he wanted, but he chose the wife of his friend, Wanda Nara.

He made her his agent and he became the step father to the three boys Lopez had with her.

To make matter worse for Lopez, he did not get custody of his boys and barely gets to see them grow into the fine young men they're becoming.

Icardi and Wanda Nara gave birth to two beautiful daughters to make their children 5.

Today, karma seems to be catching up with Icardi as it is believed that his marriage with Wanda Nara has hit the rocks.

A week or so ago, his wife made a post on her Instagram story which suggested that the striker has cheated on her and has probably ruined their family.

"Another family you destroyed because of a sl**," she posted.

Not long after that, she posted another picture that told the whole story.

"Good day, I like my hands better without a ring," she posted.

It is no longer a secret that their marriage is in serious trouble and one of the main reasons why Icardi missed PSG's win in the UCL yesterday night was because of his marital problems.

It is believed that Wanda Nara has left the house with the 5 children and Icardi is now all alone.

"What goes around comes around," they say. The striker is currently not getting any sympathy from the football world as everyone seems to be watching as 'Karma' deals with him.
