It's non-stop drama keeping up with the Icardis following the arrival of another fresh episode in their dramatic relationship.

The scandals surrounding Wanda Nara and Mauro Icardi’s relationship can’t seem to catch a break.

Wanda Nara who is Icardi’s wife has now been alleged to have been romantically involved with a footballer who was Icardi's teammate at Inter.

Senegal international Keita Baldé, 27, who currently plays for Russian club Spartak Moscow, played alongside Icardi between 2018 and 2019 and is alleged to have met Wanda in Dubai recently according to reports.

"Last night (Tuesday) Wanda argued with Mauro. According to what they tell me from Icardi's environment, she ran away with a football player, Icardi's former teammate, Keita Baldé," reports Spanish journalist Jordi Martin in the program Intruders (America) via AS.

"This footballer, who has been married for 8 months, knows Wanda, there is a crush, and he travels to Dubai to play a game and she escapes to see him. They tell me they stayed in a luxury hotel." he added.

As if that were not enough, Martin also reportedly said that "Wanda and Icardi were trying to reconcile" and that the Galatasaray striker would have learned of this fact "by the bank movements of her card".

 He continued: "I also have the messages, photos and everything he has sent him for private Instagram messages because my own wife sent them to me (obviously I am not going to publish them) I will only publish my contact last night with this girl, and clarify that I did not have any fight with Wanda because we were until 6am in Turkey talking by video call organizing the return of our children. ".

Regarding the Spanish journalist's statements about how Icardi would have learned of an alleged infidelity,  the former Inter skipper was quoted to have said via a post: "I am also going to clarify that Wanda does not use my card at all because she took her own from an account we have in Argentina."

Icardi also went ahead to post screenshots of his messages to Baldé's wife with further rumours of Wanda’s affair yet to emerge.

The 29-year-old Argentine striker is currently on loan at Galatasaray from french champions PSG having failed to convince Christophe Galtier about getting first team opportunities this season.

However, he has been impressive for the Turkish giants this campaign netting six times in nine appearances this season while creating four assists in the Super Lig.

Galatasaray are currently four points clear at the top of the summit ahead of second-placed Fenerbahce.

Icardi will have another opportunity to add to his goal tally this season as he is expected to return to action on Sunday, January 29, when his side faces 12th-placed Giresunspor in the Super Lig.
