Following a billboard season with Inter Milan, in which he netted 22 league goals and led Serie A along with Verona striker Luca Toni, Mauro Icardi has earned the right to parner Lionel Messi on the front cover of FIFA16.

Having figured alongside him in the virtual world, would Icardi consider partnering Messi in the real one?

“Yes, but only with Argentina,” Icardi told Italian magazine Sportweek.

“Even then, I’ve only been called up once, and that was two years ago.

“It’s true that when I play FIFA, I play as Barcelona. I used to go with Mourinho’s Inter, the one that won the treble.”
