‘It hurts a lot to live this moment’: Wanda Nara confirms the end of her eight-year marriage to former Inter captain Mauro Icardi a few weeks after the Argentine striker’s signing for Galatasaray
- Wanda Nara has confirmed the end of her marriage to soccer player Mauro Icardi
- Icardi and Nara have been married since 2014 and have a complicated relationship
- The Argentine footballer is on loan at the Turkish Galatasaray
- The 29-year-old was a captain at Inter Milan and was also a player at PSG.
Wanda Nara has confirmed the “painful” news that she and Argentine soccer player Mauro Icardi have broken up after eight years of marriage.
Icardi, 29, is on a one-year loan at Galatasaray in the Turkish Süper Lig from PSG and has made a name for himself as captain of Inter Milan.
Nara, a media personality in her native Argentina, married in Buenos Aires in May 2014. They have two children, Francesca and Isabella.
“It’s a painful moment,” Nara revealed in a Spanish-language announcement on her Instagram stories, as reported by Football Italia. “But given my exposure and the media speculation that is coming out, it is preferable to hear it from me.
‘I have nothing to declare and I do not want to give any details about this separation. Please understand not only for me, but also for our children.’
So far, Icardi has not commented on his updated relationship status on social media platforms as he has previously criticized media gossip about their personal lives.
Nara, 35, also acted as Icardi’s soccer agent and was a key part in negotiating six aspects of his loan to Galatasaray, including access to a 24-hour driver, a chef and home security, according to an earlier story of Sports Mail.
She was also involved in his move to Paris Saint-Germain in 2019, initially as a loan move, before making the move permanent the following year.

Nara’s Instagram post said no further information about the ‘painful’ decision would be shared.
Nara was married to Maxi López since 2008, but their marriage broke up in 2013 after Nara’s affair with Icardi was revealed. Nara had three children with López, before her two daughters with Icardi.
López and Icardi were close friends before the incident, but relations soured. The 38-year-old refused to shake hands with his old friend during two Serie A games in 2014 and 2016.
Nara is the presenter of ‘Who is the mask?’ from Argentina, the localized version of ‘The Masked Singer’, and it is believed that the transcontinental relationship was different for them.
In October of last year, Nara left the family home in Paris after accusing Icardi of irregularities. They then got back together, after fixing a supposed misunderstanding of the situation.
Now, it looks like the couple is officially going their separate ways.
As a football agent, Nara has been an important part of Icardi’s transfers to PSG and Galatasaray.
