Ligue Un has started its winter break with PSG's next league match not until January 9 against Lyon.

There is a cup tie against Championnat National Two side Vannes to contend with in the new year, but Messi and co. will likely sit out.

The trio all started PSG's 1-1 draw against Lorient on Wednesday, with Icardi grabbing the last-minute equaliser.

The Argentine has outshone his compatriot Messi in terms of Ligue Un goals this season, with four compared to Messi's one.

But the forward has been embroiled in controversy off the pitch.

He had to patch up his relationship with wife Wanda Icardi after she accused him of cheating and flew to Italy.

Icardi even skipped training to solve the crisis and will now join Wanda in Argentina, with the actress arriving on Wednesday.

Messi, meanwhile, could get the chance to see a mural of himself that was recently unveiled in his home town Rosario.

The image of the former Barcelona star is 100ft tall and depicts Messi in an Argentina shirt with his hand across his heart.
