Messi and Dybala can play on the flanks and cut inside in a 4-3-3 formation; di Maria could also fill one of these slots, although he's in the squad as midfielder.

Aguero and Higuain are both central strikers and one would play in the middle of that 4-3-3 with one as back up.

So, given that there are 3 options for the wide players in Messi, Dybala and di Maria in the squad, taking Icardi would have meant a 4th and a redundant back-up player.
The point is that Icardi should have been in there instead of Higuain, for the reasons stated in my prior posts.
