Mauro Icardi has completed a permanent move to Paris Saint-Germain from Inter Milan after PSG exercised their purchase option. Icardi moved to PSG on loan last year after he had off the scenes disputes with Inter’s management and his return looked shambolic.
He has been a regular starter for the Ligue 1 Club ever since his arrival last year and has successfully replaced Edinson Cavani and had a wonderful on-pitch collaboration with Neymar Jr, and Kylian Mbappe, who has been magnificent for PSG this year as well.
Paris Saint-Germain have completed the permanent signing of Mauro Icardi, with Inter receiving €50 million (£45m/$56m) plus an additional €8m (£7m/$9m) in bonuses for the Argentine striker. Icardi, who had been on loan at Parc des Princes since the start of the 2019-20 season, has put pen to paper on a four-year deal, tying him to the French capital club until 2024.

An official announcement from PSG reads, “Paris Saint-Germain are delighted to announce the signing of Mauro Icardi on a permanent deal, following the striker’s loan from Inter Milan during the 2019-2020 season.”
“The Rosario-born player is the 16th Argentinian player in the history of Paris Saint-Germain, and has made 31 appearances for the Rouge et Bleu in the 2019-2020 season, picking up a Ligue 1 winner’s medal, scoring 20 goals and providing four assists,” the letter further read.
Inter Milan Thank Icardi For His Services Towards The Club
Inter also thanked the 27-year-old, who has eight international caps for Argentina, for his previous contributions in Italy, writing, “FC Internazionale Milano announces the transfer of Mauro Icardi to Paris Saint-Germain FC: the striker, born in 1993, has permanently moved to the French club.”
“The club thanks the player for the six seasons he spent with us and wishes him the best for his future professional career.”
