PSG sign Mauro Icardi permanently for €57 million

According to reports, Paris Saint-Germain have agreed terms with Inter on €57 million including add-ons to keep Mauro Icardi at the Parc de Princes. The 27-year-old's contract at PSG was set to end on May 31.


Icardi has spent the season at PSG, being left out of the Inter squad ever since Antonio Conte joined the club, seeing him as a possible distraction to the squad given his previous conflicts with the club and the club's ultras due to his wife, who is also his agent.


Inter's sporting director, Piero Ausilio, confirmed the deal, saying "Icardi wants to stay at PSG and we are in talks to make that happen."


Icardi has scored 20 goals and provided four assists in 31 games in all competitions for PSG this season, and proved to be a very smart loan signing, essentially replacing the departing Edinson Cavani. In his first ever Ligue 1 season, Icardi is currently 6th in the top goalscoring charts, with 12 Ligue 1 goals, and it is notable that he has played less games than everyone before him, apart from fellow teammate Neymar. Inter were quick to replace Icardi, bringing Romelu Lukaku last summer, who has taken a liking to the Serie A, already scoring 17 goals in 25 Serie A games this season.


It seems as if Icardi's time at Inter is well and truly over, with the Argentine scoring 124 goals in 219 appearances for the Nerazzurri during his time at the club.
