French giants Paris Saint Germain have signed Argentinian striker Mauro Icardi.
The former Inter Milan captain was on loan at the French capital having fallen out with the Italian side. After a moderately average spell on loan, the hitman has now been drafted into the French side on a permanent basis.
The clubs have reportedly agreed to a €50m initial fee with €7m in add-ons depending on the fulfillment of certain clauses in the contract. Icardi was in fine form a year ago in Inter Milan but had fallen out with the club’s hierarchy after a rather cut-throat tete-a-tete over the club’s ambition and status. Inter were no longer ready to look past the player’s brilliant form and shipped him out on loan to PSG while they could decide his future.
It does possess a great loss of a forward with excellent abilities for the Italians, but under Conte, Inter have more than managed to reinforce in that department by signing Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez.
Icardi meanwhile will be replacing the ageing Edinson Cavani, the record goal scorer at PSG. Cavani is expected to leave at the end of the season with Atletico Madrid tipped to sign him.
