Mauro Icardi Completes Loan Transfer From Inter Milan To PSG

Mauro Icardi has completed a sensational deadline day move to Paris Saint-Germain from Inter Milan.

Striker Icardi will initially join PSG on a season loan but the Ligue 1 champions will have the option to make the deal permanent for £63.22million next summer.

Argentina international Icardi fell out with Inter Milan after being stripped of the captaincy in February but had to agree a contract extension until 2022 with the Italian club before the deal was completed.

“I’d like to thank Paris Saint-Germain for the confidence they have shown in me,” said Icardi, who will wear the No.18 shirt at the Parc des Princes.

“I will give everything to help my new team go as far as possible in all competitions. Paris Saint-Germain has become an international football powerhouse, attracting some of the greatest players in recent years.

“The momentum is strong in Paris, ambitions are high and I am sure that we have everything here to go even further.

“And I’m really looking forward to playing at the Parc des Princes, a stadium famous for its beauty and passion!”

PSG wanted more cover up front with Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani injured, with Icardi set to partner fellow South American Neymar.

Icardi was given a squad number by Inter this season but hasn’t appeared this season – with former Manchester United  front man Romelu Lukaku leading the line at the San Siro.
