OYOGist.com has learned that Paris Saint-Germain have confirmed the permanent signing of Mauro Icardi from Inter Milan for a fee of £45million plus £7.2million in bonuses. The former inter Milan player spent the season on loan with PSG, scoring just 20 goals and four assists in 31 appearances. And he has now put pen to paper on a permanent deal keeping him at PSG until 2024.
Inter recognised that due to the current situation with the coronavirus pandemic, it was fair to lower their asking price. Inter have long wanted to sell the Argentine.
A statement from PSG’s official website confirmed the signing on Sunday morning, saying: “Paris Saint-Germain are pleased to announce the signing of Mauro Icardi’s purchase option. The 27-year-old striker was loaned in 2019-2020 by Inter Milan.
“The Argentinian international was linked to Arsenal and Chelsea but seems he has decided to remain in Paris which serves as a huge blow for the English teams.
