Mercato – PSG: An agreement near Mauro Icardi

PSG and Inter are close to reaching an agreement to transfer the Argentine striker to Ligue 1 for € 50 million plus 8 bonuses.

Borrowed by Inter to PSG on the last day of the transfer window last summer with a call option of 70 million euros, Mauro Icardi should stay in the French capital. The two clubs are actually close to finding a deal on the last transfer of the Argentine striker, for a sum of € 50 million plus eight bonuses.

A damages that were revised downwards after negotiations on the Parisian club’s side because of the crisis linked to the coronavirus pandemic, which affects the club’s budget and the players’ financial values.

No longer counting on Icardi after the tensions that emerged last season with the former Masia, Nerazzuri wants to avoid seeing him land with a competing club in Italy, while Juve would be particularly interested in his arrival. Thus, a clause was added to the Paris-Milan agreement: if PSG intends to sell the player this summer to an Italian club, it will have to pay an additional € 15 million to the club trained by Antonio Conte.

For his first season under the order of Thomas Tuchel, Mauro Icardi had a particularly convincing start before marking time and saw Edinson Cavani pass him back in the hierarchy of attackers before the break (no minutes played in the two games against Dortmund for Argentina).

In total, he has scored 20 goals in 31 appearances since his arrival at PSG, and should therefore be able to increase this overall with Red and Blue next season.
