Striker Mauro Icardi will almost certainly sign a long-term PSG contract from this summer, thereby ending the seven-year relationship with Inter.
PSG, Inter reached agreement on Icardi case
According to European media, PSG will pay 66 million USD to buy Icardi from Inter. This price is about $ 5 million lower than the broken purchase clause of the 2019-2020 loan season.
Inter to lower prices because Icardi does not needs to get back. In addition, the PSG’s agreement to pay cash is also of great significance in the context of the financial crisis of Covid-19. Initially, PSG intended to change players with money.
After reaching an agreement with Inter, PSG needs to negotiate with Icardi about personal terms. The two sides still have problems with bonuses.
In the opposite direction, Inter can welcome Edinson Cavani. The Uruguayan striker is out of contract with PSG and left free.
During his season with PSG on loan, Icardi scored 20 goals in 31 matches. This achievement contributed greatly to the Ligue 1 championship and the ticket to the Champions League quarter-finals. Because the French Government banned football until the end of August, the Ligue 1 Organizing Committee had to finish the tournament 10 times early. PSG is recognized as the champion by 12 points compared to the second-ranked team in Marseille.
The early Ligue 1 ending PSG did not need to risk playing in the season but also took the opportunity to rub in preparation for the Champions League quarter-finals. According to UEFA, the Champions League starts again in August, after the end of the national championships. Unlike Ligue 1, four English Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, and Bundesliga are all coming back.
Former captain of Inter
Icardi‘s a former Inter captain and has scored 124 goals for the Nerazzurri, ranking eighth among the best strikers in the history of the team. However, in February 2019, he was stripped of his captaincy. Inter has not yet announced the official reason, but sources confirm the BLD black-striped shirt team has discovered him “turn up on” with Juventus.
After being deprived of the captain’s armband, Icardi refused to play, citing a reason for a knee injury. Inter side took him to a test in the neutral medical center and confirmed Icardi had no injuries.
The Argentine striker was left out of the plan by Inter and only returned during the end of the season. Icardi was pushed to PSG on loan by the Giuseppe Meazza team in the summer of 2019 after Inter recruited Romelu Lukaku from MU. Icardi has 20 goals in 31 matches for PSG this season in all competitions.
PSG once asked Inter Milan to lower Mauro Icardi
Icardi striker docked in PSG last summer on a short-term contract until the end of the 2019/20 season from Inter Milan. The striker born in 1993 has played quite well: 20 goals in 31 appearances on all fronts, combining very well with Neymar and Kylian Mbappe in the attack.
PSG has the right to buy Icardi if it accepts 70 million euros. With what the 27-year-old is doing, it makes perfect sense that the Prince Park Stadium team wants to sign a long-term contract with Icardi, especially in the context that Cavani will leave at the end of this season when the contract with PSG matures. But the problem is that PSG said that 70 million euros are the price too high.
