Paris Saint-Germain have signed Mauro Icardi from Inter Milan on a permanent four-year deal, the French club have announced.
The striker spent the 2019-20 season in Paris on loan and the French champions have taken their option to sign the Argentine permanently, keeping him in Paris until 2024.
The signing brings closure to Icardi’s soured relationship with Inter, with wife and agent Wanda Nara having initially caused controversy by calling out the club’s players and management on television.
The criticism led to Icardi being stripped of the captain’s armband and the player himself going on strike due to the club’s handling of the situation.
Icardi made his mark on PSG last season, making 31 appearances in the 2019-20 season. He scored 20 goals and provided 4 assists on the team’s road to picking up the Ligue 1 title.
PSG had a 12 point lead on nearest rivals Marseille when the league was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Mauro Icardi signs Paris Saint-Germain contract until 30 June 2024
