Icardi PSG Neymar

PSG with their first major signing of the summer

Paris Saint-Germain made their first major signing for this summer as they reached agreement with Mauro Icardi to make his stay permanent.

The 27-year-old Argentinian forward has spent this season on a loan at Paris Saint-Germain and according to Sky Italy Inter and PSG have agreed a deal worth €57m (£51.2m).

The Parisians have agreed to pay the price Inter set for their striker plus €7m in add-ons, to make the transfer permanent.

The transfer has an expiring date as Paris Saint-Germain have to finalise the transfer by May 31.

However, Icardi's price was set much higher (€70m), but with the ongoing worldwide financial crisis it dropped significantly.

On Friday, Inter sporting director, Piero Ausilio said: “Icardi wants to stay at PSG and we are in talks to make that happen.”

Icardi joined Inter in 2013 and he had several great seasons with the Nerazzurri, as he became Serie A top scorer in 2015 with Luca Toni on 22 goals. However, ever since Icardi joined Paris Saint-Germain last year it seemed unlikely to return to Inter.

Argentinian forward was left out from the team under Antonio Conte's management as he could not manage to impress him, but things look different in Paris.

This season Icardi made 20 appearances in the Ligue 1, scoring 12 goals and assisting three times. He also managed to score 5 goals in all 6 appearances in the Champions League.
