PSG-Inter agreement reached on Mauro Icardi?

Paris Saint-Germain are very close to secure Mauro Icardi deal with Inter Milan, according to reports on L’Equipe.

The Argentinian has spent the season on-loan with the Ligue 1 champion who were keen to secure a permanent deal amid conflicting reports in media for former Inter captain.

Now, Italian journalist Nicolo Schira claims PSG president Leonardo has offered €55million plus €5million bonuses with an agreement thought to be close. The initial signing clause were of €70million for the striker, but Inter settled for discounted rate after hefty negotiation.

The Paris-based outfit have reportedly agreed a €190,000-a-week four-year contract with the Argentine which would see him earn in the region of €9million a year. The 27-year-old had been linked to a Serie A return, following the end of the French season, as Juventus and Napoli were reported to be interested in signing the forward.

There were further interest from Premier League clubs Arsenal and Chelsea as well. La Liga contender Real Madrid were also linked with Mauro Icardi negotiation.

Icardi has managed 20 goals and four assists in all competitions this season as PSG were crowned champions following the early cancellation.

Icardi enters two year deal with Inter early this season (till 2021) after joining the club from  Sampdoria in 2013. Immediately after he joined PSG on the last day of 2019 summer transfer.

Reports earlier suggested PSG may not be interested to sign or may not have the resources to sign Mauro Icardi on a permanent basis due to the financial implication of Covid-19. 

Inter were thought to be interested in PSG’s Edison Cavani who is out of contract in this summer. Earlier PSG were willing to keep Cavani in Paris as a cheaper option.

French outlet L’Equipe also claimed Antonio Conte’s side have offered the Uruguayan striker a three-year deal which would take Cavani to the age of 36 by the end of contract.
