French champions Paris Saint-Germain have confirmed they have signed striker Mauro Icardi on a permanent deal from Internazionale.

Icardi, 27, joined PSG in September on a season-long loan with a buy-out option.

“The Argentina international (eight caps), who also holds an Italian passport, has signed a four-year deal with the capital club until 30 June 2024,” PSG said in a statement. “The Rosario-born player is the 16th Argentinian player in the history of PSG, and has made 31 appearances for the Rouge et Bleu in the 2019-2020 season, picking up a Ligue 1 winner’s medal, scoring 20 goals and providing 4 assists.”

Inter also released a short statement: “The club thanks the player for the six seasons he spent with us and wishes him the best for his future professional career.”

Icardi scored 20 goals in 31 matches in all competitions before the season was officially cancelled on 30 April with 10 league games remaining due to the Covid-19 crisis.

He has been competing for a place in the side with Uruguay striker Edinson Cavani, PSG’s all-time top scorer, whose contract expires on 30 June.
