Argentine striker Mauro Icardi appeared without significant obstacles in his adaptation process with Paris Saint-Germain. In fact, the 26-year-old player performed brilliantly, getting more productive week after week. However, Paris Saint-Germain was reluctant to rush to permanent the status of the former Sampdoria.
As is known, Mauro Icardi did join PSG in the final seconds ahead of the closing of the transfer market last summer from Inter Milan. He was recruited by Les Parisiens through a one-season loan contract. Clearly, it is not easy for the 26-year-old figure to compete with top players after Edinson Cavani, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.
But no one guessed, Mauro Icardi was able to play brilliantly. The Argentine striker has scored 13 goals in 16 matches he has played in all competitions along with Paris Saint-Germain. No wonder that the discourse of the French Ligue 1 defending champion emerged to redeem the player permanently.
However, the claim was denied by Leonardo as the club’s sporting director. Instead of rejecting this opportunity, PSG was only reluctant to rush to make a decision, because there were still six months left before the decision was made.
“Icardi really helped this team, he worked hard. Icardi understood well what the main purpose of PSG was to recruit him. He also realized there was competition with other players in the core squad. What he did was according to our wishes, namely scoring goals. Six months long time in football. Making it sweet is not our priority right now. Today, the situation is still calm, “Leonardo was quoted as saying by Italian Football.
Actually, Paris Saint-Germain is not bothered with the official price set by Inter Milan for the Argentine. Inter Milan are believed to have set a price of 70 million Pounds for Icardi, if indeed PSG intends to buy it permanently. All decisions can still be negotiated. Wanda Nara, wife and agent of Icardi, will decide which is best for her beloved husband.
But clearly, it seems like returning to Inter Milan is not a good option for the player, he was already hated by the Nerazzurri supporters.
