Ready by Inter Milan, Mauro Icardi could be definitively recruited by Paris Saint-Germain. To do this, the capital's club, which has a purchase option of 70 million euros, is negotiating to lower the bill by 50 million euros.
Mauro Icardi and PSG want to continue their collaboration.
Mauro Icardi (27) definitely at Paris Saint-Germain, is it inevitable? Ready by Inter Milan with a fixed purchase option of 70 million euros, the Argentinian striker has completed a convincing first season (20 goals in 30 matches all competitions) despite the loss of his holder status before the interruption of the championship.
The trend is clear: PSG has made the final purchase of the goal scorer its priority for the next transfer window and, in return, the Albiceleste is well seen to register in the hard Paris. Negotiations between the different parties have started in this direction.
For several weeks, there has been talk of a rebate that the capital's club is trying to obtain in this case. No amount had filtered so far on this subject, but this Thursday, La Gazzetta dello Sport sells the match and reveals that the Parisian sporting director, Leonardo, has proposed Inter the price of 50 M €!
By asking for a reduction of more than 28%, the three-time defending French champion does not go without a dead hand and the Italian media adds, not surprisingly, that the Nerazzurri have refused to go down as low. In normal times indeed, no club would accept such a discount for a player who has overall succeeded in his season. Moreover, Inter recently recalled that the € 70 million initially set for a departure from Icardi represents a fair price given its release clause of € 110 million.
Who to put more than 50 M € on Icardi?
But, in the current context of crisis, with prices pulled down, the PSG may have a hope of achieving its ends. Indeed, Inter has no intention of seeing Icardi remain on his arms after the summer, and the contenders of the South American (Atletico Madrid, Juventus and Naples) are content for the time being shy approaches.
Would one of them be ready to pay more than € 50 million? Nothing is less certain. The initial refusal of the Lombard club is therefore logical but it is not excluded that the Italians will be a little more open to the Parisian proposal in the coming weeks. In any case, negotiations are continuing …
