PSG became the new club of the 26-year-old which he moved on the basis of an annual loan. In the French capital he will share the place with Edinson Cavani, who has been the leading attacker of the French giant in recent years.
The visions of Mauro Icardi future were much different. The Argentinean dreamed of moving to Juventus, with which he could play at his former club where according to the footballer he was not treated professionally. Ultimately, the offer from Turin did not come and the 28-year-old will have to be content with what is left filling the attack position in Paris Saint Germain.
Thank you Paris Saint-Germain for your confidence. I will do everything in my power to make my new team go as far as possible in all competitions. PSG has become a giant of international football which in recent years has attracted many very good players – said Icardi.
