Paris Saint-Germain have announced that they have made Argentine striker Mauro Icardi's loan move from Inter permanent, securing the deadly finisher's services through to June 2024.

The 27-year-old Argentina international (eight caps), who also holds an Italian passport, signed a four-year deal with the capital club until 30 June 2024.

Like a glove

Icardi had an impressive first season in Paris, slotting right into the Thomas Tuchel's side and keeping the club's all-time top scorer Edinson Cavani out of the starting line-up for long periods with impressive performances that saw him end the curtailed season with 20 goals and four assists in 31 appearances in all competitions - not to mention a Ligue 1 Conforama champion's medal.

The deal could see Cavani - who almost left the club in the winter transfer window with Icardi blocking his return to the first team after injury - finally make the move out of the Parc des Princes after seven glorious years, with Icardi clearly deemed fit to shoulder the goal-scoring burden the Uruguayan legend has taken up over the years.

oh and another thing...

The native of Rosario will be subject to an 'anti-Juventus' clause - insisted on by Inter as part of the terms of his sale - that will see the Milan club pocket a cool €15m should Icardi be sold by PSG to a Serie A club.
