French champions Paris St Germain have signed striker Mauro Icardi on a permanent deal from Inter Milan, the Serie A club said on Sunday.
Argentine Icardi, 27, joined PSG in September on a season-long loan with a buy-out option.
“FC Internazionale Milano announces the transfer of Mauro Icardi to Paris Saint-Germain FC; the striker, born in 1993, has permanently moved to the French club.
“The club thanks the player for the six seasons he spent with us and wishes him the best for his future professional career,” Inter said in a statement.
Icardi scored 20 goals in 31 matches in all competitions before the season was officially concluded on April 30, with 10 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 expired on June 30.
In another news, Arsenal midfielder, Lucas Torreira has disclosed that he would like to end his career at Argentina club, Boca Juniors.
Torreira, who joined Arsenal in the summer of 2018, said he has a strong affection for Boca Juniors.
“I imagine a Copa Libertadores night at the Bombonera wearing Boca Juniors’ shirt,” the Uruguay international told Fox Sports Argentina.
“Right now my head is in Europe, and I want to stay for a while, but I have that desire and dream to go to Boca and not just to retire, but to compete and feel what the Boca world is.”
The 24-year-old added: “My family is big football fans and we Uruguayans watch a lot of Argentine football.
“It’s one of the most important in South America, very passionate, so from a very young age this affection, this love for Boca was born.”
