Icardi Reveals Why He Chose PSG
Mauro Icardi has opened up why he chose to join Paris Saint Germain from Inter Milan.
Icardi completed his move from Serie A to Ligue 1 on a season-long loan with PSG having an option to make the move permanent for a reported fee of 65m euros (£59m). The 26-year-old revealed he decided to accept the offer of the French side after previously having doubts about a departure from Milan.
“I’m very happy because it’s a great satisfaction to play in a team like this. Playing in a top team together with great players is a great challenge. This aspect was decisive when PSG contacted me and I decided to accept,” he began.
Icardi will earn €7m plus bonuses the first year, and then €10m plus bonuses if the clause is activated
“I have taken a big step forward in my career and I hope to experience great emotions here. I know all the Argentines and also Edinson Cavani and Neymar. It’s a very special feeling to know that I will play next to them,” he added.
