Serie A side Inter Milan has confirmed that striker Mauro Icardi has joined French giants Paris Saint-Germain.
“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,” read a statement by Inter.
“The Club thanks the player for the six seasons he spent with us and wishes him the best for his future professional career.”
The 27-year-old joined Inter from Sampdoria in the summer of 2013 for €13m and went on to score 124 goals in 219 games for the Nerazzurri.
However, he failed to win any silverware on the blue half of San Siro and his relationship with the club hierarchy and fans broke down irrevocably in February 2019, when he was stripped of their captaincy.
Icardi has impressed in France, scoring 20 goals in 28 appearances in all competitions since arriving in early September.
