French champions Paris Saint-Germain have confirmed they have signed striker Mauro Icardi on a permanent deal from Internazionale.
Icardi, 27, joined PSG in September on a season-long loan with a buy-out option.
“The Argentina international (eight caps), who also holds an Italian passport, has signed a four-year deal with the capital club until 30 June 2024,” PSG said in a statement. “The Rosario-born player is the 16th Argentinian player in the history of PSG, and has made 31 appearances for the Rouge et Bleu in the 2019-2020 season, picking up a Ligue 1 winner’s medal, scoring 20 goals and providing 4 assists.”
Inter also released a short statement: “The club thanks the player for the six seasons he spent with us and wishes him the best for his future professional career.”
He has been competing for a place in the side with Uruguay striker Edinson Cavani, PSG’s all-time top scorer, whose contract expires on 30 June.
