Will Mauro Icardi become the regular replacement for Edinson Cavani at Paris Saint-Germain this summer? His 12 goals in 20 Ligue 1 matches have convinced the capital’s club to take action to permanently secure its services. A recruit needed when we know that PSG will lose Edinson Cavani, free of any contract at the end of the season. By welcoming the Argentine striker on loan last summer, Paris knew that in June 2020, they would have to pay 70 million euros to keep it in the capital.
But today the Parisian club seeks to negotiate. Yesterday, the Gazzetta dello Sport indicated that the Icardi clan would have made it clear to PSG that it wished to stay in Paris. The newspaper also said that Parisians wanted to take advantage of the current economic context to pay only € 50 million. A sum deemed paltry by Inter. Today, Sky Italia goes further and unveils the concrete offer proposed by Ile-de-France leaders to their Italian counterparts.
PSG has only 7 days left to decide!
According to the media, a Parisian offer has arrived on the table of Inter executives. It would be 50 million euros plus 10 million bonus, “Which are not all easy to reach”, precise Sky. A figure lower than what the clubs had negotiated for the loan with option to buy the player last summer: an option set at 70 million but which has an expiration date! Time is running out for PSG, which has until May 31 to exercise the purchase option.
Date after which the conditions must be renegotiated with the player and between the clubs. Inter and PSG could decide to extend the expiration of the option, but to do so they would also need the player’s consent. Given the offer presented, it seems clear that PSG wants a reduction from the 70 million agreed. It is now up to Inter to decide whether to accept this offer by the end of May, in order to avoid any type of future problems and ensure a successful sale.
