Argentina International striker Mauro Icardi has joined Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint Germain on a season long loan deal.

The 26 years old signed a new deal with Inter Milan on Monday before completing his move to the French club ahead of the transfer closing window deadline in France.

It is also gathered that PSG has an option to buy at the end of the 2019/2020 season for €70 million next summer.

Icardi has fallen short of making the starting XI of Antonio Conte’s Inter Milan squad due to the signing of Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez from Manchester United this summer.

It is also gathered that both Juventus and Roma were interested in signing the striker during the summer transfer window.

According to Associated Press reported last week, Icardi is suing Inter for discrimination, claiming 1.5m euros (£1.38m) in damages and to be allowed back into the first-team fold.

Icardi claims he was excluded from specific training sessions for forwards, directed by Conte.

The 26-year-old, who joined Inter from Sampdoria in 2013, was stripped of his role as captain by former boss Luciano Spalletti earlier this year.

Icardi scored 17 goals in 37 appearances in all competitions last season.
