In the past few hours Paris Saint Germain sporting director Leonardo has made contact with Inter with regard to the purchase of Mauro Icardi according to a report from Italian broadcaster Sport Mediaset.

Icardi is currently out on loan at the newly crowned French champions, who have an option to sign him up on a permanent basis for a sum of €70 million, which could rise up to €85 million in the event that they go on to sell him to another Italian club.

The signs that Paris Saint Germain will take up the option to buy are growing increasingly positive and as a result Inter chief executive Giuseppe ‘Beppe’ Marotta is already thinking about how to spend that money.

As per the report, Marotta is ready to start making moves for Brescia’s Sandro Tonali and Fiorentina’s Federico Chiesa, as he wants to increase the contingent of Italian players on Inter’s books.
