Mauro Icardi is no longer an Inter player and has joined Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain on a permanent basis, the Nerazzurri have confirmed via a statement on their official homepage.

What has been widely reported this week that the former Sampdoria and Barcelona striker is on the verge of completing a move to France, has now been made official.

Inter released a statement thanking the player for his time at the club these past 6 seasons and wished him good luck in the future.

“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.

“The Club thanks the player for the six seasons he spent with us and wishes him the best for his future professional career” the statement reads.

No sums have been mentioned in the statement but it it has been widely reported that Inter will cash in €50 million now and will receive an additional €8 million in easily achieved add-ons.

Several other reports also state that should PSG sell Icardi to an Italian club during the next two transfer windows, they will have to pay an additional €15 million to Inter.

Further reports state that in addition to this, should PSG win the Champions League whilst Icardi is at the club the Nerazzurri will receive even more money.
