PSG sporting director Leonardo comments the recent rumors linking Argentine striker Mauro Icardi with a move to AC Milan.
In the last few days the name of Mauro Icardi has been linked with a potential move to AC Milan. According to rumors, the Argentine forward is eager to return to Italy and would love to join the Rossoneri.
Former AC Milan sporting director Leonardo, now currently at PSG, answered some questions on the future of the French club’s stars and the name of Icardi popped up.
“We signed on loan a player who has scored 25 goals per season. We observed him well and decided to confirm his stay on a permanent transfer. Everyone at the club agreed. We had an option for 70 million and we managed to get a discount“. At the end of last season PSG signed Icardi from Inter for a fee of 50 million euros.
“Just because a player is injured doesn’t mean he won’t be important in the next 5 years. And he has already been important throughout the last season, even if he played less in the Champions League Final-8“.
The permanence of the former Inter star at PSG has been put in doubt. The 27-year-old striker feels nostalgic of Italy. He is currently sidelined because of a knee injury and in the meantime Moise Kean is exploiting this opportunity to shine.
