‘It Was an Honor’ — Icardi Reflects on the Decision to Leave Inter Milan for PSG

After spending a season on loan with Paris Saint-Germain, Mauro Icardi came to terms on a permanent transfer move agreement with the French powerhouse over last year’s summer transfer window. The Argentine ended his tenure with Inter Milan and agreed to sign a multi-year contract deal with PSG.

This decision was not one in which Icardi had to put much time to consider about. From his first days with PSG, he knew that this was the club that he wanted to spend his upcoming prime years with.

In speaking to PSG TV, Icardi took a look back on his decision to sign on with the club.

“When I arrived on loan, I did all I could to be able to make a difference and help the team with my goals,” Icardi said. “It was a good year. So I was very happy the club decided to take up the option on me and to propose to me to continue together for the next four years.

“For me, it was an honor. As I said on the first day I arrived in Paris. I feel good here, in a great team that wins trophies. That’s what a player looks for.”

Icardi scored 20 goals last season in all competitions with PSG. Coming into this season, Icardi simply aimed to replicate his success from his debut campaign with the French side.

“My attitude is the same as last season,” Icardi said. “Last year, we had a great season, and I hope that in the years to come we can keep improving and win trophies.”

Icardi has so far scored seven goals in all competitions with PSG this season.
