Inter Milan ‘REJECT £54m offer for Mauro Icardi from PSG’ as Italian side demand £62m fee… with Juventus and Napoli also in hunt for striker
- Mauro Icardi has spent the 2019-20 campaign on loan in the French capital
- He has scored 12 goals in 20 league appearances for the Ligue 1 champions
- Icardi is currently contracted at Inter until 2022 but PSG are looking to buy him
- Inter Milan have rejected PSG’s initial offer of £45million plus £9m in bonuses
Inter Milan have rejected Paris Saint-Germain’s offer of £45million plus £9m in bonuses for striker Mauro Icardi as the French side look to make his loan move permanent.
The Argentinian spent the 2019-20 campaign on loan in the French capital, where he has scored 12 goals in 20 league appearances for the Ligue 1 champions.
PSG want the 27-year-old to join permanently, but Inter Milan will only accept an offer of at least £54m plus £8m in add-ons, according to Sky Sport Italia and La Gazzetta Dello Sport.

Icardi is currently contracted at Inter until the summer of 2022 – after signing a new three-year deal before heading out on loan – but could be set to leave the San Siro stadium should PSG raise their offer.
The French side have already offered Julian Draxler and Leandro Paredes in exchange for a lower price on Icardi, but Inter coach Antonio Conte is not convinced by either player.
Considering that it was a free loan, the Nerazzurri expect the full payment and will not be willing to accept PSG’s discounted offer.
PSG, who have already paid £12m for the one-season loan and covered his salary, are leaving the door open for other interested parties by refusing to meet the buy-out clause.
Both Juventus and Napoli have been credited with an interest in Icardi, with a swap deal involving Miralem Pjanic and Alex Sandro suggested as a possibility for the former.
Reports suggest that an option for PSG could be to buy Icardi outright to sell him on to one of his Italian suitors to pocket an extra £14m.
