Argentine striker Mauro Icardi was loaned out by Paris Saint Germain until the end of the season to Turkey’s Galatasaray.Icardi, 29, did not play a role in the last two seasons with the French side, which he joined in 2019 on loan from Inter Italy. In fact, the current coach of the Parisian club, Christophe Galtier, was not going to take it into account and, therefore, they declared it transferable.” Hopefully we can take this team back to the top level again. Galatasaray is a team that always aims high. We want to be a part of that. The players, all working, want to celebrate by presenting all the fans with another night of the Champions League,” said the striker.
Asked about the welcome given to him by the club’s fans at Istanbul’s Atatürk Airport, Icardi commented: “I would like to thank our fans for making this beautiful welcome. My family and I were very impressed. It was an amazing welcome. I was very impressed with the way they showed so much love as soon as they arrived.” In a statement, Galatasaray announced that it will pay 750,000 euros (the same amount in dollars) of the 6,750,000 million euros of annual salary of the Argentine attacker. It is worth mentioning that the cast made an interesting video a few hours ago to present their recent reinforcements. In the audiovisual material, Icardi appears accompanied by the Spanish Juan Mata, the Danish Mathias Ross, the Albanian Milot Rashica and the Austrian Yusuf Demir.Previously, the Istanbul team incorporated outstanding players such as the Uruguayan Lucas Torreira, the Belgian Dries Mertens and the Swiss Haris Seferovic with the aim of reversing what was done last season in the Turkish league, where they did not reach the positions of European competences.
