Paris Saint-Germain continues to advance in an effort to defend the French Ligue 1 title this season, as well as other competitions including the European Champions League. Their speed is inseparable from the sharp front lines owned by Thomas Tuchel, including Mauro Icardi. The German manager even felt very impressed with the slick performance of the Argentinian star.
Mauro Icardi, 26, joined Paris Saint-Germain in the transfer market last summer on loan for one full season. Although only as a loan, the fact is that Icardi is still able to look brilliant, he continues to be a mainstay on the front lines, and even seems to have been able to replace Edinson Cavani.
In fact, the Argentine must fight with two first-class players like Neymar and Mbappe, he is no less shining. Most recently, Icardi scored a hat trick in PSG’s 6-1 victory over Saint-Etienne in the Ligue 1 continuation 2019-2020 (1/9/2020). Additional three goals that bring Icardi collected nine goals in the last 10 matches PSG in all competitions.
No doubt, Les Parisiens coach Thomas Tuchel then praised the 26-year-old figure.
“I’m impressed with it. I just met him here (PSG). He is very reliable and very, very professional. He understands football tactically, works defensively and is very, very efficient. The performance and reliability for the team was very impressive, but I don’t want to talk about purchasing options,” Tuchel said, quoted by Goal International.
So, are the words of the manager a sign that Paris Saint-Germain is quick to redeem Icardi’s clause permanently? Who knows, but what is clear is that PSG has the option to change Icardi’s loan status to become permanent in the transfer market next summer with a value of 65 million Euros or equivalent to IDR 1.1 trillion.
Paris Saint-Germain clearly must move quickly, the article is heard, teams like Juventus, Real Madrid and Manchester United are reportedly also interested in the services of the former Sampdoria player. Moreover, Edinson Cavani who has been a mainstay has aged, there must be regeneration by the defending champion Ligue 1.
