Inter has tried to offload the controversial striker throughout the summer but without any success. He holds a contract till 2021 with Inter and has reportedly rejected many clubs that showed interest in taking him in the 2019/20 transfer window.

Meanwhile, Inter has already signed Romelu Lukaku from Manchester United for €67m with United misfit Alexis Sanchez joining him at San Siro. Lautaro Martinez is the other striker at Inter. PSG, on the other, were looking for a new striker after Edinson Cavani and Kylian Mabappe were injured during PSG’s Ligue 1 games. Both players will miss the first-leg against Real Madrid in the Champions League leaving Icardi at the first-choice at Parc des Princes.
