Mauro Icardi has left Paris Saint-Germain to join Galatasaray. On Wednesday, the centre-forward posted a picture of himself with a yellow and orange lion tattoo on his chest on Instagram, the colours of Gala, known as the Lions. Galatasaray made the loan move official on Thursday night. According to well-informed sources from Italy and Turkiye, PSG will nonetheless continue to pay the lion’s share of the salary. 

The clubs are said to have agreed that the 29-year-old will receive €3 million from Galatasaray and €5 million from PSG for the 2022/23 season, which he will spend on loan in Turkiye. At the Ligue 1 champions, who do not receive loan fee, his contract runs until 2024. Icardi no longer played a role under head coach Christophe Galtier and has been looking for a new opportunity.

The former Inter Milan star will become the new most valuable player in the Süper Lig. Icardi’s current market value of €22 million, however, is only a fraction of the one he held in 2018. Like Dele Alli, who most recently joined Besiktas on loan from Everton, Icardi held a market value of €100 million at the end of 2018. Disagreements with Inter followed, then a €50 million move to PSG in 2019, and with it, less and less playing time. Icardi becomes Galatasaray’s ninth new signing of the summer.

New top earner: Icardi to compete with Mertens and Seferovic

Haris Seferovic (from Benfica) and Dries Mertens (from Napoli), who earn less than Icardi, were previously signed in the centre-forward position. While Mertens receives €2.9 million net per season, Severovic earns €2.3 million. New midfielder Sérgio Oliveira (from Porto) and Lucas Torreira (from Arsenal) each earn €2.75 million.
