French pay lion’s share of salary  

Galatasaray sign Icardi from PSG - Former €100m star announced

This article first appeared on September 7, 4:15 pm CET, and has since been updated with new information.


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 have agreed that the 29-year-old will receive €750,000 net from Galatasaray and €6 million net 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.


Alli, Cakir & Co.The most valuable Süper Lig playersClick here for overviewThe 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.
