25

Mauro Icardi has left Inter and joined PSG on loan.

As anticipated, the former Inter captain has left his old club to join the French champions on a loan deal. Icardi joins for 5 million with PSG having the option to purchase for 65 million.

Icardi becomes the 16th Argentine to ever sign for the club and at 26 years old, is entering his prime. Speaking with PSG’s website, here’s what he had to say:

“I’d like to thank Paris Saint-Germain for the confidence they have shown in me. I will give everything to help my new team go as far as possible in all competitions. Paris Saint-Germain has become an international football powerhouse, attracting some of the greatest players in recent years.

“The momentum is strong in Paris, ambitions are high and I am sure that we have everything here to go even further. And I’m really looking forward to playing at the Parc des Princes, a stadium famous for its beauty and passion!”

  1. Yes it’s our coaches who made super generation think they are unchangeable.that thought was one in some reason of trophy draught also unluck.but scaloni has guts to replace big names. he did

  2. De Paul stays in Udinese one more year, Neither Fiorentina, Napoli, Milan or Inter wanted to pay more than 30 mill. for him, Udinese wanted 40…not even seria a clubs rate him really highly

    • I agree with you that he is not world class or worth 40m+. But he is very hardworking and played an exceptional tournament for us. So I like him much more than 70m Di Maria. That’s it.

      He just needs to work harder because it’s difficult to further grow at his age and at a mediocre club Udinese.

    • “not even seria a clubs rate him really highly”

      you have not to add you are happy with this because market value and big clubs attention is everything for you

    • And what did 100m players give to us.they are only important for clubs.we need fighting bloods not money banks that only fight for clubs

      • True. Only those players would work their socks off to prove their worth to the world unlike the club legends who think they’re a tad above the NT. Not blaming anyone in specific, but at times, it can be a bitter truth to digest for idol worshippers… Players like Lanzini, De Paul, Mac Allister, Palacios have something to prove and they do have that HUNGER..

        • Don’t say like Grapes are sour, Spain, Germany, France won the world club from players at Big European Clubs, Argentina only have forwards who plays in top club not players from every position. Yes with farmers, One team play best football and can perform like a team, we have seen this every UCL season one farmer team reach into semis but ultimately world class team can win the tournament. Argentina from 1998-2006 playing like a team with farmers but zero success at least 2007-2016 with 100milion players reach consecutive finals. World class players from top club needs to win World cup or Euro.

          • Those German and Spanish players were loyal .these argentina club players thought they are untouchable .they were playing without changing . they were not afraid of under performing.that made them lazy .now it’s over.new era begins with young fighting bloods not millions club baby afraid of injury for playing for nation

          • “Argentina only have forwards who plays in top club not players from every position”

            LoL.. So, Mascherano of Barca, Demi and Ota of Man City, Romero amd Rojo of Man Utd, Biglia of Lazio or Milan, Banega of Seville were all farmers..

            The truth is that the first time an all time legend club legend like Kun started clicking for senior NT or at least started showing more of what he really is only after gettimg drafted into a team of young bloods. And I admit going by your language, De Paul from Udine, Lo Celso from Betis(as of Copa) etc. are farmers. It proves that Farmers are the best..

        • The narrative that our golden generation were entitled, lazy, or didn’t work hard enough is straight baloney. They BLED for the team for over a decade, despite the shit coaches, shit AFA, and all the shit fans. No one here has any fucking clue what its like to wear such a heavy shirt. its so easy for these arm chair experts to give an opinion.

          • Branding someone’s opinion baloney and of the self ‘super-sensible’ is a baloney in and of itself. Yes, you’re just one among those armchair experts who hold a narrative that those club legends gave their best despite all the shit, which again is a super delusive perception. No one here has any fu**ing idea like how it’s to wear such a heavy shirt, but guys like De Paul have and they wear their heart on the sleeve while on the field unlike the LEGENDS who until recently before meeting these young lionhearts were chewing gum while playing national anthem before play and looking disjointed and completely lost on the pitch at crucial moments.

            “Branding someone’s opinion baloney and of the self ‘super-sensible’ is a baloney in and of itself. ”

            and in your previous comment you said :
            “Not blaming anyone in specific, but at times, it can be a bitter truth to digest for idol worshippers… ”

            why don’t you respect other people’s opinion instead of calling them “idol worshipers” ??

            it seems that many here have a crystal ball looking into other’s soul to prejudge their true intentions and support towards the NT. Just like many accuse people of supporting the stars ahead of the team.
            You should just accept other people point of view without throwing such accusations of ‘worshiping’ certain players if you expect others to respect your’s

            “They BLED for the team for over a decade, despite the shit coaches, shit AFA, and all the shit fans.”

            No matter how much you stress the above points, many will see ONLY what they are programmed to see.

          • As if you are pieces dropped from heaven, not programmed at all.

            By ‘idol worshippers’, I mean those:

            1. Who are supporting the NT for the sake of just one player and his aides.

            2. Who sing hymns for just one player.

            3. Who are afraid of the inclusion of young players to the NT coz it could mean their idol could become irrelevant at some point in immediate future.

            4. Who can’t sleep thinking of a NT without their idols in the team.

            5. Who are so deluded to think that the country that has been the greatest springboard for talents, in terms of both quality and quantity will stop producing them all of a sudden once the idol’s generation wears away.

            6. Regardless of the apparent signs of infirmity and deterioration, insists the oldguard be kept untouched.

            7. Who will possibly start following other NTs or quit following the game itself once the idol hangs up his boots.

          • ALL the above points are , pointless, because they are mere accusations of other people’s intent, beliefs and thoughts just because they simply disagree with your concepts and opinions. I have never seen any member here who I can call a ‘worshiper’ or fanatic of one certain player to the point I can accuse him of putting that player a head of the NT. Or
            I have seen any member who would just quit supporting Argentina because a star oldie or any other player is not playing for the NT. I am still amazed at some who throw such accusations.

            and yes many are programmed to see things the way they see fit.
            In order to understand what I mean you need to practice abstract thinking.

            you said
            “As if you are pieces dropped from heaven, not programmed at all.”

            YOU SEE, if you are programmed to believe things in a certain way, does not mean all are.

          • “The narrative that our golden generation were entitled, lazy, or didn’t work hard enough is straight baloney. They BLED for the team for over a decade, despite the shit coaches, shit AFA, and all the shit fans”

            When they bled, they bled. That was long ago and not in recent 2-3 years. They gave all their energy years ago and should not have been in NT since few years because were threadbare and spoiled since lack of competition (which is coach blame). Yes, we have always alternatives, just coaches stuck to the generation too long and that cost us few years lost as well as WC.

            Don’t even try to suggest it’s only coaches blame we were so poor during 2 years on different competitions under few coaches. Coaches were changing but the old players still were there so poor qualifiers and poor WC is not accident. This last Copa is best prove the generational change was long overdue as we are on rising course again thanks to fresh blood

          • That’s the bluntest point read in some time here. Since most people here are not leading ascetic life, it’s very common that we are all touching and colliding with each other’s thoughts, intent and emotions with the pattern of ideas and intent of discussions varying from person to person, instance to instance.

            So you yourself are not in denial of your idiosyncrasies as you admit “I have not seen”. That’s just your experience with the world around you, which may not be another person’s and definitely not mine for that matter! So admit others have theirs as well.

            Further, you need not be hurt by ‘idol-worshipper’ remarks if you’re not one among them. Or may be you’re hurt by any/some/all of the points I’d mentioned(which you deem ‘pointless’) as you’re identifying yourself with them.

            And if you still imply at “there are no people here who are idol-worshippers”, you don’t have a good scanner and neither are you here an admin with the privilege of inducting members on board based on some clinically tested psychometry. If such blindness towards it gives you an extra ounce of sleep, for your peace, I can say I have no worries at all. But again you must stop generalising as to give a feel of ‘no one here is blah blah’. I was so specific about a group(though minority) with my comment unlike your statements.

            So please stop living in your la la land and come to resignation. There are ‘idol-worshippers’ here by the very sense of the literal word itself, you need not get identified with them by trying to defend the indefensible. May be I tell this based on my conviction, even if it’s based on a single experience..

          • blah blah blah …..

            More accusations and reading into other people soul for simply opposing you opinion.

            to rest my case , I will include the following :
            “Concrete thinking refers to the thinking on the surface whereas abstract thinking is related to thinking in depth. Concrete thinking does not have any depth. It just refers to thinking in the periphery. … While some mental process is involved in abstract thinking, no such effort is evolved in concrete thinking.”
            yepp, it is copied from google.

            enjoy your crystal ball !

          • Lol. Again some philosophy jargons just to get that ounce of sleep. I’m trying to prove a point. Whereas you don’t seem to have one. So sleep well today.. “Not copied from google”.

          • > Don’t even try to suggest it’s only coaches blame we were so poor during 2 years on different competitions under few coaches.

            impossible. we cannot ignore the greatest factor for our shit performance. “ignore sampaoli and ignore bauza” give me fucking break. 🙂 ridiculous to ignore such vital factors.

            And i’m still waiting for yall to give me alternative names to Di Maria, Aguero, Messi, Higuain, Otamndi, Romero, etc. Go ahead, ill keep waiting…

          • @sabarish-menon

            1. Who are supporting the NT for the sake of just one player and his aides.

            Many people including YOU started off by liking ARGENTINA for just a few players, yet you’re touting some high horse? give me a break.. hypocrisy at its finest.

            2. Who sing hymns for just one player.

            Camp Nou chants MESSI MEESSI MESSI and tis fucking amazing! he’s a LIVING GOD, get over it.

            3. Whos afraid of the inclusion of young players to the NT coz it could mean their idol could become irrelevant at some point in immediate future.

            Who the hell is afraid of including young players in fear? Most of the concern i read is that they don’t think youngster are as good yet as they haven’t proven themselves compared to veterans. It’s just healthy skepticism. What do you expect when we have AGUERO and then see Alario and Simeone? lol

            4. Who can’t sleep thinking of a NT without their idols in the team.

            Now youre just making up shit! lol

            5. Who are so deluded to think that the country that has been the greatest springboard for talents, in terms of both quality and quantity will stop producing them all of a sudden once the idol’s generation wears away.

            Most people dont think this way. youre making it a big deal for no reason.

            6. Regardless of the apparent signs of infirmity and deterioration, insists the oldguard be kept untouched.

            Nagh..most when they see player play poorly with change their mind. Di Maria ia good example, no said anything when De Paul was prioritized.

            7. Who will possibly start following other NTs or quit following the game itself once the idol hangs up his boots.

            hyperbolic. i bet you cant find 1 person or if you do, its insignificant.
