Mauro Icardi

Paris Saint-Germain new-signing Mauro Icardi admitted that he made the move in pursuit of silverware.

The former Inter Milan striker fell out with the board and was roped in on a loan deal by the French champions. He was disappointed at not winning titles with the Italian side and is excited at the prospect of fulfilling his dream with PSG.

The Argentine is motivated to make his loan move permanent by impressing in the squad full of champions.

“I came here to play,” Icardi told Canal+. “If you arrive with an option to buy, you know the player has to give his best to ensure the club decides to purchase him outright. We’ll see what happens next summer.

“I was in my seventh year at Inter and my dream was to play in the Champions League with Inter, which I did last season, but we never won anything.

“I thought the time had come for me to go to a winning club, one that could challenge for and win titles. It’s time for me to start winning.

“The truth is that PSG is a squad full of champions and that is what I wanted.

“People call me a ‘killer’ in the penalty area. I am always ready in the box to score goals. Ever since my debut when very young for Rosario, my objective and obsession has always been to score goals.”
