And Paris Saint-Germain announced his departure officially on Thursday evening, and it was expected several days ago. Not in Christophe Galtier’s plans, Mauro Icardi signed as planned with Galatasaray. The Argentine striker has never appeared this season, joining the Turkish club on loan without an option to buy. As announced in a press release, Galatasaray will pay only a small portion of Interist’s previous salary. Showcased on Friday in front of the media, the Parisian coach was delighted that the 29-year-old striker was able to find a base.

“I hope he is happy there”

“What was done was done well. It’s important that the players that I didn’t count on in terms of my playing model and different things were able to find a club to play and play time. A lot of them are on loan, so it’s probably going to come back next season. And if they’re going to come back. Next season it will be even more exciting with a long playing time. I know that Mauro Icardi was done in the last hours of the transfer window in Turkey and I hope he will be happy there and find a great time to play.”

Christoph Galtier was also arrested in the next winter transfer window. While the summer shopping has just ended with the arrival of six new players – Vitina, Hugo Eketek, Renato Sanchez, Nordi Mukele, Fabian Ruiz and Carlos Soler – the former Nice technician had yet to think in January. “You’ve already shown yourself in the winter transfer window, and not me at all. The technical department, and in particular Luis Campos, with our president already have to discuss with our president the expectation of many things in relation to this winter transfer window. I’m really game by game.”
