Here’s the thing. We merely report the news in which others are reporting and comment on it. Which is why I’m here to report that according to a French report, PSG are in fact interested in taking up the option to buy on Mauro Icardi.

Now, in most of the previous reporting that has been done, PSG were in fact not interested in taking up the option to buy. Icardi has been solid for PSG since arriving last summer on loan from Inter Milan. He’s scored 20 goals so far this season.

You could say the logic, or change in mindset, if there in fact has been one from the PSG side, is due to Edison Cavani. Perhaps PSG came to the point wherein they’re certain that they won’t be able to re-sign Cavani this summer, and Icardi presents a solid replacement.
