Icardi to join PSG on loan from Inter

Mauro Icardi is set to join Paris Saint-Germain on a season-long loan from Inter Milan, according to Sky in Italy.

The Argentina international striker is expected to sign a new deal with Inter before completing a move to the Ligue 1 champions, ahead of the transfer window closing in France on Monday evening.

Icardi has been deemed surplus to requirements at the San Siro by head coach Antonio Conte following the arrivals of Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez from Manchester United.

Juventus and Roma were both interested in signing Icardi during the summer transfer window.

Associated Press reported last week Icardi is suing Inter for discrimination, claiming 1.5m euros (£1.38m) in damages and to be allowed back into the first-team fold.

Icardi claims he was excluded from specific training sessions for forwards, directed by Conte.
