French champion Paris Saint-Germain has signed striker Mauro Icardi from Inter Milan on a four-year deal.
Icardi joined PSG on a season's loan and had impressed with 20 goals in 31 games when the league season was stopped because of the coronavirus pandemic.
PSG took up its option to buy the 27-year-old Argentine and gave him a contract until June, 2024.
No financial details were given, but Italian media reported the transfer as costing 50 million euros ($55.5 million) with additional bonuses.
The French league was ended with 10 rounds remaining after the government called off domestic competitions at the end of April, but PSG remains in contention to win the Champions League for the first time after reaching the quarterfinals.
The prolific Icardi netted 124 goals in 219 games for Inter but his spell there ended amid a bitter fallout.
