Icardi scored 20 goals in 31 games in all competitions before the end of the French season on April 30, with 10 games remaining due to the coronavirus pandemic.

He is competing for a spot in the team with Uruguayan striker Edinson Cavani, PSG's all-time top scorer, whose contract expires on June 30.
