Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has confidence he can form a partnership with the club's new signing Edinson Cavani. 

Cavani made the switch from Napoli earlier this month in a deal worth around €64m, joining on a five-year contract. 

Speculation mounted that Ibrahimovic could be on his way following the arrival of the Uruguayan, but last season's Ligue 1 top scorer has since quashed such rumours while insisting he and Cavani can work together. 

"I've never played with this guy (Cavani)," he told L'Equipe. "In my career, it has often been said that I could not play with another attacker and, in the end things turned out well."

While Ibrahimovic is confident the pair can fire the team to success, the Swede says Cavani will need to adapt quickly as they look to integrate him into the squad. 

"We'll see. A new player is going to come in. We will do everything to facilitate his integration. For his part, he must adapt to his new environment," Ibrahimovic added. 

"This is normal. Whenever I got in a club, I had to adapt to the players already in place to coach, to the public, to the city. A new recruit must always adapt his game to the way his new team plays."

Cavani featured for his national side this summer, as Uruguay reached the semi-finals of the Confederations Cup in Brazil in June, scoring three times, including a brace in the third-place play-off against Italy as they suffered defeat on penalties.
