Edinson Cavani rejected the chance to join Manchester City several times according to their former assistant coach Angelo Gregucci, reports the Daily Star.
The 26-year-old striker was one of the most wanted men in football with the likes of Chelsea and Real Madrid being linked with a move for him.
Manchester City were also keen to add Cavani to their already star-studded attacking roster but he eventually opted to sign for PSG in a record breaking £55m move.
It has now been revealed that former manager Roberto Mancini attempted to bring Cavani to the Etihad a number of times in his time as manager of Manchester City.
"However, we were never able to reach a solution that satisfied Edinson, and he immediately ruled out a transfer to England."
Mancini lost his job as City manager at the end of last season after missing out on the title to Manchester United and losing the FA Cup final in a shock 1-0 loss to Wigan Athletic.
New manager Manuel Pellegrini seemingly turned attentions away from Cavani and instead opted to sign Alvaro Negredo and Stevan Jovetic.
