Edinson Cavani not tempted by Manchester United & Chelsea

Published Add your comment

Edinson Cavani has denied rumours that he is struggling to settle to life at Paris Saint-Germain.

Cavani only moved to Paris from Napoli last summer in a £53m deal but reports have since surfaced that he is not happy with being deployed in a wide role by head coach Laurent Blanc.

The Uruguayan's natural position is a central striker role but with Zlatan Ibrahimovic currently firing on all cylinders, a vacancy is unlikely to become available in the near future.

But Cavani, who is currently struggling with injury, has dispelled rumours of discontent saying that while some things should remain private his happiness he is happy with life in Paris.

When asked about his apparent unhappiness, Cavani told L'Equipe: "I do not know what you're talking about. This is not true.

"In football, the things we talk about in the locker room should stay in the dressing room and private life must remain private. But I feel good at PSG and Paris."

Both Manchester United and Chelsea have been linked with a move for Cavani following rumours of his unhappiness but will certainly be knocked back by this latest round of quotes.

Jose Mourinho has made no secret of his desire to sign a new world-class striker while David Moyes is ready to spend big to reinvigorate his struggling Red Devils. Javier Hernandez will likely leave in the summer while Robin van Persie is also being linked with a summer exit.

Cavani's latest quotes follow reports from Le Parisien that PSG are willing to increase his €478,000-a-month wage in order to convince him to stay. If he is happy and is on the verge of a pay rise the prospect of signing him in the summer becomes much harder for the Premier League rivals.
