Edinson Cavani has told reporters that he would consider leaving French champions Paris Saint-Germain if they fail to begin play him in his desired position.

He told French newspaper, L'Equipe: “will I remain in Paris next term? We will see at the end of the season.”

“I am fine in Paris, but obviously there are things we have to talk about with the club, things we need to do in a different way.”

The Uruguayan had managed 21 goals for PSG this season, since signing from Napoli for a reported £60million, however, Cavani has been used on the right wing for the majority of the season, playing second fiddle to Zlatan Ibrahimovic in a 4-3-3 formation.

Cavani said: “Playing in 4-4-2 was my vision of the team when I joined Paris. It is one of the arguments that motivated me to sign in that club”.

Cavani's disappointment at the clubs failure to play him alongside Ibrahimovic in a central striker role has prompted rumours that he will look to leave PSG at the end of the season, with the most likely destination being Jose Mourinho's Chelsea.

Chelsea are on the look-out for a world-class striker, after their trio of Fernando Torres, Demba Ba and Samuel Eto'o have struggled to find the back of the net during this campaign and while PSG are unlikely to want to offload free-scoring Ibrahimovic, they may choose to listen to offers on the man they signed for £60million less than a year ago.

Chelsea are reportedly planning on selling the likes of David Luiz and Fernando Torres in order to fund a move for a top striker and the unsettled Cavani certainly fits the bill.
