Edinson Cavani wasn't orchestrating Arsenal move

Published Add your comment

Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani missed training with the French club because he was with German Fernandez, reports the Express.

The Uruguayan hit-man, who has been linked with a big-money move away from the Ligue 1 outfit of late, has been fined by the club after delaying his return from South America. 

Arsenal transfer? 

However, despite it initially being reported that he was orchestrating a move to north London outfit Arsenal, it now appears that he was just catching up with his old friend Fernandez. In fact, the PSG forward Tweeted a picture of them both whilst they were together. 

Fernandez, meanwhile, has insisted that Cavani's absence from training was his fault as the player came to visit him in order to wish him luck. 

He told Le Parisien: "Well, let's say it a bit my fault.

"Edinson is really a very good person, very humble and I'm proud of him.

"He came to wish me luck. We took a picture and it is mounted on the bike.

"But I told him that he couldn't come out on the road with me. You still have to be careful."

Despite the fact that Cavani was clearly with Fernandez, his long term future with PSG remains in some doubt, with a number of clubs seemingly interested in his services. 

Huge interest 

In fact, as many as three Premier League clubs have been credited with interest in the player's signature, with the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool joining Arsenal in the race to bring him to England. 

Despite seemingly being unsettled in France, the player won't come cheap, however, with it being suggested that the Paris based club rate him at around the £62 million mark.

It remains to be seen as to whether any of the Premier League clubs will step up their interest in the highly rated forward anytime soon, but they may well have to break their current transfer records in order to take him away from France. 

There's no doubt about it, Cavani, despite his troubles in Ligue 1, is one of the leading strikers in world football, and would no doubt improve the majority of squads in world football. 

The Cavani transfer saga certainly doesn't look set to go away in the near future, with England's finest clubs monitoring developments.
