Edinson Cavani refuses to rule out Paris Saint-Germain exit

Published 1 Comments

Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani has done a terrible job of dampening speculation that he's ready to leave the French capital this summer, after another night to forgot for the frustrated forward.

Cavani was hauled off after missing an absolute sitter against Marseille last weekend, and didn't take the decision too well.

The Uruguayan was clearly fuming that he'd once again been forced to play second fiddle to Zlatan Ibrahimovic, launching into an angry verbal exchange with PSG boss Laurent Blanc as he left the field at the Stade Velodrome.

Time to move on?

After PSG's vital 3-2 win over Marseille the former Napoli star was asked if his struggles in a massive game put his future in any further doubt, amid persistent rumours of Premier League interest from the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal in particular.

Cavani reeled off the usual lines about being focused on helping PSG chase trophies on four fronts, but beyond this season you have to feel his future is very much up for debate.

Cavani quotes

The 28-year-old was asked about plans for next season and beyond by Canal Plus, in an interview cited by Cavani insisted: "Currently, I am just thinking about finishing the season in Paris and also respecting my contract.

"My attention is only focused on training with the club that pays me. But anything can happen in football."

Goal drought has to be majot concern

Cavani's goal drought has to be a major concern for Blanc, with the 28-year-old now failing to score for seven straight games in Ligue 1.

Clearly he places at least some of the blame for that dip in form on being forced to regularly play out wide so Ibrahimovic can star in the centre.

"The only concern that I have ever spoken about is that I was recruited to play as a striker with Ibrahimovic and it has not always been the case," Cavani admitted.

"There is a long series of games where I have not scored in Ligue 1 but that can happen. In France, people judge me as a lone striker, but I do not play in that position.

"But aside from that, everything else is perfect here."

Something has to give this summer, with Blanc's future still in some doubt let alone that of a player PSG paid a quite incredible £55m for in 2013.

Cavani will be available at the right price if Blanc can't keep him happy, which is something United and no doubt a whole host of others will be paying very close attention to.

Will Cavani leave PSG this summer? If so which club look best placed to take advantage and add a world-class striker to their ranks? Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below!
