€100m Man United & Chelsea target unhappy over striker role

The reasons for Manchester United and Chelsea target Edinson Cavani's unhappiness at Paris Saint Germain have been revealed, at least according to French newspaper Le 10 Sport.

Reports in this week's Daily Mail claimed Cavani's agents were in London this week for talks over a move, with Manchester United and Chelsea thought to be among a handful of clubs interested.

And Le 10 Sport claims to have the reasons behind the Uruguayan's desperation to leave the Parc des Princes after just one season.

Despite an impressive goals ratio for the defending French champions - he has 13 goals in 23 Ligue 1 games - he is not happy playing second fiddle to Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Last year's top scorer is currently leading the scoring charts again this term, and the Swedish international occupies the central role in Laurent Blanc's 4-3-3 system.

That is Cavani's preferred position, although he's unlikely to displace Ibrahmovic, the number one in Paris, anytime soon.

To his credit, the former-Palermo man has impressed in the wide-right role, and continues to find the target on a regular basis.

It's a testament to his versatility and all-round game, but the report claims he's looking for potential alternative destinations that could allow him to flourish in the central role.

Manchester United and Chelsea have both been linked with recent days, although PSG would reportedly demand at least €100m.
