Edinson Cavani set for showdown talks with PSG

Top Manchester United target Edinson Cavani will tomorrow meet with PSG chiefs in a meeting set to decide his future, according to Italian sports journalist Alfredo Pedulla.

French newspaper Le 10 Sport, carrying quotes from the Sport Italia writer, this morning claims that Cavani has called for talks to be held which will determine where he is playing his football next year, and the Uruguayan is set to tell the powers that be at the Parc des Princes in no uncertain terms that he is looking to leave the club. The 27-year-old remains unhappy in his position behind Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the pecking order at PSG, and could well see a move to pastures new as the ideal way to reignite his career.

Cavani’s problem

The former Napoli man has struggled to have the same impact in Ligue 1 as he did in the Serie A prior to his big money switch last summer. Despite the fact he still has a mooted valuation of £62million, the fact that he has been forced to play out wide to accommodate the talents of Ibrahimovic has somewhat nullified his goal scoring threat.

As such it’s been speculated for sometime now that he is looking to move on, and the apparent interest from United, who are looking for a resurgence of their own after the appointment of Louis van Gaal, seems to have been enough to garner his intrigue. This is particularly pertinent given the fact it was claimed last week that he has told his representatives to get him a move which promises Premier League football.

PSG’s stance

Over the weekend the idea of PSG cashing in on Cavani took on a new significance, as it became clear that they will need to raise money for potential purchases by selling the stars on their books, thanks to the sanctions in place from their breach of Financial Fair Play rules. Cavani is perhaps their most valuable asset and, if they hope to acquire Real Madrid’s Angel di Maria, they will have to accumulate over £50million.

This breathes life into the idea of the Uruguay international being flogged, as Laurent Blanc is said to be keen on Di Maria, and will probably see the Argentinian international as more than capable of filling Cavani’s current position in a wide attacking berth.

United interest

Quite why United are rumoured to be interested in the striker is anyone’s guess, as they currently have Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney sitting in the respective primes of their careers. There’s no doubting Cavani would improve Van Gaal’s options, but will he want to move if he’s not guaranteed a starting position at his new club? One would assume not.
