Former Spanish international Luis Suarez has told Uruguayan forward Edinson Cavani to leave Paris Saint-German, reports the Daily Star.

79-year-old Suarez - who starred at European giants Barcelona and Inter Milan throughout his career - believes Cavani is becoming a 'normal' player in France.

Suarez has insisted that Cavani is playing second fiddle to Zlatan Ibrahimovic under Laurent Blanc at the Ligue 1 outfit and he can't see the positives in him battling the Swedish star for a starring role. 

Speaking to France Football, Suarez said: "He's become a normal player who just works for Ibra. Sometimes, despite wanting to make things better, you actually make the situation worse.

"So, I think it would be better for him and the club [if Cavani] were to leave] because Zlatan is more complete and stronger."

With Ibrahimovic around, Cavani's opportunities to spearhead the PSG attack have been limited throughout his tenure with the club, but it remains to be seen as to whether he will look to jump ship anytime soon.


There will certainly be major interest in Cavani's signature if he becomes available in the foreseeable future. In fact, a number of the Premier League's elite clubs have been credited with interest in the Uruguayan star in recent time, with the likes of Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool all seemingly in the market for him. 

Cavani certainly wouldn't come cheap, though, after he only joined the French money-bags for a monster £54 million in the summer of 2013.

Manchester United were recently tipped to replace Robin van Persie with the Uruguayan striker, which would give them a front three of Cavani, Radamel Falcao and Wayne Rooney, but it remains to be seen as to whether Louis van Gaal would be willing to let Van Persie depart Old Trafford.

Chelsea, meanwhile, have Diego Costa in their ranks, but may be on the lookout for another world-class forward. Arsenal and Liverpool both added to their attacking department in the summer as the Gunners landed Alexis Sanchez and Danny Welbeck, whilst Liverpool signed Mario Balotelli and Rickie Lambert, but Cavani would certainly improve their options.
