BOSS WARNS CAVANI
Uruguay coach Pablo Correa has warned striker Edinson Cavani against a potential move to Chelsea in the summer. The Paris St Germain striker is regarded as one of the best in the world, but he has struggled to get the same fame since a £ 60 million move to the French capital.
He has been consistently overshadowed by Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Even though he has scored 21 goals in 31 matches for the club, the record of Ibrahimovic continues to dominate the headlines. As a result, he is widely expected to be sold in the summer.
This is also done in order to balance the books, as PSG have spent excess amount of money in the last few transfer windows in a bid to improve the team. This would put them at a disadvantage in trying to comply with the UEFA financial fair play regulations.
Further, Chelsea are also in need of a striker and the arrival of Cavani will certainly suit them. The Uruguayan coach thinks that Cavani is only now starting to get an idea of Laurent Blanc’s tactics and that a move at this time is not ideal. Since he would have to adapt to Chelsea as well, the player may not cope with this sudden change in ideologies.
Cavani is expected to be an important player for Uruguay at the upcoming World Cup 2014. He has a great partnership with Luis Suarez of Liverpool.
"It would be a bad idea for him [Cavani] to go. I'm hearing it said that he's unhappy at PSG but Cavani doesn't have an arrogant or egocentric personality like some big stars. The proof is that he's very quickly adapted to [PSG manager] Laurent Blanc's system. That debate doesn't exist in Uruguay for the simple and good reason that Ligue 1 isn't broadcast there, unlike the Premier League or La Liga,” said Correa.
