Despite moving to PSG only last summer, Edinson Cavani is a name that has constantly been on the transfer pages in the last few months. The Uruguayan forward has expressed his unhappiness at being played out of position due to the presence of Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Cavani is not the star name at PSG despite his £ 60 million transfer to the French club. Even when he has been used as the main striker during Ibrahimovic’s absence, he has failed to take his opportunities. This poor finishing was one of the reasons for PSG being knocked out by Chelsea in the Champions League last season.
It has been heavily speculated that Cavani was looking for a move to the Premier League. Poor performances at the World Cup 2014, though, appear to have made interested parties, a list that includes Manchester United and Chelsea, sceptical about a potential transfer. Cavani has expressed his desire to one-day play in the Premier League and it may soon come according to the striker. PSG are involved in negotiations with Real Madrid over the transfer of Angel di Maria. The Argentine star is expected to be sold in order to fund the transfer of James Rodriguez.
PSG, meanwhile, are looking to sell Cavani in order to fund the purchase of di Maria. "I am sure I am staying, why would I not be? I am happy in Paris, under contract to PSG and calm. I feel good here. But, as I have already said, it does not only depend on the player. It also depends on the club and what is going on for them. We had some small problems with respect to the position I wanted to play but I feel very good about that,” said Cavani about his situation at PSG and his relationship with Ibrahimovic.
