Edinson Cavani may return to his former club Napoli
PSG striker Edinson Cavani has stated that he could one day return to his former club Napoli, with whom he shares a special relationship, but only if current president Aurelio De Laurentiis does not remain at the club.
Cavani fell out withDe Laurentiis before his massive £ 60 million move to Paris St Germain. The Uruguayan was linked with several other clubs like Real Madrid and Manchester United, but he was able to make a move only to PSG since Napoli reportedly demanded a lot of money. At that time, PSG were the only club capable of paying such a huge figure for a 27-year-old striker.
After the move to the French club, everything has not been good for the striker. He has largely been playing second fiddle to Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the team. He has been used as a central striker only when the big Swede has not been available for selection. This appears to have hurt him a lot and rumours continue to persist about a move away from the French club. Atletico Madrid have been the latest club to be linked with a move in the summer, but Cavani has also hinted that he may be open to a return to Napoli ifDe Laurentiis leaves the club.
"I've spoken about it with my family and I'd really love to go back one day, but only when their current president's no longer there. That's the one condition for my return and I've always said it. I have such strong feelings for that city and if I could, I wouldn't think twice about returning. I'll always thank all of the teams I played for from the bottom of my heart because they all helped me grow as a person and a footballer, but the three years I spent in Naples were fantastic,” said Cavani.
