Edinson Cavani Responds To Chelsea Transfer Speculation
Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani has clarified that he has no plans of leaving Les Parisiens amid the ongoing speculation linking him with a move to Stamford Bridge. The Uruguay international has scored 28 league goals for the Capital outfit who have cruised towards the Ligue 1 title and they most recently celebrated a treble after winning the French Cup against third-tier minnows Les Herbiers.
Speaking after the Cup triumph, Cavani assured that he is not thinking about a summer exit and he is keen on winning more silverware with the French champions, he said: “My future is here, of course. I think that it has been a good season. We must enjoy moments like these. I am pleased for the supporters to be here. Four consecutive Coupe de France wins represents a lot of history for PSG. We are here to win and win titles for the club.”
Cavani’s position came under question during the early phase of the campaign where he had a fall-out with Neymar in a match against Lyon. However, the pair have since managed to shed their differences apart and Cavani recently admitted that there are no longer issues between him and the world’s most expensive footballer.
Meanwhile, Chelsea are reported on the hunt for a new marksman during the summer transfer window and any new arrival could coincide with the departure of club-record signing Alvaro Morata. The Spaniard has struggled to find his feet since the turn of the year and reports from Italy have suggested that he could re-join Juventus on a two-year loan with the obligation of a permanent deal in the future.
Morata netted 10 league goals for Chelsea during the first half of the campaign but the intensity of the competition has had a toll on him since the start of 2018. The Spaniard has managed just one goal in the top-flight over the past five months and he is currently playing second fiddle to Olivier Giroud in the centre-forward department.
