Paris St Germain striker Edinson Cavani has finally been able to get the recognition he has yearned for since completing his £ 62 million move from Napoli several years ago.
Cavani was one of the top centre forwards in Napoli, but he was clearly not happy with being second best was Zlatan Ibrahimovic at Paris St Germain. After the departure of the Swede in the summer, Cavani has become the undisputed number one. He has clearly relished this role, as the Uruguayan has scored 27 goals in 27 league matches this season. He remains a major factor behind the club remaining in the title race.
Cavani was heavily linked with a move away from the club over the last few years, but he now seems to have firmly set his sights upon becoming a PSG legend. The 30-year-old claims that he wants to discuss terms over a new contract as soon as possible.
The striker has a contract that runs out in the summer of 2018, thus placing his future at PSG uncertain. With the kind of enormous wealth at the disposal of PSG, the club will be able to bring in any top striker from around the world. Cavani is also the wrong side of 30 and he is keen on ensuring his long-term future at the club.
“I hope so [that he will sign a new deal].At the end of the season, it will already have been four years in Paris. I play every match as if I was a supporter of the club since I was small. It is normal that I want to stay here. I want to win important titles for this club. When I arrived, they were harsh. I did not understand everything that was being said about me.My brother, who understands French, told me a few sentences. That made me stronger," said Cavani.
