For the 1st time in Edinson Cavani´s playing career he has managed to surpass the 30 goals mark scored in a single season for a domestic league competition.
The recently concluded season of 2016-17 has by far been the best season of the Uruguayan attacker who managed to find the back of the net on 35 occasions for PSG.
After such an impressive campaign by Edinson Cavani, he was awarded with the best foreign forward trophy. The 30 year old attacker had to travel to Italy in order to receive this individual recognition, when Cavani stepped up to get his award, he talked about his past as well as his future and also hinted out the possibility of making a return to his former club Napoli.
"I'm so emotional, I cannot find the words. It's beautiful to come back here, where each Sunday I fought so hard for this shirt and felt such strong emotions. I would move back to Italy, but only to Napoli. I speak with respect for all of the clubs I played for, but all of my family and those who know me already know that this is where I left part of my heart´´
"When I left, I said that if things changed a bit, I would like to come back to Napoli, but I want to come back here while I am still playing at a high level. I don't want to come back to Napoli when my footballing days are ending, it's going to be me who decides when I retire, so when I come back, I will still be in form." Edinson Cavani said as he was very emotional talking about his time spent in Napoli when receiving the award.
It was with Napoli that Edinson Cavani started to attract the attention of top clubs including PSG which eventually decided to sign the Uruguayan attacker for a reported price tag of €63 million.
