Edinson Cavani claims that he is ready to fight
Edinson Cavani claims that he is ready to fight for his future at Paris St Germain after being relegated to the bench in recent weeks.
The position of the striker at the French outfit has been under debate ever since he joined the club for £ 55 million in 2013. He continues to be linked with clubs like Chelsea and Manchester United. Manager Laurent Blanc has preferred using the older Zlatan Ibrahimovic rather than Cavani. Even when the Uruguayan is selected in the first-team, he often plays on the wing which is not his natural position.
Cavani has disappointed especially when it comes to the goals to game ratio.
This coupled with his replacement Lucas Mora doing well have put him on a permanent spot in the sidelines. The striker is least happy with the situation, as he used to be playing regularly until now. Even though he was not happy being shuffled around, the presence of gametime appeared to be more important for the 28-year-old. Now that it has disappeared from the shelves, it has been speculated that interest from other clubs will grow in the summer. Blanc has already stated that he will not stand in the way of Cavani should he decide to leave, but the striker says that he wants to fight for his future at the French giants.
“There is a problem with Cavani’s behaviour but my job is to think of the entire squad as a collective.We did hold a staff meeting and among the various issues we discussed were Cavani and his complaints.The desires of the individual can’t affect the rest of the team,” said Blanc. “Edinson will stay with PSG. The problems he has he knows how to deal with them like any professional. He is a team player and certainly does not feel uncomfortable here,” said a source close to Cavani.
