Juventus’ sporting director Giuseppe Marotta has confirmed that his club admire Edinson Cavani and would be keen to recruit him should Paris Saint-Germain put him up for sale.

The Uruguayan has struggled at the Parc des Princes this season.
The ex-Napoli striker has managed only nine goals in 29 Ligue 1 appearances and has appeared out-of-sorts in the Champions League. He appeared off-colour on Tuesday evening as PSG crashed out 5-1 on aggregate at the hands of Barcelona, and his form shows no sign of improving.
The 28-year-old has enjoyed some success in Paris—winning the Ligue 1 title last season, as well as two French league cups, but he is widely considered to be heading for the exit door as part of the club’s mooted overhaul this summer.
Manchester United and Atletico Madrid have been linked with the forward, while Juventus may offer Cavani a return to Serie A.
As reported by Tuttosport, director Marotta is not ruling out a move for the forward.
“Everyone knows that Cavani is an excellent player,” he began, “and he is certainly a target for numerous European clubs.
“We appreciate him, but in all honesty, we haven’t approached any director of PSG…if one day the Uruguayan finds himself on the market, we will look to sign him.
“Only a definitive, private and public breakup between the forward and the Parisian management could allow Juventus to sit down at the table with PSG.”
