PSG striker Edinson Cavani has been rumoured to be interested in leaving the French giants for a while now. Between playing second-fiddle to Zlatan Ibrahimovic and alleged fears about the safety of living in France, Cavani has been slated for a move to England for months now, with Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United believed to be high on his list. But one of Cavani’s teammates appears to be trying to stop the star striker from making the move to the Premier League.
According to the Express, Cavani has been told by Uruguayan teammate Diego Forlan to “resist the urge” to join the Premier League and should stay with PSG – a proven winner. Forlan believes that Cavani will be better off staying where he is and continuing to win titles in France instead of taking a risk that he’ll have the same or better level of success elsewhere.
“It’s not easy leaving a place where one feels comfortable, where one has the opportunity to play lots of matches, being the top scorer, leaving that for another team and to change all over again,” Forlan said.
“Sometimes those changes don’t end up well or they need some time to yield a result and he’s finding that in Paris.”
Cavani has scored 223 goals in his 11-year career. He has scored double-digit goals in each of his last eight seasons and at least 30 goals in all competitions in four of his last five. While representing Uruguay, Cavani has scored 28 goals in 78 appearances, tied for fourth in his nation’s history.
