PSG preparing to allow the Uruguayan striker to leave.

Cavani and Ibrahimovic have endured a fractious relationship since Cavani was signed in a huge deal from Serie A outfit Napoli, but the report suggests that the two have had a serious falling out.

That could lead to Cavani being allowed to leave the club in a bid to keep Ibrahimovic, who has become the club’s talisman, happy.

If PSG do decide that Cavani is free to leave than there will be no shortage of interested parties, with Manchester United and Arsenal linked as the most likely contenders by the report with both Louis van Gaal and Arsene Wenger being big fans of the player.

Cavani’s goalscoring record in Ligue 1 is impressive and he is still rated as one of the finest strikers in world football, despite playing in a relatively underexposed league, and would cost an exorbitant fee if any Premier League side did opt to move for him.
