PSG forward Edinson Cavani has admitted that he could leave the Ligue 1 champions in the summer, reports the Daily Express.
This will have alerted Chelsea, Manchester United, and Arsenal, who are all linked to the Uruguayan by the Express. The Premier League quartet are interested in the 28-year-old after a season in which he has managed 25 goals in 48 appearances for the Parisian side, despite largely having to play out wide.
It is his role on the wing which has pushed Cavani to making these statements, despite having a contract that runs until 2018. Captain Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been in the central striker position when fit, leaving the former Napoli man playing second fiddle to the Sweden international.
He said: “I don’t know whether I will stay at PSG. I might stay, I might leave. You never know what will happen in football. When I arrived at PSG, I was forced to play on the wing. People don’t understand how much that has influenced my performances.
“I would score a lot more if I was played as a striker. I want to play as a striker. I would without a doubt do much better in my own position.”
However, with his deal running for so long after this campaign, it means that anyone who is trying to buy the forward may have to pay a hefty price. This could be difficult under Financial Fair Play rules, and may require teams to sell players to balance the books.
