While the 2015-16 PSG season has been all about Zlatan Ibrahimovic and his pursuit of total football dominance, his partner-in-crime, Edinson Cavani has been flying under the radar but is still viewed as one of Europe’s best strikers. Once believed to be eager to leave PSG to get out of Zlatan’s shadow and leave numerous problems he’s had in France behind, Cavani now appears set to mend the bridges between him and the Ligue 1 giants – much to the dismay of numerous Premier League titans.
In a recent interview with Telefoot [per Eurosport], Cavani admitted that he has struggled during his time in France but has grown from it and is ready to resume talks with PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi, presumably about a contract extension.
‘I have spent the three hardest years of my career [in Paris],’ Cavani said.
‘Positive and negative things have happened, but a player can always improve, grow, and become more mature as a player and as a man.
‘I am only thinking about giving everything for the next months of competition and finishing this year together with my team-mates fantastically like we did last year.
‘And then I surely have the opportunity to speak with the club, with president (Nasser Al-Khelaifi).’
Cavani joined PSG in the 2013-14 season and has proven to be a dominating force up front, scoring 75 goals over the last three seasons and leading the team in total scoring in the 2014-15 season.
Per the Metro, Man United and Chelsea have both been making overtures to PSG about his transfer since the summer, while Arsenal have also been rumoured to have interest in the Uruguayan striker.
