Paris Saint Germain striker Edinson Cavani has revealed why he didn’t leave the club this summer despite being heavily linked with a move away, the Daily Star reports.
The Uruguayan international was linked with moves to Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea over during the transfer window after an alleged fall out with manager Laurent Blanc.
However, he is now seen as a vital part of PSG’s plans, and with Zlatan Ibrahimovic set to depart at the end of the season, the Ligue 1 champions are hoping to keep hold of him to fill the void.
“In football, there are a lot of things that depend not on the footballer but on the club,” Cavani said.
“Often when a player decides to change club it’s not solely his choice.
“It’s a decision made in agreement with the club, which seeks the best solution for both parties.
“PSG have always shown me their desire to keep me, to make me a player for the future of the club.
“That’s important for me. It gives me a lot of energy to work.
“For three years, people have talked far too much about things that didn’t exist.
“My desire was always to stay and to reach the goals set by the club. At the moment I feel very good in Paris.”
