Cavani: I’m happy in France
Paris Saint-Germain striker Edison Cavani has insisted that he is happy in France amid rumours that he may quit the club, according to The Daily Mail.
The Uruguayan joined PSG just a year ago in a £54 million deal but rumours of an exit have aroused the attention of Premier League clubs.
Manchester United previously made an enquiry into the availability of the player as well as Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho making it clear that he requires a new striker at the London club.
Cavani is thought to have been unhappy about having to play a wider role to accommodate star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic in a more central role at PSG.
Despite all the speculation, the 27-year-old has dismissed talk of a move and insisted he was happy in the French capital.
“I do not know what they are talking about and this is not true,” said Cavani. “The things we talk about in the dressing-room should stay in the dressing-room – I feel good in Paris and at Paris Saint-Germain.”
PSG boss Laurent Blanc also spoke out about rumours surrounding his striker and blamed the media for spreading the speculation whilst the player recovers from a thigh injury.
“It’s you who create the rumours about Cavani,” said Blanc.
“The player is injured so he can’t respond on the pitch. He has some personal problems added to that and people take advantage to create a Cavani problem. However, the player is happy here.”
