Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani continues to fuel speculation he will leave France in the summer by describing his stint at the club ‘as the hardest years of my career’, a development which has put several Premier League clubs on red alert.
Chelsea and Manchester United have been linked with a number of the world’s top strikers as they look to reignite their attacks for next season.
Cavani, who signed for PSG in 2013, probably fits that billing and has been linked with a move away from the Ligue 1 champions for some time now.
“I have spent the three hardest years of my career [in Paris]. Positive and negative things have happened, but a player can always improve, grow, and become more mature as a player and as a man,” Cavani told French TV programme Telefoot.
“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).”
Focused on their Champions League ambitions, Cavani and his PSG team-mates host Manchester City at the Parc des Princes in the first leg of their quarter-final clash this week before the return leg at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester a fortnight later.
The Uruguayan has recently lost his place in the PSG team to Brazilian Lucas Moura, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic leading the attack but he has never hidden his desire to the team’s attack.
