Agent: ‘Not possible’ for Cavani to leave PSG after Zlatan exit

Date published: Wednesday 25th May 2016 10:33

Edinson Cavani’s agent believes the Paris Saint-Germain striker will stay with the Ligue 1 champions this summer. 

The Uruguay striker has been linked with a host of Europe’s top clubs over the last year, with Premier League sides Manchester United and Arsenal said to have been among the hitman’s suitors.

But, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic leaving PSG this summer, Cavani’s agent believes the Parisians will be loathe to lose two top-class strikers.

Claudio Anellucci told Radio CRC: “I do not think that it is at all possible for [Cavani] to quit PSG.

“After the departure of Ibrahimovic, PSG want to keep their existing squad and reinforce in order to win the Champions League. PSG cannot lose two strikers.”

Gonzalo Higuain: Scored a hat-trick last night

Napoli star Gonzalo Higuain is understood to be a target for PSG, and Cavani’s agent has welcomed the prospect of the two forwards linking up at the Parc des Princes.

Anellucci added: “If he [Higuain] came to PSG, Cavani would be happy because it is always a good thing in terms of winning the Champions League.”
