Paris Saint-Germain have confirmed that striker Edinson Cavani will leave the Ligue 1 champions this summer.

The experienced striker is out of contract at the end of the month and PSG sporting director Leonardo says the Uruguay forward will leave the French capital.

“Cavani will not be with us next season. That is official,” according to reports from Diario AS.

“We are working on a deal to keep him and Thiago Silva on short term deals into August, to count on them in the Champions League.”

Cavani will leave the French capital as PSG’s club-record goalscorer, after netting 200 goals in all competitions, ahead of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Pauleta.

Just where he will go next is unclear, but the 33-year-old, who was linked with Manchester United, is thought to be keen on a move to Atletico Madrid.

Cavani has been linked with a move to Newcastle United if their potential takeover goes through, but Atletico remain favourites for his signature after failing to sign the forward in January.

In April his mother and agent Berta Gomez has confirmed that there are “many clubs” looking to secure her son’s services, but she also told Ovacion Digital that Cavani would prefer to move to Spain.

 

 

 

“Fortunately today, there are many clubs interested in signing Cavani,” she said. “He still does not know where he will play, he has three months left in Paris

“We have to think carefully. At the moment, he has no intention of returning to Uruguay, he is planning to continue in Europe and would like to go to Spain.”
