Edinson Cavani to stay at Paris Saint-Germain

Edinson Cavani appears to have closed the door on a potential move to the Premier League by insisting that he will remain at Paris Saint-Germain.

Cavani joined the French champions for £55million from Napoli last July, but he is reported to be unhappy at playing in an unfamiliar role as well as finding himself behind Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the pecking order.

A move away from the French capital has been mooted with Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal considering making a bid for the 27-year-old, but for now he is happy to remain with PSG.
“I am sure to stay, why would I not?” he told L’Equipe. “I’m well in Paris. I have a contract to honour. I’m calm, I’d rather be here. I feel good here. However, I know it does not depend solely on the player but also on the club.”
With Ibrahimovic preferred up front, Cavani played as a winger and deep-lying forward last season, but he has spoken to manager Laurent Blanc and is happy with what he was told.
“There were some small issues about the position I wanted to play but I feel very good about that now,” he said.

“I waited for the right moment to speak. It is important for a striker to play in a position that is natural for him. Everyone knows my position and we do not need to talk about this.”
