Uruguay star Cavani hints at Paris Saint-Germain exit in summer

Edinson Cavani (L) is unhappy with being deployed on the right wing at Paris Saint-Germain.

Edinson Cavani has suggested that unless Paris Saint-Germain change their playing system, he could look to leave the club in the summer.

Cavani is the most expensive player in French football history after PSG paid Napoli more than £60million for his signature.

The Uruguayan star has 21 goals to his name this season, but with Laurent Blanc using a 4-3-3 system, Cavani has had to do his work from the right wing, with Zlatan Ibrahmovic leading the line.

And Cavani has suggested that he is not happy with the situation, which had led to the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea and Real Madrid being strongly linked with the 27-year-old striker.

"Will I remain at Paris next term? We will see at the end of the season," he told L’€™Equipe when asked about his future. 

"I am fine in Paris, but obviously there are things we have to talk about with the club, things we need to do in a different way."

DIZZYING SWING

Asked about having to play wide because of the system, he said: "Of course it is not easy. Playing besides players like Zlatan, Thiago Silva, Thiago Motta or Lavezzi is great for any player. 

"But for a forward used to scoring and which has to do defensive tasks now, it is not easy. 

"I don’€™t want to talk about sacrifices because making efforts has always been part of my game. But now I am more defensive and it is more difficult because when you came, it was with other ideas and other views about your position in the team and the club.

"Playing in 4-4-2 was my vision of the team when I joined Paris. It is one of the arguments that motivated me to sign in that club. Let’€™s terminate Le Championnat and we will see what will happen."

Earlier this season Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho admitted that luring Cavani away from the Parc des Princes would certainly be an easier proposition to that of landing Ibrahimovic.

Asked about Moruinho’s comments, he added: "He probably had good reasons to say that, but I don’t know anything. I am not a journalist, I am not talking about transfers. 

"Indeed, Chelsea was very attracted to me last summer, but what is really important in their transfers? PSG showed real trust and real determination to include me in their project. When you pay such transfer fee, that is a proof you really want the player."

He was asked about reports that Chelsea and Manchester United had opened talks with his representatives in February.

"Frankly I don€’t know," he said. "Nowadays, my family is with me in Paris and if something should happen, my brother will manage it and will sit on a table with any clubs’ officials."
