Man United transfers: Edinson Cavani plays down PSG exit talk

Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani pours cold water on talk of a move away from the French capital

Edinson Cavani has moved to play down reports of a summer move away from Paris Saint-Germain.

The Uruguay international produced a forgettable performance in the Champions League on Wednesday night as Barcelona eased to a 3-1 victory over the Ligue 1 side in the first leg of their quarter-final.

Cavani has been regularly linked with a switch to the Premier League over the past 12 months amid reported interest from powerhouses Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United.

However, the 28-year-old stressed that he is happy at Parc des Princes despite the ongoing speculation surrounding his future under PSG manager Laurent Blanc.

“There’s too much talk about my future,” Cavani told Sky Sports.

“I’ll stay here and respect my contract and think about doing well for PSG.”

Neymar broke the deadlock for the Catalan side last night before former Liverpool striker Luis Suarez scored twice in the second half to seal a comfortable 3-1 first-leg win for the four-time European champions.

Cavani, who moved to PSG from Napoli in 2013, has scored eight goals in 28 Ligue 1 appearances this season.
