Man United transfers: Edinson Cavani gives update on PSG future

Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani is happy in the French capital despite reported interest from Manchester United

Edinson Cavani says he is happy at Paris Saint-Germain despite reported interest from Manchester United.

The Paris Saint-Germain forward has been linked with a move to the 18-time English champions after a mixed campaign in the French capital.

I have a contract with PSG that I have to respect. I feel very good at Paris, where I’m happy, and I have always said that

Uruguay international Cavani still scored a respectable 18 goals in 35 Ligue 1 appearances for Laurent Blanc’s side last season.

And the 28-year-old is relaxed about his PSG future, insisting the Ligue 1 holders are aware of his intentions beyond the summer transfer window.

“Listen, lots of things were said last season, and I think that could have been avoided,” Cavani is quoted as saying by ESPN.

“What I can say today is that the club knows very well what my objectives are and what my way of thinking is. That’s the most important thing.

“I have a contract with PSG that I have to respect. I feel very good at Paris, where I’m happy, and I have always said that. I have just spoken to the club about certain details that I don’t want to talk about.”

Only Sweden international Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored more goals than United target Cavani for the Parisian-based outfit.

However, the 28-year-old striker is reportedly unhappy to be behind the towering Swede in the pecking order at Parc des Princes.
