Cavani Transfer to Arsenal

Unhappy Edinson Cavani Keen to Leave PSG, Man Utd and Chelsea in Talks with Player, Transfer Imminent

Premier League clubs Chelsea, Man Utd, Man City along with Serie A clubs Juventus and Inter Milan are in the pursuit of PSG striker Edinson Cavani, according to reports.

Corriere Dello Sport claims that all five European powerhouses are keeping tabs on the situation of the disgruntled striker who is looking for a way out of the club.

Chelsea and Man Utd seemed to be leading the race as both of the clubs are in dire need of a striker and can promise regular playing time to the Uruguayan striker.

The Blues are in the market for a striker after their only fit striker Diego Costa suffered a shin injury last week, while Man Utd have struggled to score goals this season and Louis Van Gaal wants a world class striker to share the burden with Wayne Rooney.

Cavani himself is unsettled at his current as he is not played in his preferred position by manager Laurent Blanc. Blanc admitted last week that there is a problem with the player’s behaviour, and he could leave the club in future.

He said: “There is a problem with Cavani’s behaviour, but my job is to think of the entire squad as a collective, ” said Blanc.

We did hold a staff meeting and among the various issues, we discussed were Cavani and his complaints. The desires of the individual can’t affect the rest of the team. I believe that he can score here, but I understand if he wants to consider other career opportunities.

Blanc again touched on the subject of Cavani yesterday ahead of the Tuesday’s Coupe de France game against Toulouse. He claims that it’s not his job to keep the Uruguayan happy by playing him in his favourite position.

I’m not here to make him feel comfortable,” Blanc told a news conference on Monday. “I’m here to win matches.

“I put him in a central position with Ibra, and I said that Lucas could play behind them. At half-time, I saw that it wasn’t working, and I went back to a three-man attack. Sometimes it’s simple — you don’t have to look too far.”
