Unhappy striker Edinson Cavani eyes January Paris Saint-Germain exit

Unhappy striker Edinson Cavani eyes Paris Saint-Germain exit

Cavani is out of contract next summer with top clubs lining up for him.

The Uruguayan has been pushed out of the starting line-up by Mauro Icardi.

Edinson Cavani is reportedly unhappy and considering his Paris Saint-Germain future after finding himself increasingly warming the bench at the Parc des Princes. Thomas Tuchel has been placing his faith in on-loan Inter Milan striker Mauro Icardi over the 32-year-old Uruguay international.

Cavani is PSG’s top scorer of all time and one of the club’s longest servants but the striker has failed to win back his place in the side after recovering from a hip injury.

He was forced to watch from the bench as Kylian Mbappe destroyed Brugge in the Champions League and has been overlooked in favor of Icardi in PSG’s last two Ligue 1 outings with the Argentinean scoring three times in the fixtures against Nice and Marseille. When he was given a 19-minute run-out in Le Classique, the Uruguian was shunted out to the left wing.

Having been a regular starter ever since joining PSG from Napoli in 2013 for a fee of €64.5 million, Cavani is none too pleased to find himself surplus to requirements and is considering a January exit, according to L’Equipe. Icardi’s excellent form since his arrival in Paris has PSG eager to meet the fee Inter are asking to make the move permanent and at six years younger than Cavani it seems that the Uruguayan is being gently ushered out to pasture.

Cavani’s contract expires next June and he will be free to negotiate a pre-contract in January but he may also consider a change of scenery in the new year if the right offer comes along.
