Paris Saint-Germain legends Thiago Silva and Edinson Cavani are leaving the French Ligue 1 side permanently this summer.
Their contracts run out this June. However, they will stay with PSG till the season is properly ended – since the French giants are in the Champions League, in the quarter-final round.
Silva, 35 and Cavani, 33, have a combined total of over 400 appearances for the club. The club is letting them go over @financial and logical” terms.
“It was a really difficult decision to take. [Thiago Silva and Edinson Cavani] are players who have had a big impact on this club’s history,” Leandro told Le Journal du Dimanche.
“You always wonder if you should carry on down the same path together or if it’s better to avoid a scenario where you’ve stayed for one year too many.
“It’s been such a wonderful journey, but we’re coming to the end. We had to make a logical decision, both in financial terms and also considering the next generation of players coming through.
“Maybe it’s the wrong decision, I don’t know. There’s never a perfect moment. The Champions League is still on the agenda and the plan is to remain in the competition with them until the end of August.”
