Cavani: PSG can win the Champions League

The Uruguay international is keen to agree a contract extension in Paris, as he aims to help them become one of the biggest clubs in the world


PSG forward Edinson Cavani believes that anyone can win the Champions League, and is hoping this year will be PSG's turn to take the crown.

The Ligue 1 side have never lifted Europe's biggest trophy, with the 1996 Cup Winners' Cup their biggest continental achievement so far.

In the past two seasons they have won all four domestic trophies, but this term Cavani hopes the club can make a proper impact in Europe.

The 29-year-old is in discussions over a new contract in the French capital, and believes that anything can happen in football - particularly in the Champions League knockout stage.

"Winning the Champions League depends on many things. Only one team gets to win it, and in football, you never know," Cavani told Goal

"Even if a team has the best players, it doesn't mean they will always win. See for example Atletico Madrid or Juventus, a very agressive team, that didn't seem to have a chance against the other with the best players of the world, but ​they got to the finals.

"I wish this year we win the Champions League, but if not, we will continue working hard to achieve that big goal."

Cavani is currently under contract until 2018, but is in negotations with the club about extending his stay until 2021.

He is eager to agree a new deal with Unai Emery's side, and believes that PSG can become one of the best teams in the world in the next few years.

"​One of the reasons that helped me make the decision to want to stay at PSG are the goals of the club," the Uruguay international continued.

"The team is growing and aims to be a big team, win big things, and become one of the best teams on the world.

"They are doing great work, and I appreciate that. All those objectives are appealing to me, and make me want to stay.

"I'd like to accomplish the goals with them and give the best I have. To stay and to be able to live that is special. That's the first thing I thought when I got to PSG and this beautiful city."
