Cavani determined to fight for PSG future

Edinson Cavani is determined to fight for his future and has no intention of seeking a move away from Paris Saint-Germain in the summer, Goal understands.

The 28-year-old has endured a difficult campaign despite PSG’s near total dominance of Ligue 1, and has grown accustomed to playing second fiddle to Zlatan Ibrahmovic since his €64.5 million move to the French capital from Napoli in the summer of 2013.

Blanc has been critical of Cavani’s attitude and suggested in January that he would have been willing to listen to offers for the Uruguayan.

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

“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.”

Despite the fractious nature between manager and player, Cavani, who has been linked with a string of Premier League clubs including Arsenal and Manchester United, is hopeful of prolonging his stay in the French capital.

A source told Goal: “Edinson will stay with PSG. The problems he has he knows how to deal with them like any professional. He is a team player and certainly does not feel uncomfortable here.”

Cavani is likely to be afforded the opportunity to win back his first team place and add to his 14 goals this season when PSG take on Lyon in the French Cup on Wednesday.
