Agent: No winter exit for Cavani
Uruguay striker Edinson Cavani, out of contract at the end of the season and tipped to be on his way out of PSG since Mauro Icardi signed, will not change clubs this winter, according to his agent.
Edinson Cavani - Paris Saint-Germain's all-time leading scorer with 195 goals in 287 matches in all competitions - will remain with the capital club until the end of the season despite speculation to the contrary, according to his agent.
Edinson Cavani suffered a hip injury in September and had a more complicated start to the season than in previous years. Since his return from injury, the Uruguayan striker has only been in the squad eight times in all competitions for Paris Saint-Germain (two goals). He also suffered from the arrival of Mauro Icardi at the end of the summer transfer window. The Argentine striker has been on a hot streak, with nine goals in ten matches in all competitions.
Aware of the complicated situation, Cavani's agent Walter Guglielmone, gave an interview to website CalcioNapoli.1926. He was first asked about the rumour sending El Matador to Los Angeles Galaxy:
"There are still discussions, for the moment there is nothing," he said when asked about rumours that El Matador could move to LA Galaxy, moving on to address the 32-year-old's future in general. "We're not very worried about the extension at PSG. Edi will certainly have many opportunities and above all it will be free. I mean at the end of the contract."
Guglielmone: 'Three more years to play at the highest level'
And the Cavani clan wants to explore all possibilities: to stay in Europe or return to South America.
"It will depend on the club's project. Edi has at least three more years to play at the highest level. He can play for any major team in Europe," explained Guglielmone, also noting that there is plenty of interest among clubs in Italy's Serie A, where Cavani made his name. "Yes, it's a possibility. There are contacts, but I can't say anything."
However, the clubs will have to wait, as the Uruguayan does not plan to leave Paris Saint-Germain during the winter transfer window.
Said Guglielmone: "He will stay."
