Toward the end of last season, it became increasingly clear Edinson Cavani was not happy at Paris Saint-Germain.
As he told L’Equipe (via Patrick Haond of Sky Sports) in April: “Will I remain at Paris next term? We will see at the end of the season. I am fine in Paris, but obviously there are things we have to talk about with the club, things we need to do in a different way."
Last season, the Uruguayan striker was shunted out wide to accommodate Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the centre at PSG.
"Of course it is not easy. Playing besides players like Zlatan, Thiago Silva, Thiago Motta or Lavezzi is great for any player. But for a forward used to scoring and which has to do defensive tasks now, it is not easy."
It might be easiest for Cavani to leave the French capital and find the platform and respect he believes he deserves in the Premier League.
