Hard Work from Edinson Cavani Is Paying off, says David Trezeguet

Former French international David Trezeguet believes that Paris St Germain are being pushed to new heights by none other than Edinson Cavani.

The club managed a 4-0 rout of Barcelona, widely regarded as one of the best teams in the world, in the last 16 of the Champions League. Even though Angel di Maria scored two goals in the game, it was a result largely masterminded by the brilliant centre forward performance of Edinson Cavani. For long, Cavani sat in the shadows of Zlatan Ibrahimovic. There were even rumours about the player considering a move away from the French club as a result of being consistently played out of position despite having cost more than £ 60 million from Napoli.


Unai Emery believes Edinson Cavani's match-winning double in Paris Saint-Germain's 2-0 defeat of Bordeaux will improve his team-mates' confidence in the Uruguay internal.

The Uruguayan broke the deadlock with a powerful header, then adding a second before the break with a beautiful flicked finish from Layvin Kurzawa's cross.

Cavani Continues Irresistible Form after a Brace against Bordeaux

Edinson Cavani finally looks to be enjoying his time out in the limelight after the departure of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The striker has been in impeccable form over the last couple of games and he took his tally to 8 goals for the campaign after another rout against Caen. The Uruguayan first showed signs of coming back to form in the Champions League match against Arsenal. A goal against the gunners was to be his second in three games. He has taken on the confidence provided by these two goals to the next level quite literally

Edinson Cavani may return to his former club Napoli

PSG striker Edinson Cavani has stated that he could one day return to his former club Napoli, with whom he shares a special relationship, but only if current president Aurelio De Laurentiis does not remain at the club.

Cavani fell out withDe Laurentiis before his massive £ 60 million move to Paris St Germain. The Uruguayan was linked with several other clubs like Real Madrid and Manchester United, but he was able to make a move only to PSG since Napoli reportedly demanded a lot of money. At that time, PSG were the only club capable of paying such a huge figure for a 27-year-old striker.


The rumours surrounding Edinson Cavani does not seem to go away even after the end of the transfer window. He continues to be linked with moves to the likes of Arsenal and Manchester United in January.

Due to the injury troubles faced by Zlatan Ibrahimovic at the start of the season, Cavani has been getting more game time as the central striker. The Uruguayan has stated on several occasions that he is not ready to play out wide due to the presence of Ibrahimovic. His goal return has suffered as a result of playing as a winger.

Cavani In Rumors Of PSG Move

Edinson Cavani has done little to arrest the rumours that have been linking him with a move away from PSG in the summer after admitting that he cannot deny interest from a club like Manchester United should they make an offer in the summer. Cavani has been stating throughout the season that he has been unhappy with the club, but this has been his first season at the French capital after his £ 60 million move from Napoli last summer. Despite this mega money move, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been the preferred choice upfront for manager Laurent Blanc.


PSG striker Edinson Cavani has increased the possibility of leaving the French capital in the summer by saying that he is unhappy with the tactics at the club.

Cavani is regarded as one of the finest strikers in world football and he made the move to PSG in the £ 62 million deal from Napoli. This has made him one of the world’s most expensive transfers, but in the club that is rich with Qatari money, he is just one another player. He has been used on the wings in a 4-3-3 formation, which does not exactly suit his taste.


Uruguay coach Pablo Correa has warned striker Edinson Cavani against a potential move to Chelsea in the summer. The Paris St Germain striker is regarded as one of the best in the world, but he has struggled to get the same fame since a £ 60 million move to the French capital.

He has been consistently overshadowed by Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Even though he has scored 21 goals in 31 matches for the club, the record of Ibrahimovic continues to dominate the headlines. As a result, he is widely expected to be sold in the summer.


Jose Mourinho has dismissed transfer rumours linking Chelsea with a move for PSG striker Edinson Cavani. Despite having arrived at the French club only in the summer for close to £ 60 million, Cavani has been linked with a move away from the French capital after failing to find his best form in the last six months.
