Edison Cavani: Which club ahead to land the PSG striker?

Edison Cavani of Paris Saint-Germain will likely chose Real Madrid, Juventus or Manchester United for his quest of Champions League glory, believes his father.

Edison Cavani is currently unhappy at Paris Saint-Germain. The striker desires to play in his favored No. 9 position which he is currently unable to do because of Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The 29-year-old striker joined PSG from Napoli in 2013 for a deal worth around $71.13 million. However, the Uruguayan has failed to replicate his form which he showed in Italy

The striker’s father has expressed that his son remains unhappy playing for PSG. Cavani Sr. would rather see his son join a club whose ambition lies in winning the Champions League.

“I want him to win the Champions League, but he has to play for one of the few teams who can do so.” The forward’s father said, as reported by ESPN.

According to his father, Cavani should play for clubs who invest in their team to become European champions. Cavani’s father doesn’t believe that Laurent Blanc’s PSG are good enough to be Champions League contenders.

“PSG can win titles in France. They are not quick enough or lively enough. They are a slow team. When they play in the Champions League, you can see the problems.” He added.

Cavani remains optimistic about securing a transfer to a new club. Based on reports, Juventus looks like the team who should have enough in them to give Cavani the sort of football he is looking for. Real Madrid are currently stacked up with attacking options and Manchester United are in disarray.

The one and only factor that will decide Cavani’s move away from the French champions is first team football at his natural position. Any club who can offer him that as well as a shot at Champions League glory are natural contenders to land the striker.
