Edinson Cavani has no plans on leaving PSG

Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani doesn’t plan on leaving anytime soon after ending his three-month goal drought.

Upon suffering a hip problem in February, Cavani has struggled for fitness and missed PSG’s Champions League last-16 defeat to Manchester United.

The Uruguay international made his comeback in a 17-minute cameo against AS Monaco on April 17 and he’s since been steadily working his way back into the squad.

And Cavani was finally back in among the goals on Saturday as PSG ended a terrible run of form by thrashing Dijon 4-0 in their final home game of the season.

Angel Di Maria put the Parisians ahead in the third-minute before turning provider a minute later for Cavani. Kylian Mbappe then scored a brace to take his Ligue 1 account up to 32 goals in just 28 appearances.

Following the victory, Cavani was quizzed on his future amid talk of a potential return to Serie A side Napoli.

But the 32-year-old, whose contract will expire next season, plans to at least see out the remainder of his current deal.

“It’s beautiful [being Ligue 1 champions], these are things you keep in memory,” Cavani told Canal+.

“The fans give us love. It’s beautiful, I thank them. The future? The first thing is to respect my contract.

“I like this club, this city, I’m happy with my family. Football does not only depend on me, but I would like to stay and finish my contract.

“A return to Naples? No, I did not say anything. Of course, I will be here next year.”

Cavani is PSG’s all-time record scorer on 192 goals in 277 appearances in all competitions.

In January, he confessed that he would be open towards the idea of returning to his native Uruguay once his PSG contract expires next year.

For now, though, Cavani will hope to score once more ahead of PSG’s season finale at Stade Reims on Friday.
