Arsenal and Manchester United target claims PSG exit was never likely

first_imgParis Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani claims he never tried to force through a move to Arsenal or Manchester United.The Uruguayan was linked with a move to either of the Premier League duo in the summer as both hunted for new forwards.However, the 28-year-old remained in Paris and has now claimed that was always his wish.“In football, there are a lot of things that depend not on the footballer but on the club,” Cavan told RMC.“Often when a player decides to change club it’s not solely his choice. It’s a decision made in agreement with the club, which seeks the best solution for both parties.“PSG have always shown me their desire to keep me, to make me a player for the future of the club. That’s important for me. It gives me a lot of energy to work.“For three years, people have talked far too much about things that didn’t exist. My desire was always to stay and to reach the goals set by the club. At the moment I feel very good in Paris.” Edinson Cavani 1last_img read more
