PSG’s self made (with the help of some in the French and Brazilian media) crisis is now threatening to spin out of control if claims from Friday’s Le Parisien are correct.
Unai Emery is set to walk the plank, L’Equipe suggested Marco Verratti may not be at PSG next season, several players have been earmarked for the chop, and now Edinson Cavani is apparently considering his future.
Le Parisien go with a headline saying Cavani is ‘readying’ a departure from PSG, and towards the end of their article they link Chelsea, Manchester United and Atletico Madrid as three clubs interested in the Uruguayan.
Cavani is said to feel undervalued at PSG since the arrival of Neymar, and feels there’s a lack of respect around the place. Several instances have served to annoy the club’s top goalscorer, and that’s all leading to the consideration of an exit.
Neymar is the overriding issue and the pair can’t get along either on or off the pitch. With others including Dani Alves a part of the Brazilian gang, Cavani is somewhat isolated in the circus.
Manchester United and Chelsea have both been linked previously, and perhaps the latter have the greater need at the moment, especially given their efforts to sign Edin Dzeko.
Le Parisien believe a transfer could be worth ‘at least €60m’ to PSG, helping them with FFP.
This all seems like a roll on of the implosion which envelops PSG every time they’re knocked out of the Champions League, and the club need to get something of a grip.
Whilst Manchester United and Chelsea are mentioned, perhaps Real Madrid would be worth consideration, and also Bayern Munich if they lose Robert Lewandowksi… although €60m for a 31 year old seems rather hefty.
