EPL: PSG’s Cavani speaks on replacing Alvaro Morata at Chelsea
Paris Saint-Germain’s star, Edinson Cavani has responded to reports linking him with a summer move to Chelsea to replace striker, Alvaro Morata.
The 31-year-old, who scored from the penalty spot as PSG secured a 2-0 victory over Les Herbiers on Tuesday night in the French Cup final to seal another domestic treble, insisted he is happy at PSG and his future is with the Les Parisiens.
“My future is here, of course,” Cavani told reporters after winning his third trophy with PSG this season on Tuesday night.
“I think that it has been a good season and intense.
“We must enjoy moments like these. I am pleased for the supporters and to be here.
“I would like to thank Unai. I know that he gave everything for PSG each day.
“He is leaving but he should be congratulated because we can be sure that he gave the maximum for the club.”
Meanwhile, Cavani has scored 28 goals for PSG in the Ligue 1, the highest total in the division.
The Uruguay international has fallen out with Neymar, who moved to the Parc des Princes in a world-record deal last summer.
The forward, earlier this season succeeded Zlatan Ibrahimovic as the Ligue 1 champions’ all-time leading goal scorer.
