PSG - PSG: Cavani wants to leave, Tuchel understands 100% - FRENCH FOOTBALL 1

The end of the market is approaching and, for now, Edinson Cavani is still a Paris Saint-Germain player. But the trend is more than ever to an exit from the …

And for good reason, the top scorer in PSG history has officially asked Leonardo to leave the winter transfer window. Napoli’s former striker, who is atletico Madrid’s priority in January, was supported by his coach Thomas Tuchel on Tuesday. Present at the press conference, the German indicated that he fully understood the position of Edinson Cavani, who cannot be satisfied with playing public services on the bench of the alternates. In addition, the Paris coach has made it clear that if Cavani left, it would be urgent for PSG to recruit a centre forward to replace him.

“Edi is our player, my player, I am happy and if things change, well, we will adapt, we will think. It’s on the bench, it takes less minutes, it’s normal for you to lack pace, confidence, very important elements especially for goalscorers. That’s the way it is in big clubs when there are kids with great qualities, a lot of competition. It’s not an easy situation for him, I understand perfectly. It’s hard for a striker, we’ve got him in mind, that’s for sure. I’m very happy that you’re still positive, professional. If someone gets hurt, we’ll have an amazing replacement. He’ll get back on track and put someone else on the bench. It’s better when he’s with us in the group but he’s hurt in the pubis right now. You can’t give him minutes in cup games. It doesn’t help” said Thomas Tuchel, who has absolutely nothing to blame on Edinson Cavani, and who understands the Uruguayan’s departure.
