Edinson Cavani is open to staying at Paris Saint-Germain or leaving for another team. One thing we know for sure is that he intends on playing for several more years.
Speaking to PSG’s official magazine (via Goal), Cavani commented on his future with his current contract set to expire on June 30.
“My career will last for maybe several years still, here or elsewhere, I don’t know.”
“I’ve spoken about it a lot with my entourage. I’ve always said that I would like to quit football rather than football quitting me.”
If it were up to PSG supporters, Cavani would stay. In a recent poll from L’Equipe, 77 percent of the more than 46,000 votes cast were for El Matador remaining at the Parc des Princes.
Cavani was close to leaving the Ligue 1 giants last January when a deal with Atlético Madrid was close to being completed but the financial aspect couldn’t be ironed out and it collapsed.
Regardless of where Cavani plays out the rest of his career, the Uruguay international has a clear understanding of when it will be time to call it quits.
“I’d really like to finish having given everything. To get to that point where I’d say, ‘Guys, this is the point where I have to go.’ I don’t want life to lead me to play when I wouldn’t be capable of giving my best. The day will come where it will be obvious that the time’s come to move on to something else.”
If Cavani does leave France, PSG will more than likely have to sign Mauro Icardi to a permanent deal once his loan expires, although some believe the club would be better off without either of the strikers.
