Edinson Cavani will be departing Paris Saint-Germain without a proper send-off due to the coronavirus pandemic. He also chose not to extend his contract for another two months to take part in the club’s UEFA Champions League run in August.
Le Parisien reports that a couple of the reasons why Cavani chose to depart is that he is annoyed by the attitude of the current leadership at the capital club.
Perhaps that might explain why manager Thomas Tuchel started El Matador in both fixtures against Borussia Dortmund in the Round of 16 of the Champions League as an attempt to smooth over any differences between the player and club. Unfortunately, it didn’t seem to work.
Furthermore, the French media outlet reports that he could have an arrangement with his future club already in place. However, they’re citing this information through a family member, so we’ll see how accurate the source is once Cavani is allowed to sign a contract with a new club after June 30, when his current deal expires.
Nonetheless, it’s unknown whether or not Cavani will return to France to pick up any personal belongings at the Camp des Loges or he’ll have someone pick that stuff up for him. He wasn’t at the training facilities on Monday when the players reported.
With no send-off from the supporters or video tribute and possibly not returning to France, it’s a sad ending for PSG’s all-time leading scorer.
