Edinson Cavani’s tenure with Paris Saint-Germain is coming to an end, and he will soon begin the process of finding a new club. Despite the significant interest from South American clubs, it doesn’t appear that the Urugyuan will be heading to his home continent.
Former PSG defender Diego Lugano, who currently works in the front office of São Paulo FC, spoke with Sport TV in Brazil to talk about the chances any South American can land El Matador.
Before the coronavirus pandemic, there were plenty of clubs from South America showing interest, most notably from Brazil and Argentina. However, due to the financial aspects resulting from the pandemic, front offices of these clubs need to be financially responsible.
“If you make a kit among all the Brazilian clubs, plus Boca Juniors and River Plate, we can’t bring him,” Lugano said. “Unfortunately. Of course, there is a friendly chat. We are always close to him, to find out if he ever wants to go back to South America.”
Although Lugano would like to see his friend suit up for São Paulo and still monitors his interest, he understands that there’s a market for him in Europe and that South American clubs cannot afford to pay high wages for a 33-year-old striker.
