It appears though that the player is pretty keen to get away during this window, and is not interested in seeing out his contract until the summer.

With clubs circling, PSG boss Thomas Tuchel has been facing questions from the media today regarding the current situation.

As ever with managers during the transfer window, his answer was rather coy and whilst suggesting his desire to keep Cavani, he certainly didn’t rule it out whilst admitting ‘it can happen’.

Tuchel on Cavani’s PSG future today: “We don’t want to lose a player this winter, but it can happen. We have to wait. Maybe nothing will happen. Leonardo has told to you everything. it’s the reality. Today, Edi is my player, nothing has changed.” #PSG #CFC
