Edinson Cavani axed from PSG squad amid Man Utd, Chelsea and Atletico transfer links

Edinson Cavani’s possible PSG exit has moved one step closer after he was left out of their latest matchday squad.

The Uruguayan asked to leave the club last week with Chelsea, Manchester United and Atletico Madrid on the lookout for a new striker.

PSG boss Thomas Tuchel has been coy over the 32-year-olds future as he plans for their latest Ligue 1 outing, but made an admission over his plans on Saturday.

The German boss added: “It’s a little bit the same thing with Edi.

“He has been training with us for the past few days, but the situation is not clear for him either.

“And for that, he will not be available for tomorrow.”

Cavani hasn’t featured for the Parisians since January 12 and has only scored once since the end of August.

PSG are likely to prefer a permanent exit for the striker who they signed from Napoli for around £55m back in 2013.

The former Palermo man has more than paid that back with 198 goals in 292 outings, helping his side to five league titles in six seasons.

While United are more interested in a short-term deal, Chelsea could be tempted to spend after having their transfer ban reduced last month.

Frank Lampard has been open about his thoughts over Cavani in recent weeks, but insisted that no deals are almost completed.

He said: “He’s a great player. I played against him and I always loved his mentality.

“Obviously his goalscoring record speaks for itself. I’m not absolutely aware of what the situation is, so we’ll see.

“I think we are young and we know about the transitions. The idea of bringing in experience is something I’m not absolutely looking away from.

“Sometimes the young players need a little bit of help.”
