Edinson Cavani is officially going to leave Paris Saint-Germain this summer. The club’s sporting director has confirmed Cavani’s exit. Cavani’s contract is set to expire later this month. However, Cavani is to remain with the club until PSG’s Champions League run is finished. The Champions League is rumored to resume and finish in August.
Cavani’s departure from the French capital has been many months in the making. At this point, it’s safe to say that PSG’s signing of striker Mauro Icardi to a permanent contract through 2024, is what officially closed the chapter of the Cavani-era in PSG’s history book. Although his future isn’t very clear, his career doesn’t look like it’s over just yet. Despite dealing with injuries this season, the veteran striker still has some gas left in the tank.
In his seven years with the club, Cavani scored 200 goals, which makes him the club’s all-time leading scorer. During his time with the club, he’s won over a dozen titles. Also, the 33-year-old’s striker tenure in Paris couldn’t have had a better ending. To say that he had a very successful tenure with PSG would be a major understatement.
What Now For Cavani?
Once he’s let loose, he’ll be free to sign with any club he chooses. He’s been reportedly linked with several European clubs. Cavani has expressed his commitment to play in Europe. The striker has been linked with a move to Atletico Madrid and Newcastle United. He has expressed his desire to play in Spain, meaning that a move to the Spanish capital is very likely a possibility.
At this point in his career, the striker has amassed a list of accomplishments that is quite impressive. However, he’s still motivated and concentrated and is still passionate about the game. In other words, he’s eager and determined to continue playing.
