Paris Saint-Germain have
completed the €63 million
signing of striker Edinson
Cavani from Napoli on a
five-year deal.
The Uruguay international
has long been linked with
an exit from Stadio San Paolo, with the likes of
Real Madrid, Chelsea and Manchester City all
previously linked with his signature.
However, PSG had leaped to the front of the
queue over the past few weeks and the Ligue 1
champions have now announced the successful
capture of the 26-year-old.
“I am very happy to announce the arrival of
Cavani for five years,” club president Nasser Al-
Khelaifi told reporters.
“It was not easy. Everyone wanted Cavani but he
is here at PSG and I’m very happy about that.”
Cavani added: “I am very happy to be a part of
this project and to be here and I have to thank
everyone who worked on this – my agents,
Leonardo, everyone who mmade this transfer
“I come with a lot of confidence and a lot of
desire to do well. It’s a very motivating, ambitious
project. I’m a player who always wants to win. It’s
one of the top clubs in the world.”
Cavani moved to Napoli from Palermo back in
2010 and developed into a key player with the
club, helping them to the 2012 Coppa Italia and a
second-placed finish in Serie A last term.
He began his professional career with Danubio in
2005 and first moved to Europe two yers later.
