Speaking to reporters in the mixed zone this evening, PSG Sporting Director Leonardo confirmed that Uruguayan striker Edinson Cavani has asked to leave this month and that he expects to have more discussions with Atletico Madrid in the coming days.
“Edinson Cavani has asked to leave. We are studying the situation. We had an offer from Atletico Madrid, we did not accept it. I don’t know how this is going to turn out. We are going to discuss more. We know the situation. It is not an easy one. Find a replacement for him? It is a good question. We are thinking it over.”
Atleti had a €10m bid knocked back this week by PSG.
