PSG striker demands massive money to leave Ligue 1

Over the past few seasons, Edinson Cavani has become increasingly frustrated at being forced to play out wide, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic being PSG’s first option to play in a centre forward position

Juventus will have to dig deep into their pockets to lure Edinson Cavani away from Paris Saint-Germain, as the former Napoli striker wants to earn €14 million gross per year.

It would be something of a surprise if the 29-year-old opts to stay with the Ligue 1 champions after the current season. The Uruguayan has made no secret of the fact that he wants to be played in a central position up front, which he currently isn’t at PSG.

A number of big European clubs have expressed their interest in Cavani, but the Old Lady have been leading the race to sign him, together with Manchester United.

The Red Devils would reportedly be open to paying around €50m for his services, which would still mean a loss for the Paris club as they paid Napoli €65m for the forward back in 2013.

Still, Juventus are not about to give up on ‘El Matador’, as they have already talked to Cavani’s entourage. The striker wants to earn €14m gross per year, which would make him the highest paid player in Serie A.

This figure would translate to Cavani making €7m net, with Roma‘s Daniele De Rossi currently being Italy’s number one earner, on €6m net per year.
