Diego Forlan has urged Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani to resist a move to the Premier League.
Cavani has been linked with moves to Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal ahead of next year’s summer transfer window.
Cavani has scored 16 goals in 26 appearances in all competitions for club and country this season. Forlan, who had a failed spell at Man United between 2002 and 2004, believes his former Uruguay teammate has no reason to risk leaving PSG.
“He’s in a great moment in a great team. They’re winning, they’re fighting in every tournament,” Forlan said.
“It’s not easy leaving a place where one feels comfortable, where one has the opportunity to play lots of matches, being the top scorer, leaving that for another team and to change all over again. Sometimes those changes don’t end up well or they need some time to yield a result and he’s finding that in Paris.”
Cavani’s is a name that seems to creep up every year when it comes to who United are reportedly looking at.
However, a transfer has never materialised. United are in desperate need of attacking impetus and the likes of Thomas Muller, Gareth Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo have also been linked with moves to Old Trafford. The hope for fans is that work is being done behind the scenes ahead of the January transfer window and beyond.
