Edinson Cavani signs contract extension with PSG until 2020

Edinson Cavani pledges his future with the French giants Paris Saint Germain, as he signs a contract extension until 2020.

After the departure of Zlatan Ibrahimovic to Manchester United, Edinson Cavani has become PSG’s main target-man. The former Napoli man has thrived under new coach Unai Emery. The Uruguay International has been sensational for PSG scoring 44 goals in 44 matches this season across all competitions.

” I am very happy to extend my contract and my commitment to PSG,” Cavani told PSG’s official website. “As I have always stated, it was always my clear intention to continue playing for PSG, its supporters and all the staff at the club to make it one of the biggest clubs in the world”.

Cavani has complete trust in the club and its capabilities to attain all its objectives, hence he decided to extend his contract.

His previous contract was keeping him at the club till 2018 but his impressive performances and consistency has resulted in this contract extension. PSG have been very keen to pen down this contract as his regular goal-scoring habit have attracted many different suitors from all across Europe.

Cavani gives all the credit to the Club chairman and CEO Naseer Al-Khelaifi who supported him when his performances were not up to the mark. The Qatari had patience and trusted Cavani’s abilities. So from playing supporting role to Zlatan, who was the main man at that time to becoming a prolific goalscorer and PSG’s main source of goals it has been quite a long journey for Cavani.

The club CEO has considered Cavani as one of the best strikers in Europe and he also added “Edi feels great in Paris and has a veritable love affair with the club, the fans and the city. Edi is making history at the club, courtesy of his goals, but also his commitment and ambition”.”Our supporters love the way Edinson always gives everything for the colours, in every minute of every match”.

So securing Cavani’s signature is a great sign for Le Parisien and everyone who loves the club. This contract extension provides stability and also suggests that they can feel relaxed as far as the striking department is a concern at least for the time being.
