Cavani wants to join Manchester City after Neymar row

By Isoccer Staff


Edinson Cavani wants to leave PSG and join Manchester City after falling out with team-mate Neymar, according to a report in Spain.

Don Balon claim that the Uruguayan is keen to sign for Pep Guardiola’s side because he believes he will get more chances to score than at any other club.

Cavani and Neymar had a public falling out after arguing over penalty and free-kick duties during a 2-0 victory over Lyon earlier this season.

The pair appeared to have put their differences aside in recent weeks, but the Spanish newspaper say that Cavani remains determined to leave France.

Cavani believes his spat with Neymar has ‘harmed him’, with Don Balon claiming that the former Napoli forward will depart PSG ‘sooner or later’.

The 30-year-old is said to have told club officials that he wants to choose his next destination, with Premier League leaders City his No 1 pick.

Real Madrid are also believed to be interested in signing Cavani in January, although that could depend on the goalscoring form of Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema.

Cavani is said to have considered linking up with Jose Mourinho at Manchester United, but currently sees a move to the Etihad as his most attractive option.

However, with Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero in scintillating form so far this season, it remains to be seen whether Guardiola will target another striker during the January transfer window.
