The Uruguayan gives a fairly underhand comment on the future of his team mate.
Paris Saint-Germain’s club record signing Edinson Cavani has given his view on team mate Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who has been targeted by former manager Carlo Ancelotti at Real Madrid.
Since Cavani’s arrival at the Parc Des Princes the future of Ibrahimovic has been uncertain and the Uruguayan has given his opinion on where the Swede will be for this upcoming season.
“His departure would not disappoint me. But it would definitely surprise me,” the 26-year-old was quoted by Football Italia.
The Sweden international was in great form for PSG in 2012/13, scoring 35 goals in all competitions and helping the club to their first Ligue 1 title in 17 years.
Yet the £55m signing of Cavani, coupled with Ancelotti’s departure to Madrid, has left Ibrahimovic unsettled in Paris.
The new acquisition was in similarly good form for former side Napoli, with the 26-year-old netting 38 times and seeing the Serie A club qualify for the Champions League as runners-up in Italy.
Both forwards operate in a similar way and it’s thought by many that Cavani and Ibrahimovic would not be able to play at the same time.
This has led to speculation that one will have to leave and as the club’s record signing this summer, it will not be the South American.
Meanwhile at Los Blancos, Ancelotti is on the lookout got a new attacker after selling Gonzalo Higuain to Napoli and the Italian and Ibrahimovic had an extremely good working relationship at PSG.
