To pay tribute to Edinson Cavani’s desire to make his Manchester United debut at the Parc des Princes on Tuesday night, a picture of Paris Saint-Germain is posted on social media to celebrate his 50th birthday in August.
All of the club’s favorite players were one in the bar. Cavani. The man nicknamed El Matador. PSG’s all-time top scorer.
It was a minor matter that says a lot about the way Cavani is leaving the French capital because of a contract dispute. The fans, who adored him and did not escape the player’s attention, were heavily criticized.
Edinson Cavani is desperate to make his Manchester United debut against PSG
After seven months without a competitive game and only two training sessions with his new teammates at United, it remains to be seen whether Cavani is still fit enough after two weeks of quarantine to sit on the bench on his old tamping ground at the age of 33.
However, there is no doubt about the Uruguay’s determination to prove to PSG a point bumpier than a record of 200 goals in 301 games suggests after a seven-year career in France.
The first three years were spent in the shadow of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, whose presence forced Cavani to play wide before the Swede joined United in 2016.
“As soon as I got there, they tried to oppose us,” Cavani said in a rare interview with French magazine So Foot this summer. “We have different personalities, but this antagonism doesn’t exist.

‘I’m not interested in being a football phenomenon. But being a center forward, feeling it, is something I have in my blood. ‚
Cavani was punished by then PSG boss Laurent Blanc for returning late from a Christmas break in Uruguay and missing a winter training camp in Morocco. The player wanted to spend more time with his two sons, Bautista and Lucas, who lived with his ex-wife Maria Soledad.
A year later, rumors of further disciplinary problems surfaced shortly after Cavani upset Blanc again by refusing to shake hands when he was substituted off in a game against Troyes.
After Ibrahimovic’s departure, he flourished, scoring 49 goals in 50 games in all competitions in 2016/17 as PSG captain. However, the arrival of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe brought him back again. The uncomfortable relationship bottomed out in September 2017 when Cavani and Neymar argued over who should get a penalty against Lyon.

Cavani won the argument and the support of the fans who backed their favorite against the Brazilian.
The Collectif Ultras Paris, which never had the chance to say goodbye, would undoubtedly have sung the song dedicated to it – based on the 1980s French hit Demons of Midnight – if fans had been dumped on Tuesday.
They admired the down-to-earth character of Salto, who is known to make the five-hour, 265-mile journey from Montevideo by bus to the family farm, where he spends time hunting and fishing. An avid bird watcher, Cavani also does ballet to improve his soccer skills.
“I grew up outdoors and went fishing on the river with my father,” says the former Napoli player, whose father Luis spent three months in prison in 2015 for killing a teenage motorcyclist who collided with his truck .
‘It builds the person you become. I attach great importance to my childhood. I am very attached to my country. It allows me not to be a big head. ‚
The fans loved Cavani’s tireless work on the pitch and his willingness to sacrifice himself for the team. Cavani lived in the same upscale Neuilly-sur-Seine suburb as Thiago Silva, Marquinhos and Neymar before moving west of Paris to Bougival but never stumbling out of a nightclub in the wee hours of the morning.
“The sacrifice gives me peace of mind and sleeps with the feeling that I have a job done,” he said. “My parents always struggled in life and tried to instill respect for each other. No matter who you are, work and sacrifice to face life. ‚
It’s pretty sad that Cavani left PSG under a cloud this summer after winning 19 trophies, including six French titles, even though his last season was interrupted by an injury.
The club blocked his attempt to leave in January and refused to extend his contract for a couple of months and play when the season started again after being suspended. In August he missed the PSG final against Bayern Munich.
After a break from work on the farm and a vacation in Ibiza with partner Jocelyn Burgardt and teammates – which led to Cavani contracting the coronavirus and considering retiring permanently to the country – he joined United as a free agent on the reporting date.
Now he’s itching for one last tango in Paris. If Cavani is fit enough to play, PSG may regret excluding him from these birthday parties.
