Paris St Germain forward and Manchester United target Edinson Cavani has been told a move to the Premier League would be a ‘bad idea’, according to the Daily Mirror.

The Uruguayan has continued to score goals in the French capital following his summer move from Napoli, but has reportedly grown frustrated with being played out wide by manager Laurent Blanc.

Manchester United and Chelsea have both been linked with a summer switch for the forward, but former Uruguay international Pablo Correa – now manager of Nancy in France – says his compatriot would be better off staying in Ligue 1.

“It would be a bad idea for him to go,” Correa told L’Equipe.

“I’m hearing it said that he’s unhappy at PSG, but Cavani doesn’t have an arrogant or egocentric personality like some big stars. The proof is that he’s very quickly adapted to Laurent Blanc’s system.”

Correa also rejected the claim that French football is inferior to the Premier League.

“That debate doesn’t exist in Uruguay for the simple and good reason that Ligue 1 isn’t broadcast there, unlike the Premier League or La Liga,” he added.

“On the other hand, people are interested in PSG and know that the club has the ability to become a huge team in Europe.”
