31-goal striker had no intention to join Arsenal or Man United

Paris Saint-Germain star Edinson Cavani has revealed that he had no intention to leave the club amid interest from Arsenal and Manchester United, according to reports from talkSPORT.

Cavani was heavily linked with a move to the Premier League during the summer, with the English duo desperate to sign a striker in the transfer window.

However, the Gunners chose to keep faith in Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott while United spent £36million on Monaco youngster Anthony Martial.

Despite the interest, Cavani claims that an exit was never on the cards as he is very happy playing for the Ligue-1 champions.

“In football, there are a lot of things that depend not on the footballer but on the club,” he said.

“Often when a player decides to change club it’s not solely his choice. It’s a decision made in agreement with the club, which seeks the best solution for both parties.

“PSG have always shown me their desire to keep me, to make me a player for the future of the club. That’s important for me. It gives me a lot of energy to work.

“For three years, people have talked far too much about things that didn’t exist. My desire was always to stay and to reach the goals set by the club. At the moment I feel very good in Paris.”

PSG will travel to Ukraine to face Shakhtar Donetsk in their next fixture, with Laurent Blanc’s men hoping to maintain their current unbeaten run this season.

Meanwhile, Arsenal have just come off a shock 3-2 loss to Olympiakos, and Man United will host Wolfsburg at Old Trafford this Wednesday evening.

Cavani, 28, made 51 appearances in all competitions, scoring 31 goals.
