Edinson Cavani’s father says the attacker will join Atletico Madrid if he is allowed to leave Paris Saint-Germain in January.
In an interview with the Spanish television program El ChiringuitoCavani’s father claims that his son has been unfairly treated by the French club and that he must be more involved in first team football.
Chelsea have been linked to the Uruguayan, who will turn 33 next month, and Blues boss Frank Lampard recently spoke of his admiration for the player.
But Cavani’s father believes that he will go to Spain if he is allowed to leave the Ligue 1 club, where he handed over a transfer request on Saturday and with which his current contract expires in the summer.
“He wants to join another club in Europe,” said Luis Cavani. “I would like you to play here (at Atletico), yes.
“(Diego) Simeone wants it now (in January). The Paris Saint-Germain coach (Thomas Tuchel) also said he needed him to help compete in the Champions League.
“But PSG doesn’t want me to go to Atletico Madrid if it finds an agreement.
“I think there is a strong possibility that will go to Atletico, the option to join the club (Atletico) always remains in June.
“There are many other clubs but when you give your word to a team, you respect it. If tomorrow, if it is available and Atletico still wants it, I think it will sign.
“He is a player who needs time to play and today he only plays four or six minutes per game. PSG is treating him unfairly.”
