PSG Sporting director admits Edinson Cavani transfer mistake

Paris Saint-Germain sporting director Leonardo has admitted his club made a huge mistake in letting Edinson Cavani leave the club to Manchester United.

The Uruguyan moved to Old Trafford a free transfer this summer, and Lenardo is already regretting the decision.

“At one moment, we have to say ‘what are we going to do?’ he told the club’s official media channels.

“We spoke clearly with them. It was a moment where we could not give them exactly what they wanted. It was a financial and generational problem.

“It was the moment to count on Marquinhos and Kimpembe.

“The decisions were difficult to take. Aside from that, we could have made a mistake.”

Cavani has been impressive so far for the club and even scored his first United goal in our 3-1 win over Everton last weekend.
