Nobody dared to imagine Saturday see Edinson Cavani treading the lawn of the Parc des Princes for the last time in this jersey red and blue. And yet. If the Uruguayan leaves the PSG this summer, it will be necessary to remember this victory against Dijon (4-0). Not the most difficult of the year, nor the most epic. But one last at the Park, it does not deviate from a hand. All fans present the farewell parties of Pauleta in 2008 or Rai in 1998, planned upstream, can testify.
Still far from being recorded by the club, still less by the principal concerned, the possible departure of Cavani has been in everyone's mind for a few weeks. The question makes crazy the strong defenders of the South American striker. It is understood by those who anticipate the economic needs of the PSG. But all would like to offer "Edi", a daddy happy with a little girl since Friday, a worthy exit from his rank: that of top scorer in the history of the club with 193 goals in 278 games.
He wants to finish his contract in 2020
If Kylian Mbappé heard for the first time this season a small song to his glory off the stand Auteuil, Cavani was indeed the most applauded player of the evening. From the warm-up of both teams as after his goal, that of 2-0 (4th), registered head on a perfect center of Di Maria. Captain for the second time of the season at kickoff, the former striker of Naples has received a flood of love from his audience. As at each of his appearances since 2013 or almost. He never had the genius of a Ibrahimovic or a Neymar. Neither their fantasies nor their escapades. A fighter and a scorer that the Park idolizes.
