PSG-Manchester: Edinson Cavani did not make the trip to Paris

He will not come back to his garden. In any case, not right away. Edinson Cavani did not take the plane on Monday with his new partners from Manchester United, whom he joined free in early October. This Tuesday, at the opening of the 2020 – 2021 edition of the Champions League, PSG receives the Mancuniens in the closed door of the Parc des Princes.

The former Parisian (2013 to 2020), who trained this Sunday for the first time with his teammates, no doubt dreamed of this snub, two weeks after his signing in England and 7 months after his 301st and last match in the Parisian jersey, during the qualification against Dortmund at the Parc (2-0).

On his arrival on the banks of the Mersey, El Matador, coming from France, had to observe two weeks of quarantine. This therefore delayed his collective preparation in more than 7 months without a match, which is huge in the career of a footballer, which is more at his age (33 years). Coach Ole Gunnar Solskjær was unwilling to take any chances with a reinforcement who has signed up for the next two seasons. He explained Monday evening that he deemed him too short physically to apply for a place in the group.

He would not have started the match anyway and his contribution for a few minutes would have been uncertain. More surprisingly, the captain of MU Harry Maguire, who has just chained several matches in selections and with the Red Devils, does not make the trip either like Greenwood, Lingard and Bailly.
