New Straits Times - - Sport -

NAPLES: Paris St Ger­main striker Edin­son Ca­vani could re­turn to his for­mer club Napoli af­ter his con­tract with the Ligue 1 club ends in 2020, he said on Mon­day.

The Uruguay in­ter­na­tional, capped 91 times by his coun­try, re­newed his con­tract with PSG in April.

He has scored a record 128 goals in 195 com­pet­i­tive games for the Paris-based club.

“Af­ter PSG I don’t know what will hap­pen but if I will want to change team I may choose to re­turn to Napoli and then go back home,” the 30-year-old told Sky Sport Italia on Mon­day .

“If one day I re­turn to Napoli I would like to re­turn in good shape.

“There­fore I say we’ll see at the end of my cur­rent con­tract which ex­pires in 2020.”

Ca­vani joined PSG in 2013 af­ter spend­ing three years at Serie A club Napoli.

He made 104 ap­pear­ances for the Naples-based team in all com­pe­ti­tions, scor­ing 104 goals.

“I don’t want to go back home when I will be too old, I would like to leave foot­ball at a high level, I wish.

“I would like to re­tire when I de­cide so rather than foot­ball leav­ing me,” Ca­vani said. Reuters
