Paris Saint-Germain head coach Thomas Tuchel has said Edinson Cavani will remain at the club and not be sold on Deadline Day.
The 32-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season and has attracted interest from Atletico Madrid, whose £15m offer fell £10m short of PSG’s demand.
Atletico ended their pursuit on Thursday, and while Manchester United and Chelsea were also credited with an interest in the player, Tuchel revealed on Friday Cavani will be staying at the Parc des Princes beyond this window.
“There are worse situations in life than staying at PSG,” Tuchel said. “I think he will feel good.
“He must regain the confidence and the rhythm. Edi is here, he’s a great player. We won’t change this group and that’s good.”
