Edinson Cavani had his heart ready on a transfer to Atletico Madrid, but talks between the footballer, his club and the Los Rojiblancos have broken down only hours before the deadline.
The winter transfer window slams shut at 11pm on Friday and Edinson will stay at PSG this month. Chelsea and Man United were credited with an interest in the striker, with the Blues reportedly offering to take the goalscorer on loan after Frank Lampard made him one of his top targets.
La Liga giants thought they had won the race for Cavani, but demands from the centre-forward’s agent forced the Spanish club to pull out of the deal. A switch to Atletico Madrid now appears to be dead in the water, as Yannick Carrasco is in line for a return to his former club.
London club will be disappointed to miss out on the Uruguayan centre-forward this month, and it seems as though winter is ready to be a frustrating window for the London club. Lampard was desperate to sign a striker or attacking player, but the Blues have been unable to deliver for their coach.
