Paris Saint-Germain forward Edinson Cavani has admitted that the January transfer window was a ‘difficult’ time for him as a move away from the club was not finalised.
Cavani, 33, looked destined for the exit door in Paris with a host of European clubs including Atletico Madrid, Chelsea and Manchester United interested in signing the Uruguayan. However, a move failed to materialise and the striker is now likely to leave the Parc Des Princes in the summer.
The front man scored his 200th goal for PSG on the weekend against Bordeaux in Ligue 1 and said it was a ‘special moment’ after a hard month.

‘I’m like that, a little emotional,’ he added. ‘I looked at my family who is there, always behind me, pushing me, giving me love.
‘In the end, that’s what makes you move on. It gives me a lot of emotion and that’s why I’m a little like that.
‘We have to push again and I hope to continue to make beautiful things here.’
