PSG to cash in on Cavani
Daily Express is reporting that Paris Saint-Germain may be ready to consider selling star striker Edinson Cavani in January.
The Uruguayan has been frustrated by Laurent Blanc’s decision to use him on the wing and he has been looking to leave the Saints for a while now.
Cavani was linked with a summer move to English Premier League, but eventually remained at Parc des Princes as the transfer window closed.
Nevertheless, PSG do not appear too keen on keeping the unsettled striker at the club and could offload him in the winter transfer window.
It is no secret that both Manchester United and Arsenal are in the market for high-quality centre forwards and they could make a move on the Uruguayan in January.
Paris Saint-Germain quickly climbed to the top of Ligue 1 standings this term and they are 1/6 to see off Bordeaux for fifth straight win.
Mandanda nears Marseille exit
French media outlet L’Equipe has suggested that Marseille captain Steve Mandanda could be leaving the club at the end of the season.
With just one year remaining on his contract, the France international had the opportunity to quit OM this summer, but he ultimately decided to remain.
Mandanda revealed few days ago that he had received a very good offer from Besiktas, but he eventually turned it down.
Nevertheless, L’Equipe seems to believe that the 30-year-old is almost certain to depart when his contract expires next summer.
There will be quite a few top sides in the race for Mandanda if his deal comes to an end, and it only remains to be seen whether Marseille can persuade him to extend his contract.
Steve Mandanda has spent last eight years at Stade Velodrome, making 302 Ligue 1 appearances for the club.
Djuricic wants to prove his worth to Benfica
Serbian midfielder Filip Djuricic is ready to fight for his place at Estadio da Luz, A Bola has learned.
The Serbia international has struggled for playing time since joining from Heerenveen two years ago, and he spent the previous season on loan with Mainz and Southampton.
Benfica officials attempted to offload the midfielder during the summer transfer window, but failed to do so and in turn the Eagles left him out of their Champions League squad.
While Djuricic was very disappointed by club’s decision, he has decided to work hard in an attempt to play himself back into the first team plans of coach Rui Vitoria.
The 23-year-old had shown great deal of potential playing for Heerenveen and Serbian national team, and he showed glimpses of quality while representing Southampton in the Premier League.
Djuricic has another three years left on his deal at Estadio da Luz and he clearly does not plan to spend the remainder of his time in Portugal on the fringes.
