Edinson Cavani, seemingly always one of the main talking points during the summer transfer window, said what most footballers say when asked about his future – I'm happy, but anything is possible.

Amid reports of interest from the English Premier League, especially Manchester United, Cavani, who has had his problems in his first year with Paris Saint-Germain, despite winning the Ligue 1 title, admitted as far as he was concerned, he was going to be a PSG player come next season.

"I feel good at Paris and I count on staying," he told Ovacion when asked about his future.

Cavani, who made a big-money move from Napoli last summer, has been the subject of interest from United as well as Chelsea, with Arsenal and Liverpool also reportedly keeping an eye, and that has inevitably led to reports of a possible move away from Paris before the summer transfer window shuts tight.

While again reiterating that he wants to stay at PSG, with the club's owners backing him to shine next season, Cavani did admit a transfer could not be entirely ruled out.

"Considering how this window has gone so far, nobody really knows," he added when asked if he could envisage moving to another club in the summer.

Cavani was not a happy camper last season, after having to play second fiddle to the incomparable Zlatan Ibrahimovic, with the Uruguay international forced to play in the wide positions for much of the campaign.

With manager Laurent Blanc preferring a 4-3-3 formation, there was only room for one central striker in the team, leaving Cavani far from amused after he was apparently promised PSG would play with two strikers up front following his £50-odd million move from Napoli.

The 27-year-old revealed he had spoken to Blanc about a change in tactics and was expecting to feature more in his preferred central position next season.

"There was a discussion with Laurent Blanc before the end of the season and I think there will be a new tactical scheme this season," he added.

Louis Van Gaal and Manchester United have been linked with the striker of late, with reports even suggesting a swap deal involving Wayne Rooney going the other way could be a possibility.

However, with Cavani still having four years remaining in his current contract, any team would find it difficult to prise him away from PSG, with United also not having the Champions League carrot to dangle in front of the striker.
