Cavani believes PSG can compete for Champions league title

New Paris Saint-Germain signing Edinson Cavani says he is excited to play alongside Sweden international Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The Uruguay striker, who joined PSG for a French record move of €63 million from Napoli earlier this week, said: “I know that Ibra’s a world champion, it’ll be a pleasure to play alongside him. It’s very good that he’s with us. I hope to be able to form a good partnership with him.”

The 26-year-old will be facing stiff competition to become the top scorer of Ligue 1 in the upcoming season as Monaco’s Radamel Falcao is also set to compete against him.

He said: “It’s going to be hard to be Ligue 1′s top scorer next season because we are three big strikers and our ambition is to score for the team.

“It will be very tight but very attractive to watch. I look forward to the competition. Hopefully we will be in good form and bring a lot of goals into Ligue 1.”

On why he preferred PSG over other clubs, Cavani added: “This project is very rich, very motivating, very ambitious. Honestly, I am a player who always wants to win. For me this is a club where many would like to play.

“PSG are among the top in the world and is one of the teams that can fight for the Champions League. That’s why I made this decision.”
