Cavani & Meunier 'won't sign short-term contract extensions to play in UCL'

Paris Saint-Germain face being without all-time record goalscorer Edinson Cavani and defender Thomas Meunier when they return to action in the Champions League.

RMC Sport have reported that striker Cavani and defender Thomas Meunier have told the French champions that they will not sign two-month extensions in order to compete in the final stages of the Champions League in August.

PSG are one of four teams who are already through to the quarter-finals. The Ligue 1 season ended early due to coronavirus pandemic.

Sporting director Leonardo has confirmed Cavani and Thiago Silva will leave the club this summer.

The pair will leave the Ligue 1 side as free agents when their contract expires.

Belgian international right-back Meunier, 28, is also out of contract and has been in talks with Borussia Dortmund.

Cavani is likely to favour a move away from the Parc des Princes in order to gain more playing time after Mauro Icardi secured a permanent switch from Inter Milan last week.

Cavani, who was also linked with Chelsea in January, has interested Inter Milan in the wake of the Icardi sale and they may also need to replace Lautaro Martinez this summer with Barcelona working on a deal.

Injuries limited Cavani to 14 league appearances for PSG this season, eight of which were as a substitute, but he still managed four goals and two assists
