Paris St Germain manager Laurent Blanc has stated that he is willing to change the tactics of his team in order to help Edinson Cavani rediscover his form. The Uruguayan striker was a mega money signing for the club only a few years ago, but he has been linked with an exit this summer. However, Cavani failed to secure a move away from the French club as the transfer deadline day came to an end without much fanfare with regard to the French club. He is looking set to stay at PSG until next summer and manager Laurent Blanc says that he is ready to make some changes to the tactics in order to keep Cavani happy.
PSG have reiterated throughout the summer that they do not intend to sell the forward and this latest move from Blanc appears to hint at the same. Cavani was largely used on the wings last season, as Zlatan Ibrahimovic was the preferred choice up front. The Swede continues to hold the importance at yesterday, but it is likely that Blanc may go for a system that has two central strikers at the same time. PSG have made a tough start to the defence of their title after allowing the likes of Bordeaux and Marseille to lead the table the early weeks of the table.
“Yes why not? On Saturday? We’ll see with the players. We have to consider the health of everyone. We have some minor health problems with some players. Last year, the team evolved into one system. This year, we may be able to evolve into another, especially to save some players. The coaching staff and I need to evaluate whether it can be as effective as a system we already know,” said Blanc. Arsenal were linked with Cavani until the last few days of the transfer window.
