[Edinson Cavani tells about what helps him have an eye for goal] Fishing gives me peace, tranquility. And also, as a forward player, it helps me, with my eyes. You have to wait for the moment to attack to catch the fish. And in football my position is basically the same. You have to wait for the precise moment to attack. I wait for the fish to catch them

[Edinson Cavani on team-mate Kylian Mbappe] I believe there are some who are born with talent, who have been touched by God’s magic wand and who have class from a young age. And then there are other players who make it with lots of work. Both can turn out to be stars, but with different paths. Mbappe, for example, is a player who has an enormous potential and who is acquiring experience

[Edinson Cavani thinks Neymar can grow as a person after a summer spent in the limelight and believes he still has a lot to offer at Paris Saint-Germain] I hope that everything that has happened to him will give him the experience to grow as an individual. I think he still has a lot to give PSG, until the last day he is here as a player. He has a lot to give to football as well

Playing with great players like him, like Kylian Mbappe, I really enjoy it. Now it’s time to find the connection between us, to create a good team, a good working atmosphere of work, sacrifice and professionalism

[Later in the season, Neymar was booed by some PSG fans after taking another penalty. 7-0 up and with the Brazilian already having a hat-trick under his belt, Cavani was only one goal from breaking the club’s all-time scoring record. Once again, Neymar took and scored the spot-kick] A lot of things have been said about us. It’s true that we had some differences in the first few months after his arrival, but it’s good to come together and talk it over. After that, the social networks, the external communication… it has been exaggerated, a lot of things have been said that aren’t true

[Edinson Cavani says he is fully focused on the season ahead at Paris Saint-Germain] I already spoke about this last season and I promised, not only to the fans but also to myself, that I wanted to finish my contract here. My decision might be that I go back home to Uruguay but I’ve promised myself that I will finish this contract. That’s a certainty. And then football doesn’t always depend just on you; there’s the will of the club, the supporters

[It has been suggested PSG could look to offer Cavani a new contract] Honestly, I’m not even thinking about it. We haven’t even talked about it with the club. PSG had a bit of a difficult time at the end of last season, but everything is now being put in order. Maybe we could discuss it afterwards. I’m relaxed, whether I’m staying or not staying after the end of my contract. The only thing I know is that, like since the first day I arrived in Paris, I’m going to give everything for this shirt, this club, this city. After six years here, it’s like home, like my family. Until the very last moment, I’ll give everything

[Edinson Cavani Says Fighting Talk with Lionel Messi Is ‘Part of Football’] It’s part of football; Clasicos are like this. The truth is that it was at times a game that had friction. There were challenges and things that are part of football-especially of South American [football]. We take positives from our performance and the fact that we were able to score two goals. We still need to improve, but it’s good to end the year like this

[Cavani’s mother says striker wants Atletico move] There is an open negotiation. PSG have rejected three proposals from Atletico but my son has asked to leave and we are waiting for an agreement to be reached by both clubs. It’s complicated but he wants to play at Atletico, if not now, then in the summer. We have been wishing it for years but it does not now depend on my son but on PSG and Atletico

They are not behaving well with him, [especially] with everything he has given to PSG in the near seven years he has been there. If you don’t use him, let him go to a club that needs your goals like Atletico Madrid

[Cavani’s mum calls for Atletico Madrid president to apologise over wage demands attack & says he could still sign for them] It is not impossible that Edinson could go to Atletico Madrid in the summer, as long as the president rectifies what he said. The president of Atletico must apologise. We are not spiteful and everything can be fixed if he retracts what he said. My son is going to have offers, it is unquestionable because he is a proven forward, as he has shown in all these years. But he keeps thinking about being able to go to Atlético because he would like to play under Cholo [Diego Simeone].

[PSG forward Edinson Cavani wanted to leave with Atletico, Chelsea and Manchester United interested] It’s the team-mates who give you the goals. It’s a very special moment after a difficult month in January, but I’m here to give my best and try to have a great season with the team

I’m like that, a little emotional. I looked at my family who is there, always behind me, pushing me, giving me love. In the end, that’s what makes you move on. It gives me a lot of emotion and that’s why I’m a little like that. We have to push again and I hope to continue to make beautiful things here

[Cavani was often forced out of a natural central role by Ibrahimovic] On a certain level, there’s a connection between us that comes much more easily than with other players. I think we just need to work on it a bit harder. We haven’t been playing together for very long, and we haven’t had the proper preparation. Still, we’ve proven that there is a connection between us, even though we will need to prepare more thoroughly in order to get better results

[Edinson Cavani is hopeful he has several years left in football as a clamour grows for Paris Saint-Germain to keep hold of their record scorer] My career will last for maybe several years still, here or elsewhere, I don’t know. I’ve spoken about it a lot with my entourage. I’ve always said that I would like to quit football rather than football quitting me

I’d really like to finish having given everything. To get to that point where I’d say, ‘Guys, this is the point where I have to go.’ I don’t want life to lead me to play when I wouldn’t be capable of giving my best. The day will come where it will be obvious that the time’s come to move on to something else
