“We’ve always said the same thing. We hoped he would stay at the club. It’s true that today (Sunday) he asked to leave and we are studying the situation,” Leonardo said in quotes reported by the French media.

“It is also true that we had an offer from Atletico Madrid and we did not accept it. On a financial level, it was not high enough compared to the value of the player.

“We are listening (to Cavani). After that, I honestly don’t know how it will all end. Right now we are a little more distant from Atletico because we’ve not had any contact for the past few days. Today nothing is clear.”

When asked if PSG were demanding €30 million for Cavani, Leonardo added: “In his case it is not a question of amount, but of desire. The player wants to leave. We are listening to see what we can do that is best for the group as well.”
