Paris St Germain coach Laurent Blanc believes the potential capture of Napoli striker Edinson Cavani would send out a message to the Ligue 1 champions' domestic and European rivals.

The Uruguay international has been heavily linked with both PSG and Premier League side Chelsea and Blanc last week described him as "a player I love".

On Monday, the former Bordeaux boss went further and also added that he had no doubt Cavani and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, voted Ligue 1's player of the season after a superb first campaign in the French capital, were compatible in attack.

Blanc told L'Equipe: "If he was to join PSG, I would be happy.

"It would be a big sporting shot and a signal to potential opponents of PSG in France and Europe."

Regarding a partnership with Ibrahimovic, Blanc added: "I believe Cavani and Ibrahimovic are complementary."

Neither is the former France coach concerned about a possible exit by defender Thiago Silva who has been linked with a move to Barcelona.

"I think he will be in Paris next season and he has a great chance to be captain," Blanc said.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
