Cavani Likely To Stay After Zlatan Injury

Paris Saint-Germain have confirmed they will be without Zlatan Ibrahimovic for the next six weeks, which means Edinson Cavani is likely to stay at the club.

Ibrahimovic suffered his hip injury in the 2-0 win over Bastia on the weekend and PSG released a statement to explain the nature of his injury.

It read: "Zlatan Ibrahimovic suffered a partial avulsion of the left oblique muscle under the 12th rib and will not play again for some time. His absence is estimated at approximately six weeks.”

The injury means that Cavani is likely to replace Ibrahimovic in the main striker role and is now unlikely to leave the French champions until the end of this transfer window.

Cavani had been linked with a move to Manchester United, and Arsenal as well as Liverpool have reportedly also enquired about his situation.

PSG also confirmed that Thiago Motta will miss the next game after sustaining a broken nose following the head-butt by Bastia striker Brandao on Saturday.
