After Paris Saint German secured the prized signature of Napoli striker Edinson Cavani for an astonishing fee of £55 million it now means the club has two of the most lethal strikers in world football today in Cavani and Zlatan Ibrahimovic. But the question is …. Can they play together?
You would think that two quality strikers would be able to play together easily and be able to complement each other to give the wealthy French title winners the most potent attacking force in Europe. It may not be that easy. Last season both Ibrahimovic and Cavani were the main men in their respective sides and both often played upfront on their own with attacking players either side of them.
As the Paris club secured the Ligue 1 title, the main man was Ibrahimovic who scored a sensational 30 goals in just 34 appearances which proved he was the main man at the Parc des Princes. The club’s new Uruguayan striker who was chased by numerous clubs around Europe before joining the French champions scored a remarkable 78 goals in just 104 appearances during his time in Italy with Napoli.
As you compare both of these wonderful strikers, scoring abilities, it indicates that PSG will be contenders in the Champions League this season, however new manager Laurent Blanc will be looking to stamp his own mark on the team and it will be interesting to see whether he plays both Ibrahimovic and Cavani and whether they can play together and continue to score the goals they scored last season.
If Blanc only plays one striker, who should he go with? Ibrahimovic or Cavani?
