New Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani reveals that he will always hold former club Napoli close to his heart following his transfer to the Ligue 1 champions.

Edinson Cavani has revealed that he will always maintain a fondness for Napoli, after he completed his move to Paris Saint-Germain.

The Uruguayan forward finally ended months of speculation surrounding his future by joining the Ligue 1 champions on Tuesday for a reported €62m (£54m).

At his unveiling in the French capital, Cavani reserved a line for his former club by saying that he will always have affection for the Naples outfit.

"I want to tell the people of Naples that I will always carry them in my heart," Cavani told reporters.

"I love Naples and I want to come back one day. I love the people and I always will do, but today I am a PSG player and I will give everything for these colours.

"I wish Napoli all the best and I hope they can win more trophies."

The 26-year-old finished as top scorer in Serie A last season, netting 29 goals as the club finished second to Juventus.
