Blanc: Cavani would have big impact at PSG

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.

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.

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.
