Edinson Cavani completed his move to Paris Saint-Germain from Napoli on Tuesday in a deal believed to be worth $84 million. At his press unveiling, the Uruguayan international said PSG’s potential to win the UEFA Champions League was a motivating factor in his decision to sign with the Ligue 1 champion.

"It's a rich, motivating, ambitious project here and I think like that too. Sincerely, I'm a player who is a competitor, I always want to win. Many players would like to play here, they're among the best teams in the world, part of that group of clubs that can fight for the Champions League. That's an objective for me too, a very strong ambition, that's why I came here," Cavani explained.

Despite rumors linking Zlatan Ibrahimovic with a move away from the Parc des Princes, Cavani said he hoped to form a “great attacking duo” with the big Swede. "Ibra is a world champion, and for another striker it's a pleasure to play with him,” he said. “He's used to winning titles, he's a winner, that's very positive for the team. I come into this big club hoping to form a great attacking duo with him."

The deal represents the third time that the French transfer record has been broken this summer. AS Monaco earlier paid a reported $78 million to buy Radamel Falcao from Atletico Madrid; before that, the newly promoted Ligue 1 club paid FC Porto $59 million for James Rodriguez.
