Money can buy you happiness isn’t it, and if not it surely is a problem solver until or unless you are Nasser Al-Khelaifi or the chairman of French club Paris Saint-Germain. According to several media reports, PSG chairman in order to restore parity in the club has reportedly offered Uruguayan striker Edison Cavani a €1 million bonus so that their star signing Neymar can take penalties.

Ever since Neymar made his entrance in the Paris club after reaching conclusion over a mammoth transfer deal with Barcelona, Edison Cavani has been a player on a different mission and has shared the limelight with the Brazlllian star with or without being on the score sheet.   

According to French news paper L’Equipe, the former Napoli striker signed a contract having a clause which states that if Cavani comes out as the league top scorer at season end then he will be rewarded a €1 million as bonus.

While the club owners seemingly have now taken a possible u-turn as reports suggest that Cavani has been offered the top scorer bonus, which is €1million (£880,000) from his contract just to hand over all the spot kicks to star boy Neymar by which Cavani doesn’t need to be Ligue 1 top scorer. 

With everything said and done, Cavani has now turned down the big money bonus from PSG which is likely to restore the ‘ego clashes’ between him and Neymar over spotkicks.

Cavani and Neymar first grabbed headlines for all the wrong reasons when they had altercations over set pieces during Paris Saint-Germain’s 2-0 victory over Lyon in France’s Ligue 1 last week. The PSG’s striking force then argued over who would take a free kick when Neymar’s Brazilian counterpart and former Barcelona teammate Dani Alves eventually interrupted the duo and took the ball out of Cavani’s hands.
