Edinson Cavani and Thiago Silva are set to leave Paris St-Germain this summer after the conclusion of the club’s Champions League campaign in August.
The 33-year-old Cavani is PSG’s record scorer with 200 goals and the 35-year-old Silva is club captain.
“It was a difficult decision to make – they are players who made their mark on the club’s history,” sporting director Leonardo told Le Journal du Dimanche.
“The stories were so beautiful. But, yes, we are coming to the end.”
