PSG duo of Edison Cavani and Thiago Silva will be waving their goodbyes at the Parc des Princes at the end of the season.

According to PSG's Director of Football, Leonardo their contracts will not be renewed.

Cavani joined the club from Napoli in 2013, he has become the club's All-Time highest goal scorer.

Brazilian Defender, Thiago Silva teamed up with the French Club in 2012 from AC Milan.

"Cavani and Thiago Silva? Yes, we are coming to the end,” Leonardo told the Journal de Dimanche.

"The idea is to continue playing with them until the end of August.

"It was a very difficult decision to make; these are players who have marked the history of the club.

“Their stories were so beautiful. But yes, we are coming to the end.

"We had to make a logical decision, economically speaking and with regard to the generation that is coming through.

“Maybe we are wrong, I do not know, there is never a perfect moment. Now the Champions League is still in sight and the idea is to continue competing with them until the end of August. How it can be done is not yet clear [legally].”

Leonardo also confirmed that Layvin Kurzawa and Thomas Meunier are also likely to leave in the same manner, but this is not yet totally certain.
