PSG qualified for the quarterfinals just before France went into lockdown because of the coronavirus pandemic. The French league was canceled under government orders but the domestic cup finals were not scrapped.
PSG is through to the French Cup and League Cup finals, which could be held in early August before the Champions League resumes.
PSG returns to training on June 22.
Right back Thomas Meunier, left back Layvin Kurzawa and forward Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting are also out of contract next month. The club does not intend to offer them new deals either.
“But we need to discuss the two months ahead,” Leonardo said in an interview with newspaper Le Journal du Dimanche on Sunday. “We will try to keep the whole squad together for the Champions League.”
Leonardo said it was a particularly tough not to give new contracts to Cavani and Silva, who are both very popular with fans.
“They have marked the history of the club. You always ask yourself if you should carry on together a bit longer or whether you should avoid that one year too many,” Leonardo told the newspaper. “But, yes, we’re reaching the end. We must make a logical decision, in economic terms or with a view to the next generation.”
The 33-year-old Cavani has netted 200 goals in 301 games since joining for a then-French record 64 million euros ($72 million) in 2013.
