The Sweden’s striker return to fitness was a huge boost to Blanc’s side as they became the first team in French football history to secure a major domestic treble.

Cavani said: ‘To play and train alongside Ibrahimovic is very special because, for me, he is one of the best footballers in the world.

‘Sharing a dressing room and a pitch with him is special. You learn a lot. It’s a different experience.’

The pair scored over 50 goals betweean them as PSG enjoyed a season to remember, with the Champions League the elusive crown Blanc and his side will be hoping to secure next season after reaching the quarter-finals this term.
