Edinson Cavani, a forward for Manchester United, could leave the club at the end of the season.
The 34-year-old Uruguayan is close to signing a contract with Boca Juniors, according to Diario Ole.
Cavani has agreed to leave Europe at the end of this season, and Boca is an ideal choice for him since he has supported the Argentine capital’s team since childhood.
Cavani’s contract with Man Utd expires this summer, but he has the option to extend it for another season.
“We spoke with Edinson, who has always favored Boca Juniors due to his numerous discussions with (manager Juan Roman) Riquelme on the subject. I’m sure he’d like to play and be closer to his home country so we could all be closer.
If a player is already considering returning from Europe, it goes against their success standard, but there are a variety of factors to consider. I believe you must enjoy football and find a place where you feel at ease. I believe Boca will be where Edinson ends his career and feels at ease.
Edi is leaning towards Boca, based on what we’ve discussed and what he’s discussed with Riquelme. I believe he’ll return in the middle of the year. If his current club wants him to stay, he must sit down with them and reach an agreement, or Edinson’s deal to come here must be canceled.”
Cavani had rediscovered his form since returning from coronavirus, scoring three goals in five games earlier this year, but he has been out recently due to injury, and Ole Gunner Solskjaer has been questioned about whether he will continue past the one-year contract he signed with Manchester United.
