OVERVIEW OF: Cavani Set For Manchester United Exit In Summer
Manchester United Uruguayan striker Edinson Cavani reportedly has his heart set on a dream move to Argentine giant Boca Juniors in the summer.
Cavani, 34, is set to become a free agent at the end of the season, though the Red Devils have the option of triggering a one-year extension.
But it is understood that both parties have the option of pulling the plug at the end of the campaign.
And according to Argentine news outlet Ole, Cavani has decided to depart Old Trafford in order to return to South America.
They state that the ex-Paris Saint-Germain star has dreamed of playing for Boca since a young child.
It has also been claimed that Cavani’s representatives do not believe his possible contract extension will be an issue as he can turn it down.
The report also adds that Cavani would be happy to take a huge pay cut on his £210,000-a-week salary in order to join his boyhood club.
And the former Napoli ace will demand a three-year deal in Argentina as he looks to fire the side to a first Copa Libertadores title since 2007.
Quoted by Ole, a member of Cavani’s entourage said: “Unless there’s a mistake, that’s it.
“He’s decided to return now. And he has decided that it’s Boca.”
Should he make the move to Boca to link up with Marcos Rojo, he could replace Carlos Tevez, who is in the final year of his contract.
