Juventus lowered their wage bill by allowing Cristiano Ronaldo to complete a move back to Manchester United in the last week of the summer transfer window.

The Turin club strengthened their attack by adding Kaio Jorge and Moise Kean to their squad. The latter re-joined the Old Lady on loan from Everton with an obligation to buy.

Italian journalist Marcello Chirico told 7Gold Sport’s program Il Processo, relayed by Area Napoli, that the Serie A side could look at a new striker when the transfer window reopens in January.

According to Chirico, along with Paris Saint-Germain’s Mauro Icardi, Juve are ‘interested in Edinson Cavani’. That’s the only information he shares about the Red Devlis frontman.

Market operator Massimo Brambati, who was also part on the show, used a past incident involving the Uruguay international to suggest why the former Napoli star may not end up at Juventus.

“I’ll tell you a background on Edinson Cavani which also concerns Napoli. Alessandro Moggi told me that he went to the striker’s home in France (when Cavani was at PSG) with Fabio Paratici to convince the player to wear the Juventus shirt,” Brambati explained.

“But he said no because he was still too tied to Napoli. He did not want to join another Italian club after the experience lived in Campania.”

Cavani arrived at Old Trafford as a free agent in 2020 and he could find it hard to get regular minutes at United, following Ronaldo’s return to Manchester.
