Part of the Argentine media got quite frustrated when at the weekend, Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said he’d like to keep Edinson Cavani at the club.
“We always speak to the players and, with the contract situation at the moment, we’re very pleased with what he’s done,” said the coach.
There’s big hope in the South American country that Boca Juniors will soon sign the striker, and with previous reports saying he could choose to leave the Red Devils in June, any updates make a big difference now.
So following Solskjaer’s quotes, part of the local press said the signing would be left for later, and other outlets believe the Buenos Aires club still have a shot at his arrival. That’s the case of El Intransigente.
The outlet writes that Boca Juniors ‘do not lose hope’ of getting the Uruguayan star in June as there’s the ‘guarantee’ that president Juan Roman Riquelme has an agreement for Cavani to join them in the middle of the year.
It’s once again claimed that Cavani has a long-time wish to go back to South America to be closer to his family, and that’s why Boca Juniors’ chances will ‘continue to be alive until the moment the player rules out the possibility’.
The 34-year-old’s deal with Manchester United expires at the end of the season, and includes an option to be renewed for a year.
