Edinson Cavani has decided to leave Manchester United at the end of the season, according to claims from South America.
Argentine outlet Olé features a story they call a ‘bomb’ today, reporting the striker has decided that these are his last months in European football.
It’s said that Boca Juniors, who’ve been heavily linked to the 33-year-old since the summer, have been picked as his next destination.
“In July he’s at Boca, that’s the idea,” Olé’s source from Cavani’s entourage said, following talks between the Buenos Aires side, his brother, and agent Walter Guglielmone.
Olé writes that the contract with Manchester United wouldn’t be a problem, since the renewal isn’t automatic, which they feel means he can leave for free at the end of the season.
They add that Cavani would take a pay cut to join Boca Juniors, demanding a three-year contract where he’d make the same as he makes in one season in England.
According to the report, the striker also asked who’d be his teammates at the Argentine side, and the signings they’re willing to make to have a strong team to compete for the Copa Libertadores’ title.
Olé finishes their story with more quotes from his entourage, which goes as: “Unless there’s a mistake, that’s it. He’s decided to return now. And he has decided that it’s Boca.”
Not long ago, the very same Olé claimed Edinson Cavani promised Boca Juniors president Juan Roman Riquelme he’d soon sign for the Buenos Aires side. His affection for the club has been made public many times.
