Boca Juniors have had a little setback in their quest for the signing of Edinson Cavani from Manchester United, according to reports from the Argentine media.

Outlet Depo writes that the player had a word with Oscar Tabarez, manager of the Uruguayan national team, and was advised to stay in Europe for longer.

The coach reportedly believes his potential is better used in the Old Continent, and told Cavani to continue there at least until the World Cup next year.

Moreover, Depo writes that Manchester United are offering the striker a one-year extension. That’s another factor which makes things a lot harder for Boca Juniors, who want him as a free agent in the summer.

Following Manchester United’s win against Tottenham Hotspur at the weekend, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed that Edinson Cavani still hasn’t taken a decision on his future.

The Argentine media went a little sensationalist with it, claiming that was an ‘ultimatum’ from the coach for the striker to sort his future out, although it’s now becoming clear that the 34-year-old will still take a while until he does so.
