Boca Juniors confident of signing Edinson Cavani this summer1 min read
Boca Juniors are reportedly becoming increasingly confident of signing Manchester United forward Edinson Cavani on a free transfer this summer.
The 34-year-old has scored seven times and provided two assists in 27 appearances for the 20-time English champions this season following his arrival from Paris Saint-Germain.
As it stands, Cavani’s contract is due to expire at the end of June, but Man United are keen to activate an additional 12 months on the agreement to keep him at the club until the end of next season.
The Uruguay international’s future has been the subject of much speculation in recent weeks, with the experienced striker said to be uncomfortable in England.
According to Ole, Boca have already made a shirt available for Cavani, who has signalled that he wants to join the Argentine club later this year.
The report also claims that the striker has already started following Boca’s matches closely in order to get to know his potential future teammates.
Cavani has scored six Premier League goals for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side this season.
