Manchester United signing Cavani? This is Soskjaer’s response…
The defeat to Tottenham Hotspur was disappointing, but let’s forget for a moment and discuss the discourse of signing Edinson Cavani. Coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer himself spoke up about this speculation.
This summer, there are a number of top players who have free transfers, including without a club, including Edinson Cavani. Seeing his outstanding performance, it is only natural that Uruguay players are the target of a number of European giants, including Manchester United.
According to recent reports, Cavani has actually reached a personal agreement with Manchester United. Despite his free transfer status, it is believed that the Red Devils still have to pay 10 million Euros for the player’s transfer agent fee.
At Old Trafford, Cavani is reportedly going to agree on a two-year contract, with a salary of 200 thousand pounds per week. But before his transfer to Old Trafford is completed, the player must undergo a medical first.
Before the match against Spurs at WIB, coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer spoke up about the issue. The man from Norway admitted that he could not say much as long as the transfer was not completely completed.
“I can’t say anything before the deal is finalized, if that’s the case. My mind is on the game and we have to focus on it,” said Solskjaer.
Actually, MU is not alone in the hunt for Cavani’s services, there are also Real Madrid, Benfica, Juventus, AS Roma, to Atletico Madrid who want the former Napoli service.
However, a report claims that Manchester United do have a better offer than other teams.
Cavani himself is one of the mainstay players of Paris Saint-Germain for the last few years. Even while there, he scored 200 goals and became the French club’s all-time top scorer.
But during the 2019/20 campaign, Cavani was often sidelined. Apart from being injured, he also rarely gets the opportunity to appear because of Mauro Icardi’s presence.
Finally, Paris Saint-Germain bought Mauro Icardi permanently from Inter Milan. No wonder the club is reluctant to send a contract extension to Edinson Cavani.
So far, the former Napoli player has yet to speak up about his future.
