Edinson Cavani became a free player at the end of the 2019/2020 season after his contract with Paris Saint-Germain expired. The Uruguayan was in no hurry to find a new employer. The media informed about the interest of clubs such as Benfica, Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid. Ultimately, Cavani accepted the offer from Manchester United, which earned him a salary of 10 million euros a year.
Media: Edinson Cavani wants to leave for Barcelona in the summer of 2022. A two-year contract is involved
British newspaper “The Times” reports that Edinson Cavani will not extend his expiring contract with Manchester United. The Uruguayan international is determined to join FC Barcelona at the end of the 2021/2022 season. The club from the Catalan capital would like to bring Cavani in this winter, while the priority for Barcelona is the position of a winger. Consequently, Cavani is ready to wait until summer 2022.
Edinson Cavani believes he can play at a high level for at least two more years and is eager to sign a two-year contract with Barcelona. After Cristiano Ronaldo’s arrival, Cavani plays much less for Manchester United. In the face of the health problems of Sergio Aguero and Martin Braithwaite in Barcelona, the Uruguayan could count on much more chances to play. Apart from Cavani, Barcelona is watching the situation of Karim Adeyemi from Salzburg, for whom he can pay up to 40 million euros.
Edinson Cavani only has a valid contract with Manchester United until the end of June 2022. The forward has played eight games in all competitions this season, scoring just one goal. Overall, Cavani scored 18 goals and scored six assists for the Red Devils in 47 official matches.
