Man Utd striker Edinson Cavani finally responds to fresh offer to leave Old Trafford

Manchester United striker, Edinson Cavani is reportedly unwilling to discuss a Manchester United exit until January, although there is a growing feeling he will push for an exit.

The veteran striker will be out of contract in the summer and may decide to exit as a free agent.

Despite, interest from top clubs like Barcelona, the Uruguay international is likely heading to South America, according to Luis Cavani, his dad.

“My son does not feel comfortable in England and wants to be close to the family again.” said Luis in March.

“Edinson is going to end up playing in South America. I want Edinson to play in a team that fights for something important.

“Edinson had many conversations with Riquelme and he would like to play for Boca.

“He was always seduced by the idea of playing in Boca. If he returns to South America he is leaning towards Boca.”

Barcelona have been credited with an interest as they look to replace the recently retired Sergio Aguero, whilst Boca Juniors are said to retain an interest.

At the moment, following the desire of Luis to see Edinson play in South America, Brazilian giants Corinthians plan to begin negotiations with Cavani, but have been informed he has no intention of discussing a potential move until next month.

The report suggests Cavani’s position will ‘paralyse’ any talks over a move until the new year, although representatives have stated he would like a three-year contract.

He recently told the club’s official site that he isn’t looking beyond the end of this month, refusing to make any long-term plans.

“I think one of the most important things, maybe one of the really key things here, is to always approach games and prepare for them on a strictly match-by-match basis,” Edinson Cavani said.

“That really is what my vision of football is all about, my view of how a season might pan out.

“Don’t make a lot of plans in your head about anything in the long-term. ‘So, in December or whatever the date, we’ll be there or thereabouts.’

“No, I think you have to prepare for each game like it was a final. And then, gradually, keep an eye on how things are going and what’s happening generally.”
