Edinson Cavani has already set his sights on his upcoming club – just days after signing Manchester United.

The Uruguayan international joined on a hectic, hectic day at Old Trafford, alongside fellow countryman Facundo Belstree and Alex Tillis.

This came after his departure from Paris Saint-Germain, where he spent seven years and became their greatest ever goalscorer.

His arrival at United came as a blue bullet.

But Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had been desperate to sign with him for some time, and insisted his experience would be vital.

However, the striker is already thinking where his next club would be thinking – just days after signing the Red Devils.


Before moving to Old Trafford, Boca Juniors boss Juan Roman Riquelme attempted to sign him at his club.

The former Napoli killer admitted he would love to play for the Argentine team one day.

Cavani told ESPN: “Roman wrote to me with great respect, wanted to know how I was in this situation, with a very special salary and we spoke respectfully.

“Boca is a giant in the world, any footballer wants to play there.

“There were many Uruguayans who played there. It is a bit intriguing to follow our football history.

Cavani left Paris Saint-Germain in the summer

“There are some secrets from the conversation with Roman, you have to ask him if he wants to tell them. We’ll see what happens in the future.”

“It would be great to be able to play at Boca one day.”

Cavani will win £ 10m from his one-year contract with United – but there is an option to extend that for another season.

Solshire will be counting on the 33-year-old to supply the goods after coming under some pressure in the early stages of the season.

The day before Cavani was signed, United took a big hit Tottenham 6-1 at Old Trafford.

I witnessed Mauricio Pochettino’s attachment so strongly to the Red Devils to take over from Solskjaer.
