"We know what we want, and it's not about signing players," Ten Hag offered as an update. "It's about signing the right players. "We are really planning it carefully, and we...

Edinson Cavani in ‘advanced talks’ to join Boca Juniors

Edinson Cavani in ‘advanced talks’ to join Boca Juniors

Sports News
Mysport99 - Manchester United striker Edinson Cavani is in 'advanced talks' to join Boca Juniors on a free transfer this summer. Cavani has endured an underwhelming 2021/22 season with niggling injuries and poor form restricting his influence. Overall he has managed to make just 17 appearances in all competitions, scoring twice. This has starkly contrasted his 2020/21 campaign where he netted 17 goals and ended the season as United's starting striker. The arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo in the summer has cut into the Uruguayan's playing time this season when fit, and a report from the Mirror cites this as one of the reasons that Cavani has decided to leave this summer. It is said that United assured Cavani that they would not be bringing in an additional striker at the end of...
