Fabrizio Romano delivers Frenkie de Jong to Manchester United update
Edinson Cavani’s time at Manchester United has been a roller coaster ride. He had arrived on a free transfer after leaving Paris Saint-Germain and his debut at Old Trafford was nothing special as he struggled with injuries. The Uruguayan would come into its own in the second half of the 2020/21 campaign.
During this period, Cavani was one of the best strikers in the entire Premier League and that convinced Manchester United to grant him an extension.
Things didn’t go his way last season. Firstly, the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo meant he was no longer the focal point of Manchester United’s attack. And second, he struggled with fitness and fitness throughout the campaign.
So, it was no surprise that he left Manchester United at the end of last season when his contract expired and now it looks like Cavani could be heading to Spain, although many rumors had it. linked to a return to South America. .
Cavani agrees to join the Spanish club after leaving Manchester United
As Marca report, Villarreal have reached an agreement in principle with Cavani. They have to drop the players first before the deal is done and Paco Alcacer is the one who might be on the way out.
It remains to be seen how things unfold. Villarreal had a deep run in the Champions League last season, surprisingly managing to reach the semi-finals. But they failed to qualify for Europe’s elite competition this time around. Could a 35-year-old Cavani prove to be a good addition for the Yellow Submarine?
Back at Manchester United, the Red Devils could also make another forward addition, although Anthony Martial’s magnificent pre-season form has raised hopes he could be the solution to their problems.
