Boca Juniors make room for Man United striker Edinson Cavani

Initially he seemed stuck on whether Man United would keep Edinson Cavani next season, but his injury issues have led to doubts.

There is still no sign of a signed extension or an option taken, allowing the other parties to make a move, and a report from Infobae said Boca Juniors was doing all they could to bring him in.

Firstly, they get one of their foreign players to apply for an Argentinian passport in order to free him up a place in the squad, but they also got club legend Juan Roman Riquelme involved.

Riquelme is currently involved behind the scenes in a vice-president role, and it is suggested that he be in regular contact with Cavani in an attempt to persuade him to join the club this summer.

Looks like Cavani is keen on moving to Boca and he would become the undisputed star of their attack, which he will also like, but the door has not been closed another year at Old Trafford.

He’s the only forward who can bring some physicality to the strike force, so he should be substituted if he leaves, but it’s likely that a decision won’t be made until the end of the season.
