Man United attacker on verge of summer move to La Liga

Manchester United appear to be in for a summer of change, as striker Edinson Cavani appears to be on his way out.
According to a recent story in The Sun, the South American veteran is coveted by La Liga club Real Sociedad.

Despite a fantastic debut season in which he scored 17 goals in 39 games, Cavani, 35, has been relegated to the sidelines this season.

Cavani’s playing time has been severely curtailed as a result of being forced to play second fiddle to star man Cristiano Ronaldo, as seen by the fact that he started only six Premier League matches all season.

With the 35-year-contract old’s at Old Trafford set to expire at the end of the current season, the experienced forward is almost certain to leave this summer.

Although other clubs, including Serie A champions Inter Milan and Argentine side River Plate, are considered to be interested, Spain is supposed to be the number 21’s favorite destination.

As a result, Imanol Alguacil’s side is now leading the push to sign Cavani on a free transfer.

The striker’s likely departure will open up space in the Red Devils’ roster and, based on interim manager Ralf Rangnick’s recent statements, might pave the way for a younger attacker to enter the picture.

Rangnick, as quoted by ESPN, said earlier this year to reporters about the club’s summer plans: “This is evident.”

“Edison’s contract expires in the summer, and the team requires the finest possible center forward.” This is a no-brainer. “I believe everyone is aware of this.”

Cavani has appeared in 56 matches in all competitions since arriving in Manchester nearly two years ago, personally contributing to 19 goals along the road, and will likely be regarded as a cult-favorite among the United faithful.
