Cavani in Portugal? Benfica is interested in the Uruguayan player
Edinson Cavani is a free agent and can be added for free. The South American wants to test himself in the new championship.
Edinson Cavani’s contract with Paris Saint-Germain expired on June 30, and he left the team as a free agent. From January onwards, one often hears the probable variants of where the Uruguayan will move.
According to Marca, Edinson’s brother Fernando, who is also his agent, is in Portugal and is negotiating with Benfica. The Portuguese club has a great desire to add a 33-year-old player.
Despite the high interest, it will be difficult for Benfica to agree with the forward. The fact is that the Uruguayan is asking for a big salary, while the Portuguese club can not pay a high salary and tries to get the player to agree to a relatively low wage.
According to reports, Cavani has returned to his homeland and is waiting for new offers. The South American realizes that his career is coming to an end and is trying to test himself in a new championship.
In addition to Benfica, Cavani’s name is actively associated with Premier League and La Liga teams. It has recently been reported that Leeds, who have just returned to the English Premier League, also wanted to add Edinson.
Edinson Cavani made 14 appearances in the 2019/20 Ligue 1 season, scoring four goals and assisting two. The Uruguayan played three matches in the Champions League, where he managed to score only one goal.
