Edinson Cavani is a free agent, and he is looking for a new team. The Uruguayan forward did not want to move to Juventus. So, Cavani refused to Juve’s offer.
The Uruguayan striker Edinson Cavani is a free agent looking for a new club. The 33-year-old forward could have returned to Italy and moved to Turin’s Juventus. But he refused.
According to Sky Italia, Juve were ready to add the Uruguayan player as a free agent and to satisfy the player’s desire on a personal contract. Cavani did not accept the offer, and the reason for this is Napoli’s love. “Matador” refused to go to the Turin camp because of Napoli’s loyalty.
Edinson played for Napoli from 2010-2013 and scored 104 goals in 138 appearances. His contract with Paris Saint-Germain expired on June 30. So, he left the team (301 games and 200 goals) and is a free agent. The former PSG forward was very close to moving to Lisbon Benfica. But at the last minute, the agreement failed. The reason is that the Uruguayan demands a very high salary.
As for Juventus: Gonzalo Higuain has decided to leave the team, and Andrea Pirlo is looking for a replacement. Cavani was also one of the options. But now the Turinese will have to make another choice. According to Italian media, the main candidates are Edin Dzeko, Raul Jimenez, Arkadiusz Milik, and Luis Suarez.
