Edinson Cavani is set to join Argentine club Boca Juniors

The 35-year-old Uruguayan striker Edinson Cavani is reportedly set to join popular Argentine club Boca Juniors.

Cavani is currently a free agent player after ending his contract with the English Premier League club Manchester United last June. While the Uruguayan was Man United’s third most goal-scorer in the 2020/21 season with 17 goals in 39 games, his fitness issues denied a smooth run the last season (2021/22) as he made only eight starts along with 12 more substitute appearances and scored only two goals.

Edinson Cavani to Boca Juniors

One of the greatest Uruguayan footballers Cavani is now reportedly ready to sign for Boca Juniors. It is going to be one of the biggest ever signings in Argentine football history. The 35-year-old is likely to sign an 18-month deal with the club.

Previously, Cavani named Boca Juniors as his favourite Argentine club. So, there is not much big shocker that the Uruguayan is moving to the popular Argentine club.  

The free agent Cavani has several offers from European clubs. The Spanish La Liga side Villarreal was also very excited about signing him for the new season. However, the experienced Cavani is now showing more interest in South American football than popular European football.
