Manchester United striker Edinson Cavani will leave the club this summer and is dreaming of a move to La Liga.
This is according to Fabrizio Romano who was speaking on the latest Que Golazo YouTube video to discuss the summer window ahead of the Red Devils.
Is a striker United's biggest need in the summer?
And it has been reported La Liga giants Barcelona have shown some interest in the 35-year-old who has been out-of-favour at Old Trafford this season.
Cavani netted 10 times in the Premier League last season, however, Romano believes he will definitely leave this summer in favour of seeking first-team action:
(8:30) “From what I’m told, he’s leaving Man United, no doubt. So he wants to try something new. He had two good seasons in England but he wants to try something new and Man United will go for a young striker, so it’s time for a change at United and this is why he’s going to leave on a free.
“He dreams of La Liga, so I can’t mention any club at the moment because it’s just Cavani’s intentions. Cavani plans to try La Liga experience in the coming months.”
TIF Thoughts on Romano’s comments…
Cavani will likely be frustrated by this season has gone so far given he did commit this season to the Red Devils having been out of contract at the end of last season.
Injury issues have been the story of his 2021/22 campaign with just 12 appearances in the Premier League to his name which has seen him score twice.
But with both Cristiano Ronaldo and Cavani both closing in on their 40th birthdays, is it time for United to find a long-term solution for their striker needs?
