Edinson Cavani already plotting next move after Man Utd despite just joining

Manchester United new boy Edinson Cavani has suggested he wants to end his career at Boca Juniors – despite only joining the Red Devils on Monday.

Cavani, 33, completed a free transfer to United on deadline day after leaving Paris St-Germain upon the expiry of his contract in July.

He was linked with a number of clubs before moving to Old Trafford, including Atletico Madrid, Benfica and Argentinian giants Boca.

And the Uruguay striker has revealed he held talks with Boca vice president Juan Roman Riquelme, hinting that he could sign for them in the future.

“Roman wrote to me with great respect, he wanted to know how I was in this situation, with a very particular salary and we had a very respectful talk,” Cavani told ESPN.

“Boca is a giant of the world, any footballer would like to play there. There have been several Uruguayans that have played there. Following the history of our football arouses curiosity a bit.

“There are some secrets from the conversation with Roman, you have to ask him if he wants to tell them.

“We will see what happens in the future. It would be very nice to be able to play at Boca one day.”

Cavani has joined a United side in disarray, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men suffering a humiliating 6-1 defeat against Tottenham on Sunday.

The Premier League club have lost two of their first three matches this season, also slumping to a 3-1 defeat against Crystal Palace in their opening fixture.

“I have a two-year contract with Manchester United. I want to do my best here. I feel good,” he continued.

“The day I return to South America is not going to be when I have nothing left to give.

“I am realistic, I want to play until I feel good. I will play these two years and see if I continue or go back to South America.”
