This time, doubt is no longer allowed. If some people still hoped to see Edinson Cavani sign an contract with Inter Miami CF, it is a failure. Free of any contract next June, El Matador will not move to Miami. In Spain, they are even sure of the future destination of the top scorer in the history of the capital’s club: Atlético de Madrid. Sky Italia said yesterday that everything had been tied up for the player’s arrival next summer.
But if a future for the Colchoneros is described as the most likely scenario, the timing of the operation still raises some doubts. In its edition of the day, The Team confirms an information from Marca released last week that Cavani would not say no to a start in January. A wish that remains dependent for the moment on winter sales of the Atlético, but also on the green light from Leonardo.
And even if Cavani does not leave this winter, the sports daily specifies that the Atlético may have to fight more than expected. The reason ? Chelsea and Manchester United are also said to be very interested in getting the player back for free next summer. Two interests that do not really surprise. At MU, Cavani would add to an offensive sector made up primarily of Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford if the Red Devils manage to get their Champions League ticket.
As for Chelsea, the need to hire an attacker is dire. Currently, the holder in front is the young Tammy Abraham. But his two liners, Michy Batshuayi and Olivier Giroud are already trying to pack up this winter. And if they do not succeed, that is to say that the two players will do it again next summer (Giroud will be free of any contract). The Cavani track would then thicken, even if other records exist. It remains to be seen whether El Matador will be sensitive to a first experience in the Premier League.
Much bigger clubs and challenges are being offered to Cavani right now. No wonder that the ones spreading the rumors of his agreeing with Miami are the same that made you believe that Gallardo would be the coach of the Florida franchise.
