Edinson Cavani is about to move to Valencia
Valencia of La Liga is expected to sign Edinson Cavani, according to Fabrizio Romano, a transfer expert.
The Uruguayan’s contract with Manchester United expired in June, making him once more a free agent.
He has always wanted to play in La Liga, and los Ché are about to make that dream come true.
Although Real Sociedad has also been interested in the forward, it appears that the east coast club has edged out the Basques in the race.
In order to finalize the deal and address any outstanding issues, Valencia will speak with Edinson Cavani’s camp directly once more on Monday, according to Romano.
“Club is certain to carry out the agreement.
While Valencia is close to selling Maxi Gomez to Fenerbahçe, Cavani is negotiating a two-year contract.
Cavani will sign for two fixed seasons (until June 30, 2024), according to Superdeporte.es, with a salary above two million euros net.
“Everyone involved in the negotiation is upbeat, and the operation might be finished soon. The final agreement will be reached in a matter of hours because the last economic issues are well advanced.
“Gennaro Gattuso is standing by with arms wide open. The manager put a lot of effort into bringing in the Uruguayan and is confident that the plan will succeed.
Cavani scored 19 goals and contributed 7 assists in 59 games for United.
In his first season, he won over the fans, but a second season marred by injury, during which he was rumored to be unhappy at the club, prevented him from reaching the heights he might have at Old Trafford.
