Playing for a club the size of Manchester United is a huge honour, or at least it once was. Edinson Cavani, despite going on a good run of form for the club, decided recently where he wants to spend next season, and it’s not in the footballing capital of England.

According to a report from Ole, Cavani wants to spend next season in Argentina, playing for the Primera Division giants Boca Juniors.

I guess it’s fair enough. After all, Cavani is nearing the end of his career so he won’t want to remain stagnant and he would like to be guaranteed time on the pitch at this stage of his career. Not feeling like he’s holding back a progressive club.

Cavani will not go down as a flop at United. Far from it. He’s come in and continued his good legacy in the Premier League, something that people make out is a hard thing to do. He has proven that he’s an exceptional striker, in case anyone doubted him, with a great eye for space.

Still, he won’t exactly be missed either. He oftentimes has found himself playing second fiddle to Marcus Rashford, which of course he will understand. Rashford has also learned a lot from Cavani about how to find and exploit space, improvements which have clearly been shown in his game.

Of course, United will need to replace Cavani. However, if they’re happy for him to go, then I can only assume they have potential reinforcements lined up already. After all, they have shown interest in the likes of Erling Haaland, so they’re not exactly short of world class options.

So, all in all, it’s not amazing news. However, it’s not the kind of news that United should be beating themselves up over, either.
