Di Marzio: Edinson Cavani agrees to Atlético deal

A major update on a longtime transfer target.

UEFA Champions League”Paris St Germain v Galatasaray AS”

Paris Saint-Germain forward Edinson Cavani has struck an agreement on a three-year contract with Atlético Madrid, according to Sky Italy’s Gianluca Di Marzio.

Former Atlético target Mauro Icardi’s arrival pushed Cavani out of PSG’s plans after years of productivity. Cavani had been considered Miami-bound as the face of David Beckham’s new Major League Soccer side Inter Miami, but it appears Atleti have won the race to keep the 32-year-old in Europe.

Di Marzio explains Cavani’s decision to leave is set his stone and Atlético are trying to incorporate him in January. PSG have yet to sanction the Uruguayan’s departure in the winter transfer window, but the Ligue 1 champions would risk losing their all-time leading goalscorer for nothing when his contract expires in June. As such, the sides could work out a cut-rate deal as a solution. Atleti would also have to sell a player in order to complete a deal next month, as the club has reached LaLiga’s revenue-based salary cap.

Di Marzio’s report ends with a note about Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matić, who is out of favor at the English club and is also wanted by Atlético.


Would Edinson Cavani be a good signing?
