After Cristiano Ronaldo’s transfer, Manchester United’s Edinson Cavani was reportedly “offered” to Barcelona.
Edinson Cavani, a striker for Manchester United, could depart following Cristiano Ronaldo’s return to Old Trafford.
According to rumours in Spain, Manchester United’s Edinson Cavani has been offered to Barcelona. The Uruguayan joined the club on a free transfer from Paris Saint-Germain. Following Cristiano Ronaldo’s sensational comeback to Old Trafford, it now appears that he will struggle to find consistent playing time.
Cavani was recruited by Manchester United last year after the club missed out on Jadon Sancho, who has now joined from Borussia Dortmund.
And the Uruguayan international didn’t let anyone down, scoring 17 goals in all competitions.
United, on the other hand, has re-signed Ronaldo. “Manchester United is thrilled to confirm the signing of Cristiano Ronaldo on a two-year contract with the option to extend for a further year, subject to international clearance,” they said this morning.
Cristiano Ronaldo, a five-time Ballon d’Or winner, has won more than 30 major trophies in his career, including five UEFA Champions League crowns, four FIFA Club World Cups, seven league wins in England, Spain, and Italy, and the UEFA European Championship for his native Portugal.
“Cristiano Ronaldo is the first player to win leagues in three different nations; he was also the top goal scorer in Serie A last season and earned the Golden Boot in the European Championship this year.

“He scored 118 goals in 292 appearances during his first tenure with Manchester United.”
Cavani has now been ‘offered to Barcelona,’ according to Mundo Deportivo.
After losing Lionel Messi this year and Luis Suarez the previous summer, the Catalan giants are looking for a striker on deadline day.
Following Ronaldo’s emotional comeback, Cavani is said to value a move away from United.
However, due to the player’s salary, the publication admits that any transaction will be “tough” and “complex.”
