In what could be bad news for Manchester United, Juventus is apparently back in the market for Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani should Carlos Tevez leave the Italian champions this summer according to the club’s former general manager Luciano Moggi.
The Argentinian is being linked with a move to play under fellow countryman Diego Simeone, while at the same time his hometown team of Boca Juniors has asked him to wait until after the Copa America before making a decision.
Moggi thinks that should Tevez leave then Cavani would be brought in as his replacement telling Sportitalia: “If he (Tevez) leaves, Cavani will arrive. If not, the Juve attack will not change. I think that the Matador (Cavani) can replace the Argentinian perfectly.”
Here at Soccer Transfers we still remain convinced that Cavani’s future lies at Old Trafford with Manchester United being one of the few clubs out there that would be willing to pay his £300,000 per-week salary demands, which we feel the Italians will not pay so United fans don’t give up hope yet of getting Cavani to Manchester.
