Cavani ‘proud’ to wear Man Utd shirt after father’s talk of exit

After his father said the Uruguay striker was struggling in England and decided to end his career in South America, Edinson Cavani said he was proud to wear the Manchester United jersey.

Luis Cavani, 34, told Argentina’s media on Tuesday that he was contemplating a move to Boca Juniors later this year.

Luis Cavani told Argentine television channel TyC Sports, “(Edinson) today may not feel relaxed where he is.” “He has been considering moving closer to his family for more than two years.”

Luis Cavani said his son was still disappointed with the way English football officials treated him after he was suspended earlier this season for using a racial slur in a social media post.

After an Instagram conversation in which he greeted a friend, Pablo Fernandez, with the widely used Spanish word “negrito,” the striker was suspended for three games (small black person).

Despite the fact that a disciplinary tribunal determined Cavani did not plan to hurt anybody with his comment, he was nonetheless fined, sparking a media uproar in Uruguay.

“It’s nonsense that he was suspended for three games,” Luis Cavani said. “That term is still used here. We don’t believe in bigotry. Part of it is influencing his choice.”

Edinson Cavani, on the other hand, later shared a picture of himself on Instagram with the caption “Proud to wear this shirt @manchesterunited.”

The forward’s future has sparked speculation after United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said last month that he will try to convince him to stay at Old Trafford.

Since joining on a free transfer from Paris Saint-Germain in October, Cavani has made an impact on and off the field, scoring seven goals in 25 appearances.

The Uruguayan joined United on a one-year contract with the option to extend it.

The Uruguayan signed a one-season deal with United with the option to extend by a further year.

However, Cavani’s father said his son had long dreamed of playing for Boca Juniors. “Imagine him celebrating a goal with the fans,” Luis Cavani said.

“We know what Boca and Argentine football is. There is a 60 percent chance Edinson will come to South America.”
