Veteran striker Edinson Cavani has been in Europe since leaving Uruguayan side Danubio for Italian outfit Palermo in 2007.

The Uruguayan striker would eventually seal a move to Napoli in the 2010-11 season, where he established himself as one of Europe’s top marksmen. He then went on to French giants Paris Saint-Germain and maintained his excellent record, scoring 200 goals in 301 appearances.

With 6 goals in 9 Premier League starts, Cavani has shown that he’s still a top player, even at age 34. However, his long-term future isn’t at Old Trafford.

It was believed that Cavani will spend at least an extra year with Manchester United, but the veteran striker may reject an extension to stay another year at the club, and move to Boca Juniors, an Argentine club that he has loved from childhood.

Cavani will reportedly take a pay cut to join the Argentine giants and will sign a three-year contract. Cavani is believed to have spoken with Boca president Juan Roman Riquelme in the past in order to seal a move.
