That, most likely, is because Cavani has long dreamed of returning to South America with links to Boca Juniors and Corinthians both arising.
Back in May, when his Old Trafford contract was winding down, the former Napoli and Paris Saint-Germain star was preparing himself to move.
But he ended up staying after a stirring end to the season, scoring in the Europa League final defeat to Villarreal.
Boca legend Dario Felman said earlier in the year that Cavani should leave United for the ‘best club in the world’.
“If Cavani’s dream is to play for ‘Boca Juniors‘ he should go for it because ‘Boca’ is the best club in the world, as far as I’m concerned and on every level,” Felman told Tribal Football.
