When Cristiano Ronaldo was announced at Manchester United, everyone immediately looked at a particular footballer who will be the main victim of the return of the Portuguese: Edinson Cavani. The Uruguayan, who renewed his contract shortly after, wore the 7 on his back, the iconic number that CR7 has worn for almost his entire career and the worst fears were soon fulfilled. That number was taken from Cavani to “give it back” to Cristiano.
But not only in the medical issue Cavani suffered Cristiano. More serious is the sporting thing, since it was overshadowed by the presence of CR7 and since this debut it was seen little and nothing.
For this reason, the rumors of departure immediately began. There was even talk of a last minute signing for Bara, in the last hours of closing of the transfer market. This did not materialize but now, according to Daily Mail, Cavani is still upset by how It is being treated and an exit to Barcelona took shape again. “Cavani is frustrated with his secondary role at Old Trafford, which is why he does not rule out changing the air,” says the English medium.
The same media emphasizes that, however, for Cavani to end up at Barcelona, United will have to get part of his salary, of about 15 million per season. The news of the Bara crisis is abundant and does not need much more explanation. Since joining the Red Devils, Cavani has scored 17 goals and provided 5 assists in 41 games, all in the 2020-21 season. Now converted to 9, he only played 2 games and did not score goals.
