“Joining Madrid is probably one of the best ways to end a professional footballer’s career”
1NEWS – Edinson Cavani has been one of the players in the spotlight recently with rumors suggesting that Real Madrid want to sign the Uruguayan striker next winter.
It is clear the arrival of the former Napoli player will be additional ammunition for Carlo Ancelotti’s attack line and the 34-year-old player does not deny that Los Blancos want to get his services.
Real Madrid 'want to sign' Edinson Cavani, according to El Nacional.
This campaign is expected to be the 34-year-old’s last at the club, which means he’s set to leave a free agent.

“The season just started recently, I can’t speak (Cavani talks about Madrid’s interest in him),” the Uruguayan told ESPN.
“They are talking and will continue to talk, and the press is like that too, they are talking and have to sell.”
As for the Spanish daily newspaper Diario AS confirmed that the possibility of “Cavani going to Real Madrid is very possible, with very dynamic football.”
Currently, the former PSG player has a valid contract with Manchester United until the summer of 2022. However, the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo has shifted Cavani’s position, even the number 7 he wore last season now belongs to the Portugal national team captain.

“They are things that happen. There are a lot of debates, but football is football and you don’t have to go overboard with it, not because there is one, the important thing is to be ready when it’s your turn you always want to play, you want to be there forever. , but it won’t change the way I think or act,” Cavani explained.
This season he has only participated in 3 of 7 Premier League games, totaling just 104 minutes of playing time. If Los Blancos’ interest is still the same, it is possible that Cavani will end his playing career with the Spanish capital team, especially at the age of 34 years.
