At the end of his contract with Manchester United, 35-year-old Edinson Cavani recalled that his sense of purpose was still intact by scoring a double in Uruguay’s 3-0 win over Mexico in a friendly on Thursday.
Uruguay outscored Mexico (3-0) in a friendly in preparation for the 2022 World Cup on Thursday in Glendale, Arizona (southwestern United States). Matias Vecino opened the scoring (35th) beforeEdinson Cavani (35 years old) did not weigh him down at the beginning of the second period (46th, 54th). The Celeste captain recalled that his sense of purpose was intact as he looked for a new club as he arrived at the end of his contract with Manchester United.
His departure from the Red Devils has not yet been made official, but doubt is not really allowed on this issue, as evidenced by a recent message from the player on the club’s networks. “I can only express my gratitude to the fans and supporters of Manchester United,” he said. “Honestly, they showed me a lot of respect from the first moment I arrived. I think they have greatly acknowledged all the hard work I have always tried to provide in the best way possible, giving the best of myself to this team.I am really very grateful and will leave here with a happy memory of this affection that they have shown me and that they have always shown. “
“El Matador”, the top scorer in PSG history, has played very little this season with Manchester United (20 games, 2 goals) due to many injuries. He resumed competition in early May and proves with the selection that he has recovered well from his successive glitches in the tendon, groin and calf. The player would prefer an adventure in Spain. According to El Chiringuito, three clubs have expressed interest in Cavani: Atlético de Madrid, Villarreal (where he will meet Unai Emery) and FC Sevilla.
If he is also interested in Boca Junios and River Plate, Cavani wants to continue in Europe with the next World Cup in mind. Uruguay is in Group H with Portugal, Ghana and South Korea. The Tri is in Pool C, along with Argentina, Saudi Arabia and Poland. The two Latin American teams will continue their preparations on Sunday in the United States, where Uruguay coached by Diego Alonso will face the United States, and Gerardo “Tata” Martino’s Mexico will face Ecuador.
