If the veteran striker wishes to return to South America, the Brazilian club is eager to make it happen
Brazilian group Gremio went public with a desire to sign veteran striker Edinson Cavani, who is currently a free agent.
The 33-year-old left Paris Saint-Germain when his contract expired in June, missing the Ligue 1 champions’ run to the Champions League final.
Cavani has established himself as one of the leading poachers in Europe after moving to Palermo in 2007 from Danubio, and Gremio President Romildo Bolzan Junio is now ready to launch an ambitious attempt to bring him back to South America, although he admits that the decision will be made. out of his hands if the seasoned killer wants to stay in the spotlight.
“He [Cavani’s agent] did not make a proposal. But in life, if you don’t talk, you don’t know anything, “he said Consular time.
“Suddenly, there is chemistry, something different, empathy, a desire, and then suddenly it happens.
“Rationally, if it were under normal circumstances, we wouldn’t have the slightest hope of signing this player.
“If he wants to play in Europe, he will have offers a thousand times greater than what a South American or Brazilian team can give him.
“Now, if it’s in his head, if it’s his idea or if it’s his desire to participate in a project closer to home, closer to his activities and to Uruguay, I believe he can sit with us.
“I expect you to have this feeling and to talk to us a little more.”
Cavani has been linked with several clubs in Europe since his contract with PSG expired. He was reportedly on the verge of joining Benfica twice before the deal broke due to his salary demands, while also being associated with the new Premier League boys, Leeds United.
Also, it was suggested that he could go to Spain, with Atletico Madrid interested and Barcelona needing a number nine.
He has previously played in Italy and France, scoring 104 goals in 138 games in three years at Napoli before continuing with a very successful spell at PSG.
At the Parc des Princes, he scored exactly 200 goals to overtake Zlatan Ibrahimovic as the club’s best shooter. The highlight of his time at PSG was the 2016-17 season, when he scored 49 goals in 50 games, a tally that ranks as the best he has managed in his career to date.
