Manchester United striker Edinson Cavani has made it clear that it would be great for him to play for Boca Juniors before retiring from football as he stressed that he is not in rush.
The Uruguayan footballer recently joined the Red Devils after leaving Paris-Saint-Germain where he spent eight years of his career before he left.
Before joining Manchester United, Edinson Cavani was linked with a move to Atletico Madrid and Benfica, but the 33-year-old decided to have the feelings of the Premier League.
Cavani explained that he held talks with Boca Juniors' vice-president Juan Roman Riquelme, whom he discussed a potential transfer with before moving to Old Trafford.
Cavani explained below to ESPN .
"Roman wrote to me with great respect, he wanted to know how I was in this situation, with a very particular semester and we had a very respectful talk.
"Boca is a giant of the world any footballer would come across playing there. There were several Uruguayan players out there. Following the history of our football arouses curiosity a bit."
Meanwhile, former Manchester United striker Carlos Tevez is currently leading the attack at Boca Junior.
Cavani started his career at Danubio youth team in 2000 before moving to the main team five years later and spent two years scoring nine goals.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Edinson Cavani revealed that he nearly quit football after he and his girlfriend battled the deadly coronavirus.
