Man Untd striker agrees ‘taking huge pay cut’ to join new club

Manchester United striker Edinson Cavani is willing to take a huge pay cut to join Boca Juniors according to the latest rumour.

The former PSG striker made up his mind to leave Old Trafford when his contract expires at the end of the campaign.

His father Luis revealed to Argentinian broadcaster TYC Sports last month Cavani is unsettled at Old Trafford and “leaning towards” Boca with a “60 percent” chance he will return to South America.

However, Man United are unwilling to lose the Uruguay international and Ole-Gunnar Solskjaer has spoken severally about extending the striker’ deal.

The legendary striker joined United on a one-year deal last October and has made a big impact despite struggling for game time.

He has scored seven goals from 26 appearances in all competitions – including six Premier League strikes – but only 13 of those matches have been in the starting XI.

Injuries have restricted Cavani to just one run-out since mid-February but he is expected to play a big part in the final weeks of the campaign.
