OGC Nice remains in ambush to hope to recover Edinson Cavani in August. It would be a major blow.
Edinson Cavani has been free as the air since July 1. Not renewed on the Manchester United side, the Uruguayan striker is still looking for a new challenge. His name has recently returned regularly to the side of Boca Juniors and Villarreal, but for now, the player has not formalized anything. As the championships resume one after the other, now OGC Nice is once again interested in the case.
The top scorer in the history of Paris Saint-Germain (200 goals) has a profile likely to interest Lucien Favre. Asked about a possible arrival of Cavani, but also of Marseille Bamba Dieng, the Swiss tactician did not close any doors. « I find them interesting, but it is very difficult to make transfers »he said in comments relayed by The Team. Difficult, but « not impossible« specifies the sports daily.
The situation has changed
The interest of Eaglets for the « Matador » is not new since as early as July, they had come to the information. At the time, the file seemed too complicated given Edinson Cavani’s hopes of finding a top-flight team. A month later, the deal could have changed in favor of OGC Nice.
