The arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo at Manchester United could allow FC Barcelona to recover Edinson Cavani this winter.
After having tormented the FC Barcelona, when he was the star striker for Real Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo could do a little service to the Catalan club. By returning to Manchester United, the Portuguese international clearly complicated the personal situation ofEdinson Cavani, whose role has been considerably reduced.
At the end of the summer transfer window, rumors had sent “El Matador” to Barça, when the Blaugranas were looking for an additional center-forward (they opted for Luuk de Jong). Often injured since the start of the season, Cavani currently only has seven small appearances with Man Utd this season, for two starts. It’s pretty thin, and it was predictable: since his return to Old Trafford, Ronaldo has played exclusively a center-forward, and there are a lot of people on the wings in the Red Devils squad.
Results, Cavani would have decided to look elsewhere. The English press first sent the former Parisian to Barça for next season, at the end of his current contract with MU. But Sport, this Tuesday, indicates that Barça will try to recover it this winter. The Blaugranas need new blood in attack, an area where they have lost Sergio Agüero (heart problems).
Ferran Torres (Man City) was targeted, but Cavani would have the advantage of costing much less than the young Spain international. However, the Mancunian leaders will have to agree to give up their player in the middle of the season.
