Manchester United striker Edinson Cavani could reportedly pocket a whopping £1.75m if the Red Devils fail to renew his contract beyond the end of the season.
Cavani, 34, joined United on the final day of last summer’s transfer window on a free transfer after his contract with PSG expired earlier in the year, as per ManUtd.
Despite initial concerns over whether or not the South American would be able to cope with the notoriously tough Premier League, Cavani has enjoyed a decent start to life in England’s top-flight.
Although currently ruled out through injury, the 34-year-old has netted six times in his first 17 league appearances.
Despite emerging as a current fan favourite, Cavani’s time at Old Trafford could already be coming to an end.
Although the Uruguayan striker signed a one-year deal whilst the club retained the option to extend it by another year, both parties have so far failed to open negotiations.
According to a recent report from The Times, should the Red Devils’ hierarchy fail to extend the 34-year-old’s deal, they will be forced to pay him £1.75m.
Should Cavani stay another year or will the end of the season be the right time to go? – Let us know what you think in the comments.
