Edinson Cavani’s proposed move to Benfica is back on track after it appeared he rejected an offer made by the Portuguese giants. A Bola reports that Benfica have met with Cavani and his agent last week, offering him a stunning two-year contract worth around €9m-per-season. Cavani could complete his move to Benfica next week.
The Urugayan striker left Paris Saint-Germain last month on a free transfer after his contract had expired. The French giants wanted Cavani to sign a short-term deal to finish the season and play for the club in the Champions League in August but Cavani decided to take his chances as a free agent instead.
Since leaving PSG Cavani has been linked with several clubs, including Atletico Madrid, Juventus and Leeds United. However, it now seems that Benfica are close to signing a deal with Cavani despite earlier reports that the veteran striker rejected an offer from the Portuguese club. A new offer from them has changed Cavani’s thoughts about joining the Liga Nos side.
