Cavani Set To Become Teammate With Chukwueze At Villarreal

Former Manchester United striker Edinson Cavani could become teammate of Super Eagles forward Samuel Chukwueze as he is in talks to join LaLiga side Villarreal, according to Daily Mail.

Cavani ended his two-year stay at Old Trafford last month when his contract expired, and he is now looking for a new club.


The 35-year-old has previously featured fo United, PSG and Napoli, but he is yet to try his luck in Spain.

However, that could be about to change as he has been in contact with Villarreal.


The Yellow Submarines made the semi-finals of last season’s Champions League and finished seventh in Spain’s top-flight last term under manager Unai Emery.

The Uruguayan had a miserable final season at United, featuring in just 15 league matches, and scoring only twice.

He found himself behind Cristiano Ronaldo in the pecking order, while his fitness was also a major concern in the second half of the campaign.

He remains a classy operator, though, having scored 200 goals in his seven years at PSG, while he also netted over 100 goals for Napoli.

With the World Cup just four months away, Cavani will want to be playing regularly in the build-up to what could be his final major tournament for his country.

The forward may feel that he can get consistent game time at Villarreal, and he would not be the first experienced former Premier League player to join the club if he completes his move.

Villarreal recently signed ex-Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina after he was released by Lazio, and they could be set to take advantage of the free agent market once again by landing Cavani.
