Once Edinson Cavani’s contract expires after the 2019-20 season ends, the 33-year-old will be a hot commodity.
Earlier this week, the sporting director of Boca Juniors made it clear that he expects the Uruguayan to sign with the Argentine club, going as far as to say that it will “hopefully happen very soon.” However, it’s looking as though Boca won’t be the lone South American club in the running for the services of Paris Saint-Germain’s all-time leading scorer.
Cavani’s half-brother and agent, Walter Guglielmone, recently spoke with Calcio Napoli 1926 (via Culture PSG), where he first mentioned that there’s no contract on the table from Cavani’s former club, Napoli.
Recently, Tuttosport had reported that there was a three-year deal with a salary of €7 million per season offer on the table from the Italian club, but Guglielmone made it clear that there’s no such offer.
Then, Guglielmone went on to say that along with Boca, there are three Brazilian clubs interested in signing the 33-year-old. According to El Matador‘s agent, it’s Clube de Regatas do Flamengo, Sociedade Esportiva Palmeiras, and Sport Club Internacional that are joining Boca in the race for Cavani.

All four clubs are prominent in South American football, with Flamengo being the reigning Copa Libertadores winners. Also, having fellow Urugyuan international Giorgian De Arrascaeta to do some recruiting could put the Brazilian club in the driver’s seat if Cavani wants to head back to his home continent.
If there are no serious offers from top European clubs, then El Matador will have his pick of the litter when it comes to top clubs in South America.
