Report: Juventus Not Willing to Meet Cavani’s High Wage Demands

The theme of Edinson Cavani’s search for a new team continues to revolve around his refusal to lower his high wage demands. Now, a new team has joined numerous others in halting contract talks with Cavani over its refusal to meet the Uruguayan’s salary requirements.

Juventus does not prefer to meet Cavani’s demands of a €12 million net salary per year contract, according to a report from the Italian-based outlet La Gazzetta dello Sport. The Italian side is in need of a striker but is not desperate to the point where the club would opt to make Cavani one of its highest-paid players. Juventus is willing to offer the talent a €6.5 million per year contract, but Cavani is not interested in such a deal. The two sides are clearly far apart on a new deal as talks have reached a standstill.

The reigning Serie A winners are now currently in talks with FC Barcelona striker Luis Suarez over a potential transfer deal. Per the report, Juventus could soon come to terms with Suarez for a two-year deal on the same €6.5 million yearly salary contract that the club offered Cavani. Suarez’s deal would also include incentives that could raise his yearly salary up to €10 million. The two sides are deemed to be close to agreeing to a contract deal.

Unless Cavani lowers his high wage demands, his wait for a new club will carry on over the current transfer window.
