- Diego Simeone’s side are working to bring in the PSG forward in January
- Edinson Cavani will be a free agent in the summer after his contract expires
- Atletico Madrid will have to sell a number of players in order to fund the deal
Edinson Cavani has agreed to move to Atletico Madrid on a three-year deal as reported by Sky Sports Italia.
The Uruguay international will be a free agent in the summer when his contract expires. With Neymar, Mbappe, Di Maria and Icardi in starting eleven
Atletico will have to manage to fund the deal by selling number of players. The Madrid side is believed to have too many players in the squad already and will have to cut down on budget to afford Cavani wages.
Diego Simeone’s side are working to bring in the PSG forward in January but they can agree a pre-contract for him to join in the summer for free anyway. There is still no agreement with PSG to complete the deal in January as Atletico look to solve their striker crisis.
Diego Costa is currently injured and summer signing Joao Felix has not been living up to the heights expected. Alvaro Morata has had to carry the load.
Cavani is believed to be excited about joining up with Simeone who has been courting him for years.
