Edinson Cavani linked with surprise move to Roma

Edinson Cavani has received a lucrative offer to return to Italy with Roma, Uruguyan journalist Gonzalo Ronchi reports.

However, Roma fan portal RomaPress claims to have received a denial from the club of any offer being made.

33-year-old Cavani will officially become a free agent when his PSG contract expires on June 30.

Unlike Thiago Silva, Cavani will not be signing a short-term extension to play in the Champions League for PSG.

He has been strongly linked with Inter, but his high wage demands have stalled their pursuit.

Cavani’s €10m-per-season salary is also why a move to Roma doesn’t seem realistic.

Roma’s top earner Edin Dzeko takes in around half of that before bonuses (€5m + €1m).

It was recently claimed that Cavani would favour a move to Spain with Atletico Madrid, who almost signed ‘El Matador’ in January.

But they are considering their options and have held talks with Arkadiusz Milik of Cavani’s former club Napoli.
