Atletico Madrid hold fresh talks with Edinson Cavani

With the new season fast approaching, Edinson Cavani remains a free agent following aborted talks with several clubs.

After talks with Inter went nowhere, the Uruguayan striker came very close to joining Benfica, but negotiations broke down.

In recent days, Juventus have shown interest in Cavani but his compatriot Luis Suarez seems a more likely signing.

However, an old flame has returned for 33-year-old Cavani in recent hours.

According to Gianluca Di Marzio, Cavani’s brother and agent met with officials from Atletico Madrid on Saturday.

Atletico almost signed Cavani in January only for the deal to fall through.

Diego Simeone is looking for more firepower after Alvaro Morata and Diego Costa scored just 17 La Liga goals between them last season.

And Cavani is a feasible option with Di Marzio reporting that Atletico ‘pushing for him’.

Cavani left Paris Saint-Germain at the end of the season after 200 goals in 301 appearances.
