Edinson Cavani admits that his move to Manchester United is a dream come true, as he had previously attempted a transfer.
United signed the 34-year-old on the final day of the summer transfer window following his release from Paris Saint-Germain.
However, the Uruguayan striker has revealed that the Red Devils had attempted his transfer many years ago.
“At that time, when I was free, many things were said. “My brother, as my representative, out of respect for the clubs, he never closed any door because he had an interest to go”, Cavani initially said ESPN Brazil.
“It opened up and made it possible for a lot of people to start giving their opinion and say ‘Cavani is going here or there.’
“It was a time when there was a lot of talk and there was a lot of going back and forth, something more inward with my brother.”
“We decided to come to Manchester, it was something we had already talked about, it had this interest, not today, but from a distant time, five years ago.”
“There was interest and we decided: ‘No, let’s go to this great club,'” the Uruguayan striker concluded. / Telegraphy /
