Manchester United striker Edinson Cavani could complete a move to Boca Juniors this summer but only on one condition.
The Uruguay forward moved to Old Trafford on a free transfer last summer, penning a one-year contract with the option of a further year.
However, injuries and a suspension have limited his number of appearances for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men.
When he has been available, the 34-year-old has often been first choice for the Red Devils.
With that in mind, United have had talks about the forward extending his stay for another 12 months.
However, Cavani seemingly has his heart set on a return to South America, rather than remaining in England.
But according to DirecTV, as cited by Inside Futbol, Cavani would need to lower his salary demands to seal a move.
The report states that Boca cannot afford Cavani’s current wage and are counting on the player to compromise.
The former PSG is keen on finishing his career in Soutn America, having not played their domestically since 2007.
Cavani has scored seven goals in 25 appearances in all competitions for United this season.

United step up interest in Varane alternative
Manchester United are reportedly ready to step up their interest in signing Villarreal centre-back Pau Torres as an alternative to Raphael Varane this summer.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been looking for a new partner for Harry Maguire over the past two transfer windows. That position is expected to once again be his main focus come the end of the season.
Reports emerged last week that United had been given the green light to sign Varane, with Real Madrid looking to offload the experienced France star.
The 27-year-old has just over a year remaining on his current contract. To that end, Real would sooner sell the centre-back rather than lose him for nothing in 2022.
Manchester City are also said to be keen on the player, although a switch to Old Trafford looks ‘more likely’. Read more…
