Paris-Saint German forward Edinson Cavani is once again being linked with a move away from the club, with Chelsea, Manchester United and Juventus reportedly ready to battle it out for his services.

Juventus Contract Agreement Reported

Saturday, April 2

According to Turin-based daily Tuttosport (h/t Football Italia), Cavani has already met with the Bianconeri and agreed to a three-year contract. Per the report, Juventus will turn to PSG and negotiate a lower fee than his current €40 million asking price.

Chelsea are also monitoring the situation, but Juventus is reportedly Cavani's first choice. The Uruguay international enjoyed the most successful spell of his career in Serie A, emerging as a top star with Palermo and Napoli, and the Old Lady will be in the market for a striker if Alvaro Morata returns to Real Madrid this summer.

Cavani has been with Les Parisiens since 2013 but has never lived up to the lofty expectations he arrived with from Napoli. El Matador has often been forced to play in a wide role to accommodate star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and while he has still found success, the Sweden international has always overshadowed him at the Parc des Princes.

He recently admitted to Telefoot (h/t Football Italia) he's going through the "toughest period of [his] career," and at this point, a transfer seems likely. Just a few years ago, Cavani was viewed as one of the top strikers in the world, scoring well over 20 goals per season for Napoli―there will be plenty of interest in his services when he decides to leave Paris.

Manchester United have also been linked with El Matador, and his father has already urged his son to move to Old Trafford, per Sport5 (h/t ESPN FC).
