That Edinson Cavani can reach Boca has been said since 2019 when, then consulted by River or “Xeneize” in the framework of his opinion of Argentine football, the Uruguayan said: “For me, Boca is a team that inspires. I like it”. The truth is that today, more than ever, that went from a baseless rumor to a possible announcement, since the striker evaluated the offer that the Argentine club sent him.
The news caused a furor and the expectation is great. This Saturday, Edinson Cavani will analyze in Salto, his native land, the details of the formal proposal. He will do it in tune with his personality, calm, away from all hysteria and aware that putting on the blue and gold shirt may be the best option to reach the Qatar 2022 World Cup in full and follow in the footsteps of Luis Suarezhis compatriot and friend, who after rejecting an offer from River struck the blow by accepting the one from Nacional and dressed again as “Bolso”, where in the second official match he already scored a goal.
To show how Cavani goes through his days, it will suffice to replicate his post this Saturday at 7:39 am: a postcard of the first hours of sun in Salto, on the dirt roads that lead him to his field, where he usually shares most of his time with his family made up of his partner, Jocelyn Burgardt, their daughter, India Cavani, and the other two children that the striker had with his former wife, María Soledad Cabris, with whom he ended up on very bad terms.
“Good day”, He wrote about the country landscape and, how could it be otherwise, accompanied the story with the emoji of a mate.

Now yes: Edinson Cavani appears “closer” to Boca
The Uruguayan striker Edinson Cavani appears closer to Boca Juniors and could be a concrete reinforcement of the xeneize team, after tonight – from his surroundings – it was admitted that the player is “seriously analyzing” the possibility of playing in Argentina.
Sources close to the attacker of the selected “celeste” trusted that the footballer “could accept” the proposal that -long ago- was formulated by Juan Román Riquelme, one of the vice presidents of the club, to join the auriazul team.
“Only some small things would have to be modified around the duration of the contract and iron out some tax issues. But the pass, now, is more possible than ever,” they told the agency. Telam close to the scorer of Salto, 35 years old.
Is that the mentioned possibility that the attacker is linked with Villarreal “is losing strength”, because the Spanish entity has not yet managed to sell any of the players it has in the portfolio and that situation would prevent it from reaching the ‘Yellow Submarine’ due to the issue of the so-called fair play financial.
However, the complexity of the arrival of Cavani, who is looking to win filming to be in tune with his country’s team that will play the Qatar 2022 World Cup, lies in the fact that Boca should close the operation before Monday, the date on which the book of passes for Argentine soccer will conclude.
“For now there is no news, but Sunday could be a key day,” said a source from the Ribera entity, adding: “The intention is that (Edinson) Cavani signs a contract until December 2023, with an exit clause for June of that year”.
In principle, the former English Manchester United player – who is training in Montevideo on the property owned by the Uruguayan Football Association – would plan to travel to Buenos Aires this Sunday “to try to close, face to face” with the xeneize leaders his eventual link with the team of DT Hugo Ibarra.
If the parties agree, the striker would undergo a medical check-up on Monday and that day he would be presented as a new “xeneize” player.
