There is a principle of agreement with the striker, but Alcácer must leave to face his final contract.
Cavani, no more. It is the great objective to reinforce Villarreal’s forward. The Uruguayan striker who is currently without a team, after completing his contract with United, is the one chosen by Unai Emery. The yellow club already has the player’s yes and is waiting to finalize the operation of Paco Álcacer to give it the go-ahead.
The club, as its president assured a week ago, needs to sell before making additions and the departure of Alcácer, who is training outside the group until he finds a team, is the key. Celta has pulled strings to get hold of the Valencian striker and that would facilitate the move for Cavani.
All this movement arises just when the Uruguayan was very close to signing for Fenerbahçe . If he signed for the yellow team, it would be his fourth major championship, since he has already played in Ligue 1 with PSG, Serie A with Palermo and Napoli, and the Premier League with Manchester United.
Emery and Cavani know each other perfectly. Both coincided at PSG in which Cavani became the French team’s all-time top scorer before leaving for the Premier.
At 34 years old, the Uruguayan is still a goalscorer and for Villarreal it would be a change of pieces since Alcácer and Día are on the starting ramp and it would leave room for a spectacular player.
