According to recent reports, Edinson Cavani has long agreed on terms with Atletico Madrid, and Inter has only ever been an alternative for him.
The striker will be a free agent from June 30 as his contract is set to expire with Paris Saint-Germain, so they can sign for another club already.
After weeks of speculation, former teammate Ander Herrera told AS that Cavani “would like to play in Spain,” particularly after Dries Mertens decided to extend his contract with Napoli.
Cavani was never really bound for San Siro anyway, as he had signed a pre-contract deal with Atletico Madrid months before, says Inter transfer specialists gossip fcinternews.it.
After the Mertens turnaround, it is claimed that Cavani was an option considered, but negotiations never really got underway.
If Atletico Madrid is willing to deposit the current contract or is seeking to renegotiate the terms in a post-COVID-19 environment remains to be seen.The Uruguay international had accepted a two-year deal worth 10 million euros per season.
