Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani wants to move to Spain if he leaves the French capital upon the expiry of his contract, according to his mother.
Cavani has a matter of months left on his deal in Paris, although those terms are to be extended to allow him to finish the season once the action resumes.
The Uruguayan is expected to move on when he becomes a free agent and his mother, Berta Gomez, has confirmed that there are “many clubs” looking to secure his son’s services.
However, she also told Ovacion Digital that Cavani would prefer to move to Spain.
“Fortunately today, there are many clubs interested in signing Cavani,” she said. “He still does not know where he will play, he has three months left in Paris
“We have to think carefully. At the moment, he has no intention of returning to Uruguay, he is planning to continue in Europe and would like to go to Spain.”
Manchester United were linked with the 33-year-old in the January transfer window, when the Red Devils were on the hunt for a striker following Marcus Rashford’s injury layoff.
Indeed, one report claimed that Cavani rejected a sizeable offer to move to Old Trafford.
Atletico Madrid were also heavily credited with interest in the forward and the Spanish club could renew their interest when the transfer window re-opens.
It is unclear when the window will fit in, with league campaigns across Europe on hold.
