There are still a few details to be resolved, but optimism prevails at this time before Friday’s transfer deadline.
Cavani, who will turn 33 next month, has already agreed on personal terms with the Colchoneros. On Wednesday he could have gone to Madrid to undergo medical treatment and sign the contract.
Uruguay International is just waiting for the full agreement between the two clubs.
Initially, PSG did not want to let him leave in January, despite Cavani not having had much to do this season due to the arrival of Mauro Icardi and the injuries he suffered from.
PSG rejected Athletes’ first offer of € 10 million, but the player’s insistence paid off.
Cavani really wanted to join Atletico and Leonardo, PSG’s sporting director, finally opened the doors and began negotiating for a greater compensation with Andrea Berta, his counterpart of Atletico.
After joining Napoli in 2013, Cavani is ready for a new chapter in his career. He will leave PSG as the club’s top scorer with 198 goals in 283 games after six and a half years in the French capital.
