Veteran forward Edinson Cavani has taken a major decision regarding his future at Manchester United.

Edinson Cavani has reportedly turned down the offer of a Manchester United contract extension in a bid to return to South America.

The veteran forward joined United on a one-year deal last summer after he was released by PSG. So far, he has scored seven goals in 25 total appearances for the Red Devils this term.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been pleased with Cavani’s work ethic and his influence on young forwards Marcus Rashford, Mason Greenwood and Anthony Martial.

However, the striker’s stay in Manchester will seemingly be a short one if reports are to be believed.

Argentinean publication Ole claim that Cavani has made up his mind to join Boca Juniors in the summer and see out his career with the club, fulfilling a lifelong dream as he has mentioned in the past.

Boca are still skippered by the former United forward Carlos Tevez, but the 37-year-old could be replaced in Buenos Aires by the ex-PSG frontman.

The report adds that Cavani has already spoken to Boca Juniors president Juan Roman Riquelme, and made clear that he wants to end his days in Europe in order to join his boyhood club.
