Edison Cavani has a one year contract with Manchester United and it was reported in February that the clubs were negotiating a possible extension for one more season.
The Uruguayan has had his eye on the legendary South American club for some time, dreaming of playing for Boca Juniors since a child.
Manchester United do have an option to trigger an extension for one more season, but this could be decent news for United from a business standpoint.
United pay Cavani a whooping €200,000 a week salary. Extremely steep for an older, often injured and back up striker. United could use someone like Cavani, a bigger, experienced and clinical striker to replace him.
Given the current financial situations of all clubs, letting Cavani walk this summer might not be a bad situation, it could be a positive.
