Transfer: Leeds United considering bid to sign Edinson Cavani

July 21, 2020 By Oscar Rojas
Team owner Andrea Radrizzani admitted that a marquee signing has been in the works all year, reminding fans how they nearly signed Zlatan Ibrahimovic last winter.

After 16 years of waiting, Leeds United will be back in the Premier League for the 2020-21 season. In order to get the club back where it belongs, owner Andrea Radrizzani seems ready to splash the cash and sign a top-notch striker to help the team in its new EPL adventure.

In an interview with Sky Sport Italia, Radrizzani admitted that hiring Cavani is quite tempting for the club, especially since his free agent status would only require the club to offer him a good wage to have him around.

"In addition to his quality, Cavani could contribute with his physicality and adapt here, but I've never talked about him with the coach. Having said that, we've certainly thought about him and we'll see, given he's still available on a free transfer," Radrizzani stated.

Cavani just finished his seven-year stint at PSG as the team's all-time top scorer, having found the back of the net 200 times in 302 games. Cavani has been linked to Premier League clubs such as Manchester United and Arsenal in the past, but none of them have gone out in public to state their desire to sign him. "El Matador" has also been linked to Benfica this summer, and his future will surely be sorted out in the next couple of weeks.

Radrizzani looked back to the winter transfer window, where the club even made an attempt to sign none other than Zlatan Ibrahimovic. While doing so, Radrizzani admitted that "Ibra" would have been a great signing for the club then, and even if he is yet to commit to a club for next season, the possibility of signing him now seems a bit far-fetched.

'Ibrahimovic will certainly be difficult. We tried to sign him in January, but he chose to join Milan and the deal vanished. Now I think it's too late, the intensity of English football is different," Radrizzani added

Leeds United will return to the Premier League after sixteen years in the lower tier categories of the English football system. Led by Marcelo Bielsa, the club seems ready to make its presence felt by attempting the transfer of such a relevant name in the football landscape.
