Former Manchester United striker Edinson Cavani is closing in on a move to Villarreal and end up becoming a teammate of Super Eagles forward Samuel Chukwueze.

According to MARCA, the 35-year-old left United as a free agent following the expiry of his contract at the end of last month and will join the Yellow Submarine and reunite with Unai Emery once the club has sold Paco Alcacer who is attracting interest from Celta Vigo.

While the Uruguayan international has undeniably been one of the best strikers across Europe over the last decade it was under the former Arsenal manager where he produced his best goalscoring form.

From 98 games played under the Villarreal boss, the 133-time Uruguay international scored a staggering 89 goals and provided a further 20 assists.

Unlike during his time at Old Trafford, Cavani was frequently fit and available to play under the Spaniard.

After scoring 17 goals in his first season with the Red Devils, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer convinced the South American to extend his stay by a further year.

But within a few weeks of the 2021-22 season starting, Manchester United had announced the return of legendary figure Cristiano Ronaldo.

Not only had Cavani’s place as the club’s main marksman diminished, but he also handed over his number seven shirt to the five-time Ballon d’Or winner.
