Manchester United forward Edinson Cavani is open to the idea of joining Real Madrid at the start of 2022, according to a report.

Manchester United forward Edinson Cavani is reportedly open to the idea of joining Real Madrid during the January transfer window.

The 34-year-old started Saturday's Premier League clash with Everton but has fallen down the pecking order at Old Trafford following Cristiano Ronaldo's return to Old Trafford over the summer.

A recent report claimed that Real Madrid were weighing up a January move for Cavani, with Carlo Ancelotti's side keen to sign competition for Karim Benzema at centre-forward.

According to Mundo Deportivo, the Uruguay international is open to moving to the Bernabeu, as he dreams of playing in Spain before the end of his professional career.

The report claims that whether Cavani pushes for a January exit is likely to depend on how much football he receives between now and the opening of the winter window.

The South American - out of contract at Old Trafford next summer - has scored 17 times and registered six assists in 43 appearances for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side in all competitions.
