New Manchester United signing Edinson Cavani reveals that he would be interested in a move to Argentine giants Boca Juniors once his time at Old Trafford ends.

New Manchester United signing Edinson Cavani has revealed that he would like to join Boca Juniors once his time at Old Trafford comes to an end.

The 33-year-old only joined the Red Devils on Monday, putting pen to paper on a lucrative one-year deal with the option of a further 12 months after that.

Cavani insists that he fully intends to see out the full two-year agreement with United before deciding whether to return to South America, where his preferred choice would be a switch to Argentine giants Boca.

"[Juan] Roman [Riquelme, Boca vice-president] wrote to me with great respect, he wanted to know how I was in this situation, with a very particular salary and we had a very respectful talk," Cavani told ESPN.

"Boca is a giant of the world, any footballer would like to play there. There have been several Uruguayans that have played there. Following the history of our football arouses curiosity a bit.

"There are some secrets from the conversation with Roman, you have to ask him if he wants to tell them. We will see what happens in the future. It would be very nice to be able to play at Boca one day.

"I have a two-year contract with Manchester United. I want to do my best here. I feel good. The day I return to South America is not going to be when I have nothing left to give. I am realistic, I want to play until I feel good. I will play these two years and see if I continue or go back to South America."

Cavani also revealed that he came close to retiring from football while he was a free agent during the summer, after he and his girlfriend contracted coronavirus.

"Your family's health comes first. Of course I considered the idea of ​​quitting football. It is true that I managed that option and that possibility to stop playing and stay in the countryside, dedicate myself to my life in the countryside," he told Argentine radio program Dos de Punta.

Cavani, who will wear the iconic number seven shirt at Old Trafford, could make his debut against his former club Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.
