Real Madrid ‘schedules a shock January loan for Edinson Cavani as a stopover before signing Kylian Mbappe’… after the Uruguayan lost his place to Cristiano Ronaldo at Manchester United
- Real Madrid is looking for reinforcements in the attacking area
- Next summer, the Spanish giants are ready to release Kylian Mbappé
- Carlo Ancelotti reportedly wants to add Edinson Cavani to his ranks in January
- The veteran striker has lost his place at Old Trafford to Cristiano Ronaldo
Real Madrid are reportedly engaged in a jolt in January to bring Edinson Cavani from Manchester United to the Bernabeu.
Carlo Ancelotti is looking for firepower and Cavani is a perfect fit for the Spanish giants, given his availability after falling down the pecking order at Old Trafford.
Cavani signed an extension with Manchester United after a promising first season in English football, but suffered an immediate setback after the club completed an emotional re-signing of fan favorite Cristiano Ronaldo.
Edinson Cavani could be ready to move to Real Madrid in January
Now, according to reports in El NationalMadrid president Florentino Perez will approve a transfer for Cavani in January.
The report says Madrid boss Ancelotti had a list of players he wanted this summer, including both Cavani and Arsenal forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
In the end, the Spaniards only managed to bring in the promising French youngster Eduardo Camawinga from Rennes.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had convinced Cavani to commit to an extra year at Old Trafford
With the return of Cristiano Ronaldo, Cavani has given up his central position at the front
With Kylian Mbappe top priority to sign a free deal next summer once his contract with Paris Saint-Germain expires, Cavani is seen as a perfect takeover of a short-term loan from the Premier League.
Since Ronaldo’s return to England, he has immediately taken up Cavani’s central attacking role, scoring five goals in five games since then.
Real Madrid currently have several strikers in their roster including Luka Jovic and Mariano alongside talisman Karim Benzema.
However, the France international is seen as the only consistent go-getter in Madrid’s ranks, forcing Ancelotti to look at a loan from Cavani to keep Madrid on a winning footing.
