Calciomercato Roma, Cavani is back in fashion after the lack of agreement between the Uruguayan striker and Benfica.
Edinson Cavani no longer goes to Benfica and is back in the sights of Rome's transfer market. The Giallorossi must make the center forward squad more substantial and in any case they must protect themselves in case of Dzeko's departure.
The negotiation between Cavani and Benfica, as reported by the Portuguese press, failed due to the economic demands of the Uruguayan bomber.
Cavani had flown to Lisbon together with his representatives but his requests were considered excessive by the leadership of the 'encarnados'.
According to what 'A Bola' writes, both in the newsstand and online editions, Cavani's agent brother had asked for a salary of ten million a year for a three-year contract, an inadmissible proposal for Benfica, which immediately closed the negotiation.
According to the same sports daily, there was also a 'particular' request that would have greatly irritated the management of the Lisbon club.
Cavani is released, after his contract with PSG expired at the end of June.
So now to satisfy the coach Jorge Jesus, who is asking for the purchase of a striker, Benfica will go to another Uruguayan, the 21-year-old Darwin Nunez, who has made a name for himself in Spain with Almeria.
