Cavani tipped for ‘emotional’ link up with Suarez at Atletico Madrid over Manchester United move


Uruguay's Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez

Edinson Cavani is being tipped to head to Atletico Madrid for an “emotional” link-up with Luis Suarez rather than make amove to Manchester United.

Several landing spots have been mooted for the 33-year-old frontman, with heavyweight sides in England and Spain said to be leading the queue.

Atletico do have an offer on the table but the Liga outfit must move Diego Costa off their books before seeing any paperwork signed, while United are yet to enter into discussions.

Daniel Zicari, who worked with Cavani at Danubio, does not expect that to be a problem, with one prolific South American expected to join another at Wanda Metropolitano.

He told AS: “Here we take it for granted that Cavani will be a new Atleti player. It was a shame that it did not materialise in January.

“It would be very emotional for him to end up with Suarez. They are both from the same city.”

Cavani and Suarez have starred alongside one another at international level and could form a devastating partnership in Madrid. Zicari hopes Diego Simeone will make every effort to turn that potential into reality.

He feels Cavani would thrive with Atletico, having previously been prolific in Italy and Spainwith 353 goals at club levelacross 586 appearances to date.

“He is a great player and Atletico, a great club,” Zicari added. “If he plays as a team, I think he can exceed 20 goals. He is a decisive footballer with a high percentage of goals and chances.

“In addition to contributing many goals, he also has a great way of playing, position on the pitch, he is very positive, he is very supportive in the game.”
