Faced with the salary demands of Edinson Cavani, Benfica Lisbon have simply decided to put an end to the negotiations.
Umpteenth twist in the Cavani soap opera. While the future of the top scorer in the history of Paris Saint-Germain (200 goals) seemed to be written on the side of Benfica Lisbon, the Portuguese club have finally made the decision to put an end to the discussions with the Uruguayan striker 33 years old, reports this Saturday Record.
Yet a few days ago it seemed very close to an agreement between the two parties, based on a three-year contract and an estimated annual salary of 10 million euros. However, such emoluments would not be sustainable for the finances of Benfica.
As a result, the Lisbon side have already turned to another track, the one leading to Almeria’s striker Darwin Nunez, according to Portuguese press reports. Free to engage with the club of his choice since July 1, the Matador will have to find another base.
