Edinson Cavani terminated his contract with Valencia


Edinson Cavani’s contract with Valencia has been terminated ahead of an expected move to Argentine side Boca Juniors.

The 36-year-old striker had a contract until June 2024 with the Spanish side after joining from Manchester United last summer.

But the former Paris-Saint Germain man scored just seven goals in 28 games last season as the La Liga side finished two points above the relegation zone.

“Valencia CF and Edinson Cavani have reached an agreement to terminate the Uruguayan forward’s contract with the club,” a statement said.

Cavani remains part of the international formation with Uruguay and has scored 58 goals in 136 appearances for his country.


He left Danubio in his homeland for Serie A side Palermo in 2007, before developing a reputation as an elite goalscorer in spells with Napoli and PSG before his move to United in 2020.

Boca Juniors won their 35th Argentinian league title in 2022, but are eighth in this season’s table as things stand.

Former United goalkeeper Sergio Romero and former Marseille striker Dario Benedetto are the stars of the Buenos Aires squad
