Edinson Cavani could return to Italy this summer as his unsuccessful spell with Manchester United draws to a close with his contract up in June.
The Uruguay talisman has not has as much game time as he would’ve liked with the Red Devils so far this season – and looks set to find a new challenge elsewhere when he becomes free to do so.
The 35-year-old, who played in Serie A between 2007 and 2013 with first Palermo and then Napoli, could return to the continent with Inter Milan – but he is one of several targets for Simone Inzaghi’s side who are looking to retain their league title this season.
Calciomercato report that Inter are interested in signing Cavani as well as Gianluca Scamacca of Sassuolo and former West Ham striker Sebastien Haller of Ajax.
Cavani scored 17 goals across 39 fixtures during an impressive debut season at Old Trafford under the guidance of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer – but hasn’t been so prolific under Ralf Rangnick.
The forward has managed only two goals from 17 fixtures in 2021/22, scoring once in nine games since Solskjaer was sacked back in November.

Earlier this month, Rangnick suggested that Cavani had ruled himself out of the Manchester derby.
He said: “Edi trained well in the last three days but, at the end, he didn’t feel quite well enough to be able to play.”
Having said of the striker at the turn of the year: “I told him from the very first day he is a highly important player, he is probably the only one who can play as a striker [with his] back to goal and face to goal.
“And as I said, his professionalism and his work ethic is just amazing. I told him I desperately want him to stay and stay until the end of the season, and he knows that.”
