Edinson Cavani‘s brother has dropped a hint that the striker could be looking to leave Manchester United in the near future.

The 34-year-old has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford with his opportunities proving to be limited so far this season.

Barcelona have previously been linked with the veteran striker and now Brazilian side Corinthians are said to be keeping tabs over a potential move.

Cavani’s brother, and agent, has reportedly stated that they will listen to any Brazilian team with a good project.

As per Globo Esporte, Walter Guglielmone said: ‘We have to wait a bit (about a return to South America), we will see what possibilities exist.

‘Obviously, if any team from Brazil comes up with a good project, we can always listen.

‘I have an obligation to get Cavani all the options.’

Cavani previously admitted he wants to return and play in South America after spending 14 years in Europe.

The striker made an impact in his first season at Old Trafford, scoring 17 goals in 39 appearances across all competitions.

His performances led to the club deciding to extend his contract by a further season. 

The Uruguay international’s current contract is set to expire at the end of 2021/22, meaning an imminent exit could be on the cards, although new interim manager Ralf Rangnick may have alternative plans.

The striker has played just 274 minutes of action so far this season, due to a number of injuries as well as the club bringing Cristiano Ronaldo back to the club in the summer from Juventus.
