Manchester United striker Edinson Cavani has reportedly accepted a contract offer to join Barcelona in January.
The 34-year-old’s future has been the subject of growing debate in recent weeks, with reports suggesting that he is considering his future at Old Trafford.
A mixture of injuries and competition for places has limited Cavani to just two Premier League starts this season, while he has only six months remaining on his contract.
Barcelona are understood to have identified the Uruguay international as a possible replacement for Sergio Aguero following the Argentine’s retirement, with reports on Friday claiming that the Catalan giants had lodged a lucrative contract offer for Cavani.
Spanish outlet Marca reports that Cavani has now reached an agreement with Barcelona, having chosen them over the possibility of joining Boca Juniors.
Barca still need to come to terms on an agreement with Manchester United, although the Red Devils are thought to be open to the idea of shifting Cavani from their wage bill.
The veteran striker has scored 18 goals in 47 appearances for Man United in total.
