Whatever happens to Leeds United this season, the club’s fans will remember the bizarre rumors about Edinson Cavani for a while. Andrea Radrizzani’s comments reported by Football Italia in July intrigued the whole football world. The owner of Leeds suggested that the Whites would be happy to have Cavani in the team.
Unfortunately for football lovers who did want to see Cavani end up at Elland Road, it seemed that Marcelo Bielsa’s club were going to miss out to Benfica. However, Cavani’s potential move to the Portuguese sidefailed due to his enormous wage demands.
According to reports, Benfica have found a new target as they have been offered Michy Batshuayi. And while it is not clear whether he will be a footballer who interests them, it is necessary to mention that he was previously on their radar in 2013.
However, the Portuguese side are not the only team to have been offered Batshuayi this summer. Leeds United are also interested in the Chelsea striker.
