Manchester United will reportedly hold talks with Edinson Cavani over a new deal amid claims that the 34-year-old wants to return to Argentina with Boca Juniors.

The Red Devils signed Cavani on deadline day in a deal worth £9million until the end of the season. But according to a report from Ole, the Uruguayan has "agreed a deal" to join Boca Juniors on a three-year deal at the end of the current season.

The report also stated that Cavani was willing to take a paycut to move back home rather than continue at Old Trafford. His existing contract with United has the option of a 12-month extension, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had previously revealed that the club would hold talks with their star striker before the on-going season ended.

He said: "I can only say Edinson has done well. We'll sit down and speak with him in the near future to see his plans and our plans."

And now, the Daily Mail have reiterated that United will hold talks with Cavani over extending his deal in Manchester, with Solskjaer keen on keeping the former Paris Saint-Germain striker at the club longer. Cavani has scored seven goals in 25 appearances for United so far but has missed a number of games due to muscle injuries.

Cavani is reportedly friends with Boca president Juan Roman Riquelme and revealed in October that they spoke about a move to the Argentine club this summer. "Boca is a giant of the world, any player would love to play for them," said Cavani before concluding, "There are some secrets from the talk with Roman, you have to ask him if he wants to tell them. We will see what happens in the future."
