MADRID (AFP) - Former Manchester United striker Edinson Cavani has signed a two season deal to play for Valencia, the Spanish top flight club said on Monday (Aug 29).
The 35-year-old Uruguayan was a free agent after leaving Manchester United, who he joined from Paris Saint-Germain where he scored 200 goals.
"Valencia CF have reached an agreement to sign Edinson Cavani for the next two seasons until the 13th of June 2024," the club said announcing the news.
Cavani has also scored 58 goals in 133 appearances for Uruguay, and has expressed his desire to play at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
Valencia are coached by Italy's Gennaro Gattuso, who won the Italian Cup with Napoli in 2020.
Valencia finished ninth in La Liga last season and lost the Copa del Rey final to Real Betis on penalties.
