Edinson Cavani was very close to Mouth as a luxury reinforcement but finally chose Valencia from Spain. The Uruguayan striker spoke with Juan roman riquelme and even received a formal offer, but at the last moment he opted to continue in European football. Now the scorer spoke about the subject and recounted how he reacted when he found out that a group of fans was waiting for him at the airport.
In an interview granted to the program “Dos de Punta”, “Edi” was honest about it: “I found out about everyone who went to the airport thinking I was coming. I knew it because my people and my friends let me know, but that all that was created as it was created, even many times saying things that were not«. «What leaves me calm is that with Roman we were always clear, we always talked and we knew what our situation was like. That leaves me very calm », he clarified.
“Did he congratulate you on your debut in Valencia?” Cavani was asked about Riquelme. And the Uruguayan striker clarified that he did not receive messages from the blue and gold vice president, although he seemed understandable. «He could not write to me to congratulate me on my debut, but it is logical because he is busy with his things, it is fine. Later he will write to say hello or I will write to him to say hello. Without a doubt,” he maintained.
The reasons of Edinson Cavani and the explanation of Juan Román Riquelme
A few days ago, Edinson Cavani already spoke about his failed pass to Boca and explained that the wish of his entire family was to continue in the Old Continent. That is why he took the opportunity to fulfill the dream of playing in Spain: «I was attracted to the project, without a doubt, but, due to the World Cup, right now I prioritized a future in Europe, and specifically in Spain. We thanked Roman very much, but you never know what will happen in the future.
For his part, Juan Román Riquelme clarified at the time that he was never certain that Cavani was going to wear the blue and gold shirt. «I spoke with him two and a half years ago. I speak very often. It was very clear with me. He told me that he was arranged with Villarreal or I don’t know what other team. But a bomb exploded there and they said ‘tomorrow he travels to Buenos Aires,'” said the vice president of Boca.
