Agent reveals ‘unhappy’ mindset of Cavani as new suitors join striker hunt

Edinson Cavani definitely sees a future for himself away from Manchester United after a South American-based agent lifted the lid on the striker’s unhappiness at his Old Trafford situation.

The veteran Uruguayan star has been forced into something of a backseat with the Red Devils this season. The summer signings of Jadon Sancho and Cristiano Ronaldo leave Cavani as little more than a bit-part player.

Amid the imminent signing of Torres, Cury claims Barca may be sending mixed messages to Cavani.

“Today, we’re not really sure of what happens at Barcelona. To give you an idea, I was still working there when they said that [Luis] Suarez was old and we paid him to leave, but then they signed [Sergio] Aguero, who’s older than him.

“So, the club has been doing the things…
