Inter Miami to sign Edinson Cavani
Multiple reporters in America have claimed that Inter Miami are set to sign Edinson Cavani once his contract at PSG ends.
Inter Miami will begin life in the MLS in 2020.
The club are currently building their squad, having signed three players already.
Those players are defender Christian Makoun, forward Julian Carranza (currently on loan with Banfield) and midfielder Matias Pellegrini (currently on loan with Estudiantes).
So will Cavani be the club’s fourth signing – and biggest to date?
FOX Deportes journalist Alvaro Izquierdo has claimed that Cavani will join Inter Miami after PSG.

When will Edinson Cavani leave PSG?
Now 32, Edinson Cavani’s contract at PSG expires at the end of the season.
Cavani joined PSG in 2013 from Napoli, and has gone on to make over 270 appearances for the Ligue 1 outfit.
In those games, Cavani has netted 193 and assisted 40.
The Uruguayan has also won five league titles, four French cups and five French league cups during his stint in France.
There had been suggestions from RMC Sport that PSG could extend Cavani’s deal.
However, the latest updates from America suggest that won’t happen.
