After the departure of Luis Suárez, Grêmio can count on his compatriot, who also made history in the Uruguay shirt. This is o Edinson Cavani, who belongs to Boca Juniors (ARG), and received an offer from the club from Rio Grande do Sul for next season. In this sense, the Imortal Tricolor management is assessing the situation of the player, who was also offered to other Brazilian clubs.

At the moment, Tricolor considers the negotiations to be realistic in financial terms, but there are still no talks between the two parties. The striker was included in the Xeneize squad, which was the finalist of the Copa Libertadores, and has a contract with Boca until the end of 2024. According to journalist Chico Garcia of Band, the athlete would be unhappy considering that Boca is out of the Libertadores 2024 and his managers also offered him to Flamengo.

For 2024, Grêmio must make changes in the offensive sector, as Suárez will not remain and Ferreira may leave the club. So far, only Everton Galdino has officially extended his contract.

Old conversations

Although the prices are much cheaper than Suárez, the Rio Grande do Sul Tricolor is cautious about a possible contract signing. Last season, Cavani played 16 games and scored just three goals. Before concluding a deal with Manchester United in 2020, the Uruguayan was mentioned by former president Romildo Bolzan's management, but the talks did not progress.

Grêmio is already monitoring center forward Funes Mori, who plays for Monterrey, Mexico. In addition, he is also interested in Lautaro Diaz, who plays in Ecuador for Independent del Valle.
