In the latest report by The Sun UK, Edinson Cavani has emerged as a transfer target for Football Club Barcelona in January.
For your information, Edinson Cavani joined United on a free transfer in 2020 and has scored some important goals for the club over the past year.
He has 17 goals and six assists in 43 appearances for the Red Devils and is a favorite with the fans.
With these numbers, the Uruguayan star will surely be a big player for Barcelona as they’re currently struggling in front of goal.
It’ll be very interesting to see how Cavani will fit into the squad. In this article, we’ll be looking at a possible way Koeman could line him up. Take a look below:
Ronald Koeman could keep using the 4-3-3 formation.
According to the latest reports, Clement Lenglet could return to the starting XI after the international break, as such, he could form a partnership with Barcelona’s current best defender Ronald Araujo.
The duo of Jordi Alba and Sergino Dest doesn’t seem to have a major competition in their positions, as such, they should keep their places.
The trio of Sergio Busquets, Pedri Gonzalez, and Frenkie De Jong seems to be Koeman’s preferred trio in the middle of the park. As such, they’re expected to keep their places.
This is where Edinson Cavani will come in. The Uruguayan star is a natural striker, as such, he’s expected to take up that position if he eventually joins.
The duo of Memphis Depay and Yusuf Demir could help open more spaces for him from the flanks.
Here’s an illustration of the possible lineup below:
