Real Madrid has made a late move to sign Paris Saint –Germain star as a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo according to report in the Spanish media.

Edinson Cavani has emerged as a major target for the Santiago Bernabeu hierarchy in a bid to provide more depth in the forward line.

Real Madrid has been in the market for a replacement for the Portuguese striker with the likes of Neymar, Eden Hazard and Kylian Mbappe has been touted for a move to the Spanish Capital but none of the deals has materialized.

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has shifted his attention on the Uruguayan forward in order to afford such display against Atletico Madrid where Real Madrid dominated but lacked the cutting edge against their fierce neighbours in the UEFA Super Cup Estonia.

Though Real Madrid has recorded two wins in two La Liga games so far with Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale send a huge impression under Julen Lopetegui but their lacklustre display against Diego Simeone’s men gave the Real Madrid directors something to worry about.

The 31-year-old is not on the same level as Ronaldo but he would be able to give the Bernabeu fans the goals needed to win matches if signed.
