Defeated in Tel Aviv in the first leg of the Europa League (1-0), Nice did not start its European adventure in the best possible way. In Ligue 1, it’s barely better with two points in two matches. Aware of the shortcomings of his team, the management of Nice and in particular Ian Moody and Dave Brailsford, respectively official adviser and Director of Sport for INEOS, have decided to move up a gear at the end of August. If the first named has already made an offer for Blackburn striker Ben Brereton Diaz, the offensive objective is quite different.
If the Gym has placed itself to recover Marcelo, the former glory of Real Madrid, and dream of Nicolas Pepé, the Riviera club wants to hit hard on the transfer market. According to our information, Nice still dreams of Edinson Cavani. A rather complex file to complete, but not necessarily for financial reasons.
Edinson Cavani’s brother spoke with the Gym
The Uruguayan international, who knows Ligue 1 perfectly and who made the heyday of PSG for 7 years (200 goals in 301 matches in all competitions with Paris), has already repelled a first Nice lead. It must be said that Cavani only aspires to one thing, to join Villarreal since his free departure from Manchester United after two contrasting seasons (12 goals in 41 Premier League matches).
But the OGCN, which has considerable resources, has financial arguments to put forward. According to our information, the Riviera club, which met the 35-year-old striker’s brother in Nice in recent hours, has made a contract offer greater than anything that the former double top scorer of Ligue 1 since leaving England. One thing is certain, Lucien Favre has validated this track which could be a big blow for Nice.
