Edinson Cavani, now a Manchester United player, admitted in an interview with radio '2 de punta' that he considered retiring temporarily from football when he and his partner tested positive for coronavirus. At the time, he was still without a team.

When Cavani was without a team and suffering from the effects of the coronavirus, he thought about retiring from football for a while until the worst had passed. He spoke about this in an interview with radio '2 de punta'.

"It was after we arrived from our holidays in Spain. We took a test that was negative, and then we took the test again because my girlfriend had shown some symptoms. The second test was positive for both of them," said the footballer.

"Beyond the fact that I love football, there was also the health of the family to think about. And when you are in your place, close to your family, your land... I considered stopping playing and staying at home, hoping that all this would pass," acknowledged the new Manchester United signing.

Fortunately for him, that stage is behind him and he has a new adventure in England ahead of him. He became, at the close of the transfer market, one of the last United signings. He comes to the Premier League with great expectations on his shoulders.
