In recent weeks, the names of Edinson Cavani and Edin Dzeko have been associated with FC Barcelona for the succession of Luis Suarez. While these two attackers have passed their thirties, Barça has decided to abandon these tracks.
To revolutionize its workforce, FC Barcelona has decided to separate from Ivan Rakitic (Sevilla FC), Nelson Semedo (Wolverhampton), and Luis Suarez (Atlético). While he lost his number 9, Barca reportedly intends to replace him in this transfer window. With this in mind, the Catalan club has identified several targets, including Memphis Depay and Lautaro Martinez. But that wouldn’t be all, as the names of Edinson Cavani and Edin Dzeko have also been linked with the Blaugrana team in recent weeks. However, it seems that Barca has already drawn the line on the two strikers in their 30s.
Are Cavani and Dzeko too old for Barça?
According to information from Mundo Deportivo, the profiles of Edinson Cavani (33 years) and Edin Dzeko (34 years) do not correspond to the policy of rejuvenation of FC Barcelona. Thus, Barça would have decided to put aside both the top scorer of PSG (200 achievements) and the current resident of AS Rome. Therefore, Edinson Cavani and Edin Dzeko will not have to defend the colors of the Blaugrana club this season.
