EDINSON CAVANI is unhappy at Manchester United and will return to South America this summer, according to the player's father.
Luis Cavani has opened up to Argentine outlet TyC Sports, revealing his son will almost certainly quit Old Trafford in the coming window.
Cavani Snr says the striker wants to move to move back to South America to be closer to his family.
Luis even claimed Edinson, 34, has been in contact with Boca Juniors over a summer move.
Cavani's dad added the striker's FA race-row sanction left him 'very upset', leading to him wanting to end his stay in England after just one season.
He also revealed Cavani wants to 'fight for something important' in a clear dig at Man Utd.
Luis told TyC Sports: "My son does not feel comfortable in England and wants to be close to the family again.
"Edinson is going to end up playing in South America.
"I want Edinson to play in a team that fights for something important.
"Edinson had many conversations with [Boca vice-president Juan Roman] Riquelme and he would like to play for Boca.

"He was always seduced by the idea of playing in Boca.
"If he returns to South America he is leaning towards Boca."
Luis even went as fair as confirming Cavani would quit United this summer.
He continued: "By the middle of the year he will return to South America.
"My son's idea is not to continue there, he wants to return."
Earlier this week, SunSport revealed Cavani is demanding answers from United regarding his future having only joined on a free from Paris Saint-Germain last summer.
But his dad's latest comments suggest the Uruguay legend will almost certainly be quitting.
Cavani has scored six goals, adding two assists, in 18 Premier League games this season after carving out a role as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's No1 central striker.
But United may be forced to dive into the transfer market to replace him this summer.
Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood have all been mostly utilised in wider roles by Solskjaer this season.
