Real Madrid are reportedly considering a move for free agent and former Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani following their goalless draw with Real Sociedad.

Real Madrid are reportedly considering a move for former Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani.

The 33-year-old has been a free agent since leaving PSG at the end of his contract earlier this summer, ending a trophy-laden and record-breaking seven-year spell in the French capital.

Marca reports that Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane is eager to bolster his attacking options, particularly after watching his side begin their title defence with a goalless draw at Real Sociedad.

Karim Benzema was the only member of the attacking quartet over the age 21 in that match, with Martin Odegaard, Rodrygo and Vinicius Junior starting and Marvin Park and Sergio Arribas coming off the bench.

The report claims that Madrid were offered Cavani after that draw and that they are considering moving for the Uruguay international.

Cavani would reportedly demand wages of around €7m (£6.4m) per year, but Madrid are attracted by the fact that he would be available on a free transfer.

Juventus, Atletico Madrid, Roma, Benfica and Gremio are among the other clubs to have been linked with PSG's all-time leading scorer.
