Cavani has been praised for his impact at Old Trafford and proved to be a valuable addition to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's squad options.
The ex-PSG star, whose contract will expire in the summer, has scored seven times and registered two assists in 25 appearances across all competitions this season.
However, Cavani's father made a bombshell admission that his son "does not feel comfortable" in England and "wants to be closer to his family."
Luis Cavani told TyC Sports: "We are very anxious. We have always been to visit him, he has been in very beautiful places where people have received him very well.
"He has made himself loved, he has made many friends, but today he does not feel comfortable where he is.
"He has been thinking for more than two years that he wants to be closer to his family and that is the reason why I think Edi is going to end up playing for a team from here in South America."
The United striker has now taken to Instagram and posted a photo of him celebrating with his hand on his chest.
Cavani accompanied the photo with a caption: "Proud to wear this shirt."
According to Luis, the Uruguay international hinted that there could be a "60 per cent chance that Edinson will come to South America."
Cavani's father added that his son could sign for Boca Juniors in Argentina should he leave Old Trafford at the end of the season.
"I know that he would like to play and be close to his country, so that we could be closer to him," he said.
