With over 30 total goals scored in four of the last five years, Edinson Cavani is just the scoring threat Man United need. Will they hand over Angel Di Maria to land him?
Paris Saint-Germain are targeting a major signing from Man United, but it could result in a big scoring threat from France moving to Old Trafford.
According to the Express, the Ligue 1 club has a strong interest in Man United’s expensive flop Angel Di Maria. But in order to avoid sanctions from the UEFA, PSG is willing to make a player swap and hand over star striker Edinson Cavani in a straight swap. The Express reported that Man United manager Louis van Gaal has interest in Cavani and has a degree of buyer’s remorse over the £59.7 million signing of Di Maria last summer.
The 28-year-old Cavani has recorded double-digit league goals in each of the last seven seasons and has scored 25 or more total goals in each of the last five. Cavani led Serie A in scoring during the 2012-13 season after he set a career-high with 29 league goals. With a €64.5 million price tag, it would be a fairly even value swap for Di Maria assuming the French club can get something out of him that Louis van Gaal couldn’t last season.
