Juventus have paved the way for Manchester United to sign Edinson Cavani after the Italian giants admitted the PSG star was “not a realistic target”.

The Uruguayan international has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford in recent months and the speculation will now grow even stronger after the Serie A champions pull out of the running to sign the former Napoli star.
Juventus sporting director Giuseppe Marotta said the club would put all of its efforts into snaring Palermo youngster Paulo Dybala.
“We met several times with Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini for Dybala. We’re down to the details and hope to conclude the deal soon,” Marotta is quoted as saying by Metro.
“Cavani, however, is not a realistic target.”
Cavani has scored 29 goals in all competitions this season as PSG claimed its fifth Ligue 1 title this season, and there’s no doubt the 28-year-old would add plenty in attack for Louis van Gaal’s side.
Both Robin van Persie and Radamel Falcao were disappointing for the Red Devils this season and the goalscoring prowess of Cavani could help United challenge for the title next term.
