Manchester United can still entertain hopes of signing 27-year old PSG striker Edinson Cavani as the Uruguayan failed to rule out the prospect of him leaving the Parc Des Princes this summer.
The former Napoli man is believed to be unsettled in Paris after being played out wide by his manager Laurent Blanc last season, and is also reportedly angling for a move out of Ligue-1 just a year after making a massive £55 million switch to PSG.
Cavani was asked whether he might leave France this summer, and told the Daily Star:
“In football you never know. Anything can happen.
“One day you’re in one team and they next day you can be in another.”
Even if Cavani were to be available for a transfer this summer, the Red Devils would not have it easy to land him despite their reported £200 million transfer warchest, as several other top clubs could lure the striker away with the promise of UEFA Champions League football next season.
Cavani may also be understandably concerned about the number of strikers already present in the United squad, and would be reluctant to accede to the idea of playing second fiddle to Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney.
Cavani has played a key role for Uruguay at this summer’s 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
