The Red Devils are targeting PSG’s Cavani.
Despite having only moved to Paris Saint-Germain less than 12 months ago Edinson Cavani could be traveling once again as Manchester United line up a transfer, reports the Guardian.
Since the sacking of David Moyes as manager on Tuesday the Premier League champions are keen to show their intentions for the future from the off and a new world-class signing would help do that.
Cavani became PSG’s most expensive ever player upon completing the £52.7m switch from Napoli last summer and whilst life in France started positively, things have dropped off in recent times.
The Uruguay international was playing second fiddle to top-scorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic straight away at the Parc des Princes and has operated for much of the season from the right flank.
Cavani has 22 goals in 39 matches in all competitions for the French champions so far, but has grown disillusioned in Paris and could well be open to a move away.
Both United and their chief executive Ed Woodward are keen to bring in high profile names to show their intentions for the future of the club.
Whilst it may seem that there are already a number of fine strikers at Old Trafford it was said that the team lacked attacking potency under Moyes and Cavani would help to challenge that.
Also Woodward was keen to bring Cristiano Ronaldo back from Real Madrid and whilst that is now nigh on impossible, signing a world-class player is a priority.
