City boosted as United target link played down

Published Add your comment

Edinson Cavani is not going to Manchester United, according to the Napoli star’s representative.

Cavani, who is currently being strongly linked with both United and Manchester City, has starred in the Serie A over the last season, and while the Uruguayan international signed a new contract with the Italian outfit in May, both United and City were said to be in a tug of war over making bids for the star.


But Claudio Anellucci, who represents Cavani, singled out the United bid as nothing but transfer speculation, telling Radio Sportiva: “The majority of the time there is nothing to the [rumours], as is the case with regards to a possible move to Manchester United for Edinson.

“This is the time of the year when it is normal to hear talk of transfers to big clubs for astronomical fees.”

Manchester City will no doubt be boosted by the news that United aren’t chasing Cavani, who scored 33 goals in 47 appearances in his debut season in Italy. And should City offer the right price, Napoli may be forced to consider a deal for the star.
