Manchester United will not be signing Cavani

Published 2 Comments

Manchester United will not be signing Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani next month after the agent of the Uruguay international quashed speculation that his client would leave the club during the January transfer window.

Cavani moved to the Parce des Princes for a reported €64 million fee in the summer months but has seen his long-term future in Paris cast into doubt given the headline billing afforded to colleague Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Old Trafford has been touted as a potential destination for the 26-year-old as Manchester United manager David Moyes strives to reinforce before the transfer deadline, but Claudio Anellucci has dismissed the assertion.

"There is nothing that is brewing. He remains in Paris," Anelucci told Italian television.

"He's fine. Napoli was a nice chapter, like the one in Palermo, but he goes on always trying to improve as a player and his experience.

"Paris is an important moment for him."

Despite the speculation regarding his future, Cavani has been in fine form since his arrival in France. The former Napoli forward has scored 12 goals in 13 starts in Ligue 1, while he has found the net four times in the Champions League.

Prior to his transfer to PSG, Cavani had scored 104 goals in his 138 appearances for Napoli.
