Manchester United boosted in race for £54m Chelsea target

Published Add your comment

Manchester United could make a bid for Edinson Cavani this summer after it emerged that the Uruguayan striker is unhappy at Paris Saint-Germain, according to the Daily Mail.

Sources at PSG claim that Cavani is particularly unhappy with coach Laurent Blanc, who has often deployed him in a wide position this season, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic leading the line for the reigning Ligue 1 champions instead.

It's reported that PSG will allow the 26-year-old to leave the club, despite Blanc attempting to keep the peace, and Manchester United are expected to be at the front of the queue.

But the Red Devils have no chance of signing the South American this month, with PSG determined to keep him ahead of the Champions League knockout stages.

The oil-rich Parisians spent £54m to bring Cavani, who has also been linked with Chelsea in recent months, to the Parc des Princes from Napoli last summer.

With 19 goals in 27 matches, Cavani has proven his quality in France, but a high-profile move to Manchester United is likely to tempt the natural goalscorer at the end of the current campaign.
