PSG boss plays down Manchester United target's exit

Published 1 Comments

Manchester United have been warned against making a bid for Edinson Cavani this month, after Paris Saint-Germain boss Laurent Blanc said that it's "almost impossible" to take a major player from Parc des Princes in January, reports Sky Sports.

The Uruguayan striker only joined the Ligue 1 champions from Napoli in a £55million deal last summer, and has excelled during his debut season, scoring 17 goals in 24 appearances in all competitions.

Red Devils boss David Moyes has been credited with an interest in bringing Cavani to Old Trafford, but is wasting his time if he wants to negotiate a transfer in the mid-season window.

"You cannot prevent that some club is interested in PSG players, as we are interested in many players," Blanc told a press conference on Friday.

"But today, it is almost impossible to take a major PSG player during the winter market."

Manchester United have been linked with a number of high-profile signings this January, and are understood to be closing in on a £37million move for Chelsea midfielder Juan Mata.

The two Premier League clubs have agreed a fee, and all that is left to be completed is a medical for the Spain international.
