Manchester United to sign Cavani in cut-price deal?

Published 2 Comments

Manchester United are ready to sign Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani in a bargain £25million deal this summer, according to the London Metro.

The Uruguay international only moved to Parc des Princes from Napoli in the summer, for a whopping £54million fee.

However, with Cavani believed to be unhappy in the French capital, PSG manager Laurent Blanc is ready to sanction his cut-price sale at the end of the season.

Red Devils boss David Moyes has asked to be kept in the loop of the situation, as he attempts to lure the 26-year-old to Old Trafford, and could even try to bring the price down further by throwing Shinji Kagawa in as part of the deal.

Cavani was signed with a view to partnering Zlatan Ibrahimovic in PSG's attack, but the pair have failed to strike up a partnership, forcing the summer signing out wide.

The South American has still scored 19 goals in 27 matches in all competitions this season, so in that sense he's proved to be a success, but taking into account the fact he's unsettled in France, it could prove a short-term love affair in Ligue 1.
