Manchester United fans will have cause for optimism this morning, as it’s claimed that Paris Saint-Germain star, and one of David Moyes’ primary targets for the summer window, is looking to move clubs.
According to the Metro, Fifa agent and close friend of £53million man Edinson Cavani, Francois Gallardo, has told how the Uruguayan striker is unhappy at the Parc des Princes and wants to leave this summer.
The notion will undoubtedly be music to the ears of Moyes and United, as the reigning Premier League champions have been heavily tipped to make a move for the 27-year-old in the next transfer window
If Gallardo’s comments are true, it would indicate that the Red Devils stand a good chance of acquiring their man, albeit for a hefty figure, as he’s disgruntled in France.
Gallardo said: “There is a player of the squad at PSG who is not comfortable and wants to leave called Cavani.
“If clubs want to sign him – it would soon be time to make a move.”
And United may well make a move at the next available opportunity, as they’re widely expected to revamp the squad in the summer. It’s thought Moyes could be afforded as much as £150million with which to transform his side’s fortunes and, with Cavani costing only around a third of that sum, a transfer isn’t beyond the realms of possibility.
