Manchester United manager David Moyes sent scouts to Paris on Sunday to watch Uruguayan international Edinson Cavani in action, according to the Daily Mail.

The Scotsman is said to be a keen admirer of the former Napoli forward and could make a move for the Paris Saint-Germain star at the end of the season.

Reports had suggested back in January that Sir Alex Ferguson had contacted Laurent Blanc in order to help Manchester United seal a move for Cavani.

However Ferguson was told by former Manchester United defender Blanc that Cavani would not be leaving the club in January.

Moyes did receive some hope in trying to entice Cavani to Old Trafford as Blanc did not rule out the possibility of Cavani leaving the Ligue 1 outfit in the summer.

Cavani, who had been out since the end of January with a thigh injury, managed to hit the back of the net after coming on for the last 20 minutes against Marseille on Sunday.

Paris Saint-Germain would want to recuperate the £56million they forked out on Cavani last summer if Manchester United were to have any chance of signing the 27-year-old.
