Manchester United & Chelsea suffer setback as PSG make U-turn

Published Add your comment

Paris Saint-Germain will resist interest from the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea for Edinson Cavani, according to Goal.

Reports had suggested that Manchester United were confident of bringing the Uruguayan international to the Premier League in the summer after holding preliminary talks with Laurent Blanc in January.

Former Old Trafford boss Sir Alex Ferguson contacted Blanc to see if his side would be willing to sell Cavani to the Premier League champions during the winter window.

Ferguson was told that Cavani, who joined PSG from Napoli for £55million last summer, would not be allowed to leave the club in January - but that there was a possibility of the Uruguayan international leaving the club at the end of the season.

However Goal believe PSG will reject all offers for Cavani as they see the forward as an integral part of their team.

The 27-year-old has scored 22 goals in 25 games for Blanc’s side - despite the fact that he has played most of his football on the wing in order to accommodate Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

News of PSG's reluctance to sell Cavani will have irked Manchester United boss David Moyes and Chelsea's Portuguese tactician Jose Mourinho, as both managers are looking to sign a world-class forward in the summer.
