Edinson Cavani rejects Manchester United move

Published Add your comment

Manchester United's proposed move for Edinson Cavani has hit a major snag as the Paris Saint-Germain striker has privately ruled out a move to Old Trafford.

The Red Devils were reportedly preparing a £80million move for the Uruguayan international in hope that the 27-year-old would fire Manchester United back to glory.

Cavani was thought to be keen on sealing a move to Manchester United as he has become disillusioned with life at Paris Saint-Germain - due to the fact that he has had to play much of his football on the wing.

However a source close to Cavani has told the Daily Star that the former Napoli forward is not keen on a move to Manchester United due to their poor form this season.

"He is well aware of United's interest in him and at one stage this might have seemed like an attractive proposal," said the source.

"But the fact is Manchester United can no longer offer him the standard of football he wants or thinks he deserves.

"The club is going through huge changes and he doesn't feel the time is right to even consider going to Old Trafford."

Manchester United manager Moyes was reportedly weighing up a £280,000-a-week offer to entice Cavani away from the Parc des Princes.

However Moyes will have to use his £200million transfer war-chest elsewhere, as Cavani has rejected the chance of joining the Premier League champions at the end of the season.
