Manchester United are set to use misfit midfielder Nani as bait in their bid to sign £50 million rated striker Edinson Cavani this summer, according to the Daily Star.
United have been heavily linked with a move for the 27-year-old PSG star since the start of the year, and are now set to use their Portuguese winger Nani to finalise a deal.
Nani has been on the fringes of David Moyes' side this season and has made only nine league appearances.
It has also been reported that the agent of the Portuguese international has said it is likely the player will leave Old Trafford this summer.
Cavani, who only joined PSG from Italian side Napoli last July, has also been targeted by United's Premier League rivals Manchester City and Chelsea, but Moyes will be hoping their inclusion of the natural winger Nani - plus a significant cash offer - will force a deal through ahead of the chasing pack.
The Uruguay international has scored 15 league goals in 26 appearances so far this campaign, despite often being used out of position to allow fellow forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic to occupy the lone striker role.
Despite PSG chief Nasser Al-Khelaifi having previously issued a hands-off warning in regards to Cavani, Moyes will be hopeful that he can persuade the prolific striker to join fellow front-men Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie at United ahead of the 2014/15 campaign.
