Edinson Cavani wants Manchester United move over Chelsea

Published 1 Comments

Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani wants to join Manchester United this summer - even though the Red Devils are currently without a manager and can no longer qualify for next season’s Champions League campaign.

The 27-year-old, who joined PSG for £53m last July, is ready to snub a move to either Chelsea or Manchester City because United are the club who have shown the most interest in recent months.

According to the Mirror, £60m-rated Cavani has told friends that he wants to join United, even though the reigning Premier League champions have yet to hire a successor for the sacked David Moyes, who was relieved of his duties last week.

A source told the British newspaper: ”Edinson believes he will be a perfect fit in England. He knows that United, Manchester City and Chelsea are all interested and would be happy to talk to any of them. But he also knows United seem the most keen and that is a factor."

It’s also reported that Cavani has fallen out with PSG coach Laurent Blanc, who has often played Cavani out of position this season in order to accommodate star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Cavani feels the Premier League would suit his style, and is unconcerned that Manchester United will spend the next 12 months outside of Europe’s premier club competition after a dreadful campaign under Moyes’ management.

PSG will listen to offers if Cavani makes it clear that he wants to leave the Parc des Princes, despite the fact they would prefer to keep the Uruguay international. UEFA are planning to come down hard on clubs who fall foul of Financial Fair Play regulations, and the oil-rich Parisians are one of the top European teams at risk of punishment, which could pave the way for Cavani’s move to Old Trafford.
