Paris Saint-Germain star Edinson Cavani doesn’t want to join Manchester United this summer, as he is keen to continue his Champions League adventures with his current club.
According to the Mail, which relays information from French source L’Equipe, the Uruguayan striker will reject the chance to get on board with Louis van Gaal’s revolution at Old Trafford thanks to his predecessor’s failure to qualify for Europe’s elite competition, and has already held talks with PSG over his position next season. Rumours had implied that the 28-year-old wanted to leave the Parc des Princes as he had become disgruntled at Laurent Blanc’s insistence of preferring Zlatan Ibrahimovic for the lone striker role.
However now it’s thought that the prolific front-man, who only joined the Ligue 1 champions for £55million last summer, is willing to stay on for at least another season, and isn’t going to push for a move to United. This comes after speculation that Cavani was one of Van Gaal’s top targets with the summer transfer window in mind, and further illustrates how the former Premier League champions may have trouble luring the biggest names to Manchester before next term.
The PSG striker joins the likes of Toni Kroos, Thomas Muller and William Carvalho in turning down the notion of being part of the rebuilding process at Old Trafford, and the list of world-class possible additions is beginning to wear rather thin.
