Premier League giants Manchester United have made a £56million bid for Paris Saint-Germain forward Edinson Cavani, according to Daily Mail.
With Louis Van Gaal set to take charge for the Old Trafford outfit this summer, Manchester United are set to see a much changed line-up with several changes in the squad.
With the transfer of David Luiz from Chelsea for £40million, PSG now have to sell some key players of their squad in order to comply with the Financial Fairplay Regulations before making any further additions.
Uruguayan striker Edinson Cavani arrived at Paris last summer for a fee of £55million after three successful seasons at Napoli,but is now unhappy at the prospect of playing second fiddle to Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Laurent Blanc has preferred the Swedish goal-machine to be his primary striker, playing Cavani out of position several times in 2013-14 season to accommodate both Cavani and Ibrahimovic in the starting line-up.
However, the 27-year old still managed to score 25 goals in 43 appearances for the club and several Premier League clubs are monitoring the Uruguayan’s situation at Parc des Princes.
Manchester City,Chelsea are some of the clubs interested in Cavani and with a huge bid from Manchester United,PSG might want to hold negotiations in order the deal to go through.
The fact that Manchester United are not part of Champions League football next season might be a drawback if they want to lure some quality players at Old Trafford. Cavani still favours a move to a club which would be competing in European competitions and it remains to be seen if the Uruguayan will agree the move to the Red Devils once PSG accept the bid.
Edinson Cavani will be leading the attack for Uruguay in the absence of Luis Suarez in the World Cup in Brazil which would give him the perfect platform to showcase his talent and interested clubs to consider bidding for the talisman striker.
