Check out all the latest Manchester United transfer news and gossip from today.

Edinson Cavani has an offer to join Manchester United this summer but is worried about playing second fiddle to Robin van Persie - not the fact the Premier League giants won't meet his £300,000-a-week wage demands. (Daily Express)

Recent reports have suggested the Red Devils have approached the Paris Saint-Germain striker to sound out his interest in moving to Old Trafford, though the 27-year-old still has some reservations given Van Persie's favourable position in the eyes of new manager Louis van Gaal.

The Uruguay international wants to be undisputed first-choice at his next club having endured a frustrating campaign at Parc des Princes where he was back-up to Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and is looking for guaranteed first-team football next season.

Thomas Vermaelen update

Meanwhile, Arsenal captain Thomas Vermaelen has rejected claims he is keen to pursue a transfer to Manchester United. (

Van Gaal has been heavily linked with a move for the Belgian defender - who has just 12 months remaining on his contract at the Emirates Stadium - but the Gunners skipper insists there is no truth in claims he's poised for a £12 million switch.

Gonzalo Higuain

Manchester United have also been boosted by the news that Napoli have a replacement lined up for Argentina international Gonzalo Higuain. (Daily Express)

The player in question is Chile international Eduardo Vargas, who already belongs to the Serie A outfit, but has spent most of the last two years away from the Stadio San Paolo.

Sami Khedira

Manchester United face competition to sign Real Madrid midfielder Sami Khedira after Liverpool lodged a £15 million bid for the Germany international. (Daily Star)

Khedira missed most of the 2013/14 campaign with a cruciate ligament injury, but is attracting widespread Premier League interest following an impressive return to action.

Possible outgoings

The Red Devils might look to cash-in on the player this summer with only one year left on his current deal and the possibility of moving to Anfield would likely appeal to the 28-year-old.
