Edinson Cavani not close to Manchester United transfer

Published 3 Comments

Manchester United have been linked with a move for Edinson Cavani for some time now, but suggestions that he is on his way to Old Trafford seem wide of the mark.

The latest batch of reports suggested that they could be close to a move for Edinson Cavani - something that was seemingly prompted by his mysterious absence from PSG's pre-season training camp in Hong Kong.

However the striker has posted a picture on Instagram confirming that he's on his way to hook up with his team-mates.

Despite that, Cavani's quotes earlier on in the summer will mean he is continued to be linked with a move away from the Parc des Prince, when he admitted during the World Cup that he didn't know where he would be playing next season.

"I feel good at Paris and I count on staying, but considering how this window has gone thus far, nobody really knows," the 27-year-old said. "The idea was for me to stay in Paris and the owner of the club thinks the same."

However the fact that he is now on his way to hook up with his PSG team-mates could well mean the end of Manchester United's pursuit.
