Paris Saint-Germain are ready to replace forwards Edinson Cavani and Ezequiel Lavezzi with Manchester United winger Angel di Maria, according to the Daily Star.
The report has revealed that the French based outfit, who have endured a tricky season under boss Laurent Blanc, are now ready to make the Argentine superstar their No.1 transfer priority after missing out on his signature last summer.
The 26-year-old completed a monster £59.9 million move to Old Trafford this past summer, but has endured an indifferent debut season with the club. Despite enjoying a strong start to English life, Di Maria has struggled with fitness in recent time, which has ultimately kept him out of a number of matches throughout the course of the season.
It appears, then, that his stint in England could be over sooner rather than later, if Blanc and Co. get their way.
It's not known, however, as to whether the Manchester United hierarchy would be prepared to cash in on their No.7 at such an early stage, with the club seemingly desperate for him to achieve great things in the Premier League.

There's no doubt about it, it would certainly prove a bizarre move on United's part if they were to accept any future bid from PSG, but stranger things have happened in football.
For now, though, Di Maria and Co. will be concentrating on getting back to winning ways after last weekend's disappointing result. Manchester United's recent unbeaten run came to an end on home soil on Sunday, and they will be desperate to bounce back in their upcoming fixture.
The Red Devils travel to Loftus Road to take on struggling QPR on Saturday, but it remains to be seen as to whether Di Maria will be handed a starting role.
Di Maria, who started his first game after a long injury layoff in United's defeat against the Saints, struggled to make any kind of impact in the game and proved to be off the pace.
He was ultimately substituted late on, but will now be determined to respond in style against Harry Redknapp's side this weekend.
