With Manchester United seemingly lacking firepower up front it was only a matter of time before Edinson Cavani’s name was thrown into the transfer mix. Only yesterday did certain reports link Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang with Old Trafford, but French newspaper L’Equipe are now making suggestions concerning Cavani. It’s said PSG won’t sell him to United unless they find a top-class replacement. Presumably, if they do, Louis van Gaal will have a chance to land the Uruguayan. It’s mostly loose speculation at the moment though. Next up, Sir Alex Ferguson has backed Gary Neville to succeed after taking the vacant manager’s post at Valencia. Neville reportedly turned down a lucrative deal from Sky Sports to move to Spain - Fergie thinks he could become a Mestalla Messiah.
