Manchester United are confident of enticing Paris Saint-Germain forward Edinson Cavani to Old Trafford during the summer transfer window.

The Daily Mail claim the Premier League champions have opened talks with last season's Ligue 1 winners in order to have a deal in place that would see Cavani move to Old Trafford before next summer's World Cup.

Paris Saint-Germain would demand a fee in the region of £55million as the French moneybags will want to recoup the £53million they spent on the 26-year-old during the summer.

Reports suggest Manchester United manager David Moyes has asked his predecessor Sir Alex Ferguson to help him secure the signature of Cavani.

Ferguson has close ties with Paris Saint-Germain boss Laurent Blanc, as the Frenchman ended his playing days at Manchester United under the former Old Trafford chief.

Ferguson has already spoken to Blanc about the possibility of Cavani joining Manchester United before the end of the month - however the Red Devils director was told the former Napoli forward would not be leaving Parc des Princes in January.

Moyes is likely to have the funds needed to sign the Uruguayan international in the summer as he has reportedly been handed £150million to spend on new players before the start of next season.
