Manchester United and Chelsea will need to pay an astonishing €100m fee in order to bring Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani to the Premier League this summer, according to Sky Italia journalist Gianluca di Marzio.

Representatives of the 26-year-old were reportedly in London earlier this week to discuss the possibility of their client moving to an English club.

However, Ligue 1 champions PSG are reluctant to sell the Uruguay international, who joined the Parisians in a £54m deal from Napoli last summer.

The oil-rich French outfit would only consider selling the striker if they received an offer of €100m - the same price Real Madrid paid Tottenham for Gareth Bale last September.

Cavani is believed to be unhappy at the Parc des Princes after being played out of position by manager Laurent Blanc.

With Zlatan Ibrahimovic leading the line, Cavani has often been deployed on the right flank, where he feels he is less effective.

Despite this, Cavani has still managed to score 20 goals in 29 matches for PSG this season, and it seems United and Chelsea would both love to make the prolific South American hitman their main striker ahead of the 2014/15 campaign.
