Manchester United are leading the race to sign Paris Saint-Germain forward Edinson Cavani, according to the Daily Mail.

Cavani is said to be growing disillusioned with life at the Ligue 1 outfit as he has been forced to play on the wings in order for Laurent Blanc to accommodate Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The 26-year-old was linked with a move to Manchester United in January - with reports suggesting former Red Devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson had contacted Blanc in hope that he could convince PSG into selling Cavani.

However Manchester United were told that Cavani would not be available until the summer and would only be allowed to leave for a fee in the region of £54million.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is also said to be keen on bringing the Uruguayan international to the Premier League as he is desperate to bolster his striking options in the summer.

However the Blues are currently losing the race to sign Cavani - despite Manchester United's poor form this season and the fact that they may not be playing in the Champions League next season.
