Barcelona are planning a cash plus player offer for Manchester United transfer target Edinson Cavani, according to French newspaper Le 10 Sport.

That Barcelona player is reportedly Chilean winger Alexis Sanchez, although Paris St Germain only have eyes for one Nou Camp star - Leo Messi.

The Catalan giants have entered the race for the £56m-rated Cavani, with the La Liga giants on the look out for a big-money capture this summer.

But Cavani, who is set to feature for Uruguay at the World Cup this summer, is also a summer target for Manchester United and Chelsea.

Spanish newspaper AS reports that Barca are willing to include Sanchez as part of a sizeable transfer package in an effort to convince the Ligue 1 leaders to part with the former-Napoli star.

Cavani has enjoyed an impressive first season in Paris, with 14 goals in 17 Ligue 1 starts, but he's reportedly unhappy playing second fiddle to Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Chelsea and United have been tipped to test his willingness to cut ties with PSG at the end of the season, with United in particular desperate for a big-move to spark David Moyes's reign into life.

The first-year Old Trafford boss has United struggling to qualify for the Champions League next season, but he's been promised a significant transfer budget for the summer.

Sanchez is currently Barca's top La Liga scorer with 16 goals in 19 starts so far this term.
