Manchester United & Chelsea boosted in £54m Cavani chase

Paris Saint-Germain forward Edinson Cavani has revealed that he could be on the move this summer, reports

The striker, who has struck 14 goals in Ligue 1 so far this season, only joined the French giants last summer but could now be on the move in the next window. 

Cavani has also admitted that Chelsea were interested in him, but he's unsure as to whether his agent has met representatives from either of Manchester United or Chelsea. 

A number of Europe's leading clubs have been linked with the Uruguayan superstar in recent time, with reports last month suggesting that Manchester United and Chelsea were set to go head-to-head for his signature.

However, with PSG wanting around £54m for the player's services, it remains to be seen as to whether the likes of United and Chelsea step up in their pursuit of him. 

For now though, his long term future appears uncertain, as he told L'Equipe: "We'll see at the end of the season. We have to finish the season first.

"I am in Paris, but there are certainly things we must talk about with the club, things should be done differently."

"Chelsea were interested. But the only thing that matters in the transfer window is spending money, just like Palermo did in 2009, Napoli in 2011 and PSG did last summer.

"PSG showed real desire and determination to include me in their project. When you see how much they invested in me, it is proof that they really want me.

"I do not know [if my agent met with representatives from United and Chelsea]. If something should happen, it's my brother who will do it and will be at the table with interested parties."

For now though, Cavani and Co. will be concentrating on this week's Champions League round of fixtures.

PSG are set to take on Chelsea on Wednesday night, as both teams look to take a step closer to the semi-finals of the competition, meanwhile Manchester United and European holders Bayern Munich are in action at Old Trafford tonight.
