Manchester United £54m target has "physical & personal problems"

Manchester United and Chelsea could both yet land Edinson Cavani this summer, as yet more rumours have surfaced claiming that he is far from content at Paris Saint-Germain.

Earlier this week it emerged that the Uruguayan may want a move to the Premier League as he’s unhappy with being forced out on the wing at the Parc des Princes to accommodate Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Now French newspaper Le 10 Sport, relaying quotes from Canal+ consultant, and former France international, Éric Carrière, claims that the striker is struggling both mentally and physically with PSG.

“There has been physical and personal problems since the beginning of the calendar year. But it is not up to what is expected of him. Ibrahimovic, even when he is not good, can affect opposing teams by his mere physical presence. This is not the case with Cavani," Carrière said.

Of course any potential move away from Laurent Blanc’s side will most probably hinge on whether or not any suitors would be willing to stump up the massive transfer fee needed to convince his club to sell. Having only joined from Napoli at the start of this season for around £54million, it’s believed it will take upwards of £55million to lure him away.

In recent days both United and Chelsea have been named in connection with differing offers, but it remains to be seen whether either David Moyes or Jose Mourinho will back up their interest with concrete proposals.
