Manchester United still keen on Edinson Cavani

Manchester United have sounded out Edinson Cavani's interest in a transfer this summer following the appointment of Louis Van Gaal.

The Daily Mail reports that United are already well advanced with several deals this summer, as they look to avoid a repeat of the fiasco of last season. On that occasion, the managerial handover led to a botched transfer window with Marouane Fellaini only signed on deadline day.

Already United have opened talks with Southampton over a deal for teenage full-back Luke Shaw, while an "agreement" has reportedly been reached to bring Toni Kroos over from Bayern Munich.

Louis Van Gaal wants to focus on midfield and defence, especially with Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand departing this summer.

But the opportunity to sign the €64m-rated (£51m) Edinson Cavani could be too good to pass up, and the report claims United officials have again sounded out his interest.

Reports last season claimed the Uruguayan was unsettled at the Parc des Princes, and was unhappy at playing second fiddle to Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Competition for places up front at Old Trafford is intense, with Robin van Persie favourite to be made captain under Van Gaal, and Rooney a big part of the club's future having agreed a new five year contract.

The odd man out could be Javier Hernandez and the Mexican international hinted that he may have to leave Old Trafford for first-team football earlier this week.
