Manchester United to hold Edinson Cavani transfer talks

Manchester United will hold talks with representatives of Edinson Cavani shortly as they attempt to kickstart a deal for the Uruguayan, according to reports in France.

The Red Devils have already started their summer spending having sealed deals for Ander Herrera and Luke Shaw, with plenty more expected to follow suit. They've been heavily linked with the likes of Arturo Vidal from Juventus and Mats Hummels from Borussia Dortmund as new boss Louis van Gaal looks to spend the £200 million transfer kitty he's been handed by the club's owners.

Striker swoop

Manchester United have been linked with a move for Cavani - who joined PSG from Napoli in a deal worth more than £50 million - for some time now, and it was claimed back in April that talks were held with the player's agent over a possible £60 million switch.

It seems as though a transfer could be back on the agenda, with Le10 Sport claiming that talks have been scheduled between the two parties - although they've been moved back by a few days.


Despite that small hitch the French source maintain that Manchester United are keen on completing a deal for the striker, who appeared unsettled at the Parce des Prince at the tail-end of last season.

One interesting aspect of the story is that Le10 Sport claim that there is a possibility of a swap deal involving Wayne Rooney going ahead. The Manchester United man recently put pen to appears on a huge new £300,000-per-week contract at Old Trafford, so that appears highly unlikely. 


Another potential obstacle in the deal is PSG's apparent reluctance to let the former Napoli man go, although Cavani himself is apparently unwilling to play second fiddle to Zlatan Ibrahimovic for another season.

Other targets

Along with a swoop for Cavani, Manchester United have been linked with a host of players that they hope will help them recover from a disastrous campaign last time round.

Under former boss David Moyes they stumbled to 7th place - their worst Premier League finish. He was replaced before the end of the campaign by Ryan Giggs, and now Van Gaal will take over upon his return from the World Cup later this month.
