Manchester United could bring the best out of Edinson Cavani

Uruguay hitman Edinson Cavani has been one of the most talked about players during this summer’s transfer window, with his departure from French champions Paris Saint-Germain seeming closer every day.

The 27-year-old has been linked with a number of clubs, none more so than Louis van Gaal’s Manchester United. Just a year ago, PSG agreed to pay Napoli a near £57million to capture Cavani, and it is believed that only an offer of around the same fee will be enough to see him leave the French capital.

Cavani set for a transfer?

With Cavani struggling to live up to his hefty price tag last year, it is no surprise to see clubs put off by this tremendous fee. On top of this comes his wage demand’s which will reportedly stand at around £160,000-a-week; the amount he is currently earning at PSG.

On the face of it, the £57million plus another £8million in wages seems simply too much for Cavani, however it could prove a risk worth taking.

Despite his below average performance in France, Cavani still managed 16 goals in 30 games, a statistic that is very impressive when you consider how was operated in the team. With Zlatan Ibrahimovic finding the best form of his career, Cavani was played out of position, operating from the wing rather than down the middle, to incorporate him in the starting line-up.

Also, Ligue 1 football is very different to what he was used to in Italy. Even the world’s best players find it difficult to adapt to new challenges which is possibly the case in his instance.

Ultimately, Cavani will always have the important striker’s instinct that is so often talked about, and in the right team he could well find his best form and become of the deadliest strikers in world football once again.
