Paris Saint Germain would seriously consider a €50m bid for Manchester United and Chelsea transfer target Edinson Cavani.

That's according to French newspaper Le 10 Sport, who report that Paris Saint Germain are currently handicapped by Financial Fair Player and would consider offloading Cavani, who has not settled into life in Paris.

Formation issue

The Uruguayan international wants to play through the middle as part of a 4-4-2 alongside Zlatan Ibrahimovic, but PSG boss Laurent Blanc is sticking to his 4-3-3 with Cavani on the flank.

The former-Napoli star was heavily linked with a move to the Premier League over the summer as Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United were all said to be monitoring the situation.

The €63m summer signing from Napoli would be keen on a move to England, but seeing as Manchester United signed another Ligue 1 hot-shot, Monaco's Radamel Falcao, on a loan deal until the end of the season, it looks like Chelsea or City would be the realistic destinations.

Both Premier League clubs have the cash to spend, with Chelsea in particular doing a good job of negotiating FFP through player sales. They offloaded the likes of David Luiz and Romelu Lukaku over the summer for big money, allowing them to bring in Diego Costa among others.

PSG to sell?

Paris Saint Germain meanwhile, are not in a strong financial position. They, along with City, were punished under UEFA's guidelines and they used the majority of their budget on Chelsea's Luiz.

That means they may be forced to sell before they can buy in the January transfer window, and Cavani, who doesn't exactly look like he wants to be there, could be among the first to go.
