Premier League giants Manchester United and Chelsea have been handed an unexpected boost in the race for Paris Saint-Germain forward Edinson Cavani, as it has been revealed that Arsene Wenger has no interest in signing him.


Speculation that the Uruguayan hit-man would make a move to the Emirates Stadium at some point in the near future has been rife since this summer, with the acquisition of a world-class forward though to be high on Wenger’s list of priorities. Now though, according to French newspaper Le 10 Sport, citing journalist Pierre Menes.

Menes's comments

Menes claims he has spoken with Wenger on the topic, and believes that the 64-year-old has no interest in buying Cavani, who has a price tag of £55million.

"I spent three hours with Arsene Wenger and I can tell you he is not interested. This field is only about him, nothing more," Menes told Telefoot.

Cavani's future

Despite only having moved to the Parc des Princes last summer from Napoli, Cavani has failed to settle properly in Ligue 1, and Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s presence has seen him forced to play out of position for the majority of his tenure there.

As such he’s thought to be unhappy enough to leave if a suitable opportunity arises, with Financial Fair Play rules serving to further make his position unstable. PSG have to sell players to raise the cash for business endeavours of their own, and so Laurent Blanc may well try to sell Cavani to either United or Chelsea in the forthcoming transfer windows.
