Manchester United In Talks Over Signing Cavani
Manchester United are said to be interested in signing former Paris Saint-Germain forward Edinson Cavani.
The 33-year-old is a free agent after seven years in the French capital and discussions are under way over a possible move to Old Trafford. Sportsfold.com understands that a deal would be for a year with the option for a further 12 months, with the move for Cavani giving Ole Gunnar Solskjaer an alternative option up front. Odion Ighalo, who has been acting as back-up since January, will head back to Shanghai Shenhua in the new year, with the Nigerian having struggled for form and regular minutes since the restart.
The Uruguay international scored 200 goals in 301 games for PSG in the seven years he was there after moving from Napoli back in 2013.
The deal for Cavani is not expected to have any impact on the last-minute transfer business United are trying to complete ahead of Monday evening’s deadline.
