Manchester United are looking for goals and, therefore, are seriously considering a January move for PSG striker Edison Cavani.
ESPN FC cites reliable sources and claims that the Red Devils are genuinely interested in bringing the 28-year-old striker to Old Trafford. The Uruguayan international’s representatives have supposedly initiated the contract with Man Utd and have informed them of the player’s wish to move to the Premier League.
Louis Van Gaal’s side has struggled to score goals this season and, despite Wayne Rooney’s return to form, they are in search for a striker in the transfer market.
Cavani is said to be unhappy with his current situation at the Paris club as he has been consistently played out of position by manager Laurent Blanc. The PSG boss recently admitted that Cavani is causing a problem at the club with his behaviour and could be allowed to leave in the future.
Cavani arrived at PSG from Napoli in 2013 for a transfer fee believed to be around £45 million. He has scored 69 goals in 120 games for the Ligue 1 club.
