£54million Chelsea and United target believes he is perfect & is happy to talk

According to reports, Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani could open up the door to a move to either Chelsea or Manchester United.

Earlier in the month, it was reported PSG duo Edinson Cavani and Ezequiel Lavezzi were ready to quit the Parisians in order to move to another high-profile club in Europe with Chelsea named as a possible destination.

In fresh reports, despite netting his 23rd goal of the season at the weekend, Cavani has told friends that he is ready to move on in the summer.

One source told the Mirror: 'Edinson believes he will be a perfect fit in England. He knows that [Manchester] United, Manchester City and Chelsea are all interested and would be happy to talk to any of them. But he also knows United seem the most keen and that is a factor'

The report later goes on to say: 'The 27-year-old is not concerned about the Reds' probable lack of any European football next term, having convinced himself that it is a one-off situation and that a rejuvenated United will be back in the European elite in 12-months time.'

Nevertheless, if Jose Mourinho can earn himself a place at the table with Cavani's agents, hopefully with the Champions League trophy in hand, would the Uruguayan really turn down the chance to move to Stamford Bridge safe in the knowledge he would be first-choice? I highly doubt it.

Not to mention the fact Manchester United are currently without a manager and with Louis van Gaal reported as the favourite for the job, it wouldn't surprise me if Robin Van Persie was the starting number 9 next term. In fact, I would be surprised if he wasn't.

Therefore, I can see the Dutch coach, or whoever gets the job, focusing more on problematic midfield and defence before looking to bring strikers into the club, a position where they are fairly well equipped.
