Report: Edinson Cavani interested in Manchester United move

Manchester United are claimed to be weighing up a move for Edinson Cavani.

Edinson Cavani is interested in a transfer to Manchester United, claim ESPN.

The report claims Cavani is 'extremely keen' on signing for the Red Devils, and his agents have been in touch with United.

ESPN claim as a result, Manchester United are weighing up making an offer for the Paris Saint-Germain striker.

Cavani is PSG's record signing, and is still just 28-years-old. He has scored 10 goals in 17 Ligue 1 games this season, 14 of which have been starts.

His spell at the club has been mixed despite winning consecutive league titles, as he has often been played out wide to accommodate Zlatan Ibrahmovic.

To walk away from PSG mid-season would be a big commitment, as he would be turning his back on an almost certain league medal, and the Champions League knockout rounds.

Cavani turns 29 next month, and signing him would fit in with CEO Ed Woodward's transfer strategy of spending big money on top talents, even though this has yielded mixed results.
