Manchester United transfer news: Red Devils free to talk business as Superstar tells PSG he wants summer exit
Manchester United transfer target Edinson Cavani has informed Paris Saint-Germain that we wants to leave.
Cavani has been in the headlines over the past few months AS REPORTS HAVE CLAIMED THAT CHELSEA ARE INTERESTED IN A DEAL, as they seek to add a bit more firepower to their very young attack, especially after news broke that he handed in a transfer request.
The Red Devils are desperate to sign a striker following the sale of Romelu Lukaku in lasts summers transfer window, but may not have the kind of transfer budget it would take to land one of the biggest and best striker sin the game right now.
But they may be able to offer Cavani a move to the Premier League in the summer, as he is destined to leave PSG and the Premier League is a challenge that he may feel like taking, even at this stage on his footballing career.
Now the AS website has claimed the 33-year old striker has no intention of signing a new contract at PSG and has informed the club that he wants to leave the club, leaving him free to discuss personal terms with teams outside of France.
Former hitman Robin Van Persie has come out and recently urged United to make a move and offer Cavani a chance to prove himself at Old Trafford, claiming that he will still be able to land the club around 25-goals a season, He told Sport Bible: “Edinson Cavani. I would definitely go for Cavani.
“He’s very fit, he’s a proven goalscorer, a goal machine, he has proven it at Napoli, PSG and Uruguay. With him, if he starts, he will get you 25 goals a season.
“I’ve watched him play, I’ve played against him, he is like a proper goalscorer. He lives by scoring goals so I’d go for him.”
Look, United certainly need to add some more fire-power to the side, and signing Cavani would mean that Marcus Rashford would be able to learn from one of the best in the world. But United need more of a long-term striker than one that has a few years left at the top.
Why don’t United buy a striker that is already proven in the Premier League, someone that will not need time to adjust to the English game? We have some of the best in the world and the Red Devils need to stop looking abroad for answers to solve their problems.
