Old Trafford side chase PSG star.
Man United are set to launch a £50m bid for PSG forward Edinson Cavani according to the Metro.
Old Trafford boss Louis van Gaal is apparently desperate to land the 27 year old Parc des Princes star and the Urugyuayan is apparently certain to leave the Paris outfit in the new year.
Though Arsenal and Liverpool are also keen it is Man United who lead the chase for the former Napoli man and any move for Cavani would seemingly lead to an end to their push to bring in loaned in striker Radamel Falcao on a permanent basis.
Cavani moved to PSG in July 2013 and since day one there have been reports about his unhappiness about his usual role out wide, so as to accommodate star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, though this has in no way affected his goal-scoring prowess.
The powerful forward has bagged a healthy tally of 38 goals in 65 appearances for PSG and scored an astonishing 104 goals in three seasons in Naples and is well equipped to do well in the overly physical confines of the Premier League.
