Old Trafford side look to bring in South-American.
The 28-year-old is said to be the subject of talks between the two clubs and the former Napoli man will continue to push for a deal to be done.
Louis van Gaal is short of striking options following the sale of Robin van Persie to Fenerbahce and Cavani is known to be a £60m target.
Man United have already done some great business this summer with van Gaal completing the signings of Memphis Depay, Matteo Darmian, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Morgan Schneiderlin.
Despite being primarily used in a wide-attacking role, that doesn’t best suit Cavani, the powerful Parc des Princes marksman still managed to rack up 56 goals over the past two campaigns in the French capital.
Cavani bagged 104 goals in three seasons in Naples before moving to PSG and has the physical presence to make a real impact in the Premier League.
