Uruguay attacker’s agents travel to London for face-to-face discussions about the sale of their client. 

Premier League powerhouses Chelsea and Manchester United are set to go head to head at the end of the season in the battle to land in-demand Paris Saint-Germain front man Edinson Cavani, according to exclusive reports in the Daily Mail.

The prolific Uruguay international may have only been with the Ligue 1 champions now since the beginning of this campaign, with Cavani signing for the mega-rich Parisians from Serie A outfit Napoli last July for a whopping £54m.

However, it is understood that the striker has already grown disillusioned with life in the French capital, where the 26-year-old has been asked to play in an unfamiliar position out wide by head coach Laurent Blanc in order to accommodate skipper Zlatan Ibrahimovic through the middle.

As a result, despite the player having found the back of the net on an impressive 20 occasions in total in just 30 matches in all competitions so far for PSG this season, Cavani’s representatives have still flown to London this week to enter into negotiations with interested suitors in their client.

And those parties are believed to include Chelsea, United and Arsenal, although all three Premier League sides know that they will need to break the bank this summer to be able to land the goal machine.
