Manchester United’s hopes of signing striker Edinson Cavani have been handed a huge boost with the news that the Uruguayan is set to hold talks over his PSG future later this week, after growing frustrated with his role at the club.
The Daily Mirror have revealed reports in Italy which claim that Cavani has become frustrated with playing second fiddle to Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the French capital and is said to be harbouring over a switch to England.
According to Sport Italia, the player is set to reaffirm that stance on Tuesday, although it remains to be seen whether or not this will tempt United into tabling a bid, with PSG wanting close to the €64m they paid for Cavani a year ago.
The 27-year-old scored 25 goals in 43 games for PSG last season following his move from Napoli, but often had to play in a wide role, outside of central striker Ibrahimovic, who bagged 41 goals last term.
The Mirror reported in April that both Cavani and team-mate Ezequiel Lavezzi were ready to quit French champions Paris Saint-Germain and cross the Channel, having fallen out with PSG coach Laurent Blanc, and believe the Premier League will suit their styles.
One source said: “Edinson believes he will be a perfect fit in England. He knows that United, Manchester City and Chelsea are all interested and would be happy to talk to any of them. But he also knows United seem the most keen and that is a factor.”
