Louis van Gaal has long been tipped to move for Cavani this summer as he looks to bolster PSG’s offensive options.
Radamel Falcao has been a flop at Old Trafford since moving on loan from AS Monaco and is unlikely to stay at the club when his loan expires this summer.
Similarly, Javier Hernandez is likely to depart United permanently this summer, while Robin van Persie has also been linked with the exit door.
Former Napoli forward Cavani had been named as a potential option for the Red Devils, but while United have cooled on the transfer, another European heavyweight is increasing their interest in the hitman.
According to Le 10 Sport, Valenica—newly-enriched by Singaporean owner Peter Lim—have made the player one of their key transfer targets as they look to renovate their squad.
Cavani is seen by the new owner as the kind of marquee signing that would demonstrate Valencia’s ambition.
