Man United: High-profile transfer target set to SNUB Red Devils after manager’s PROMISE

Edinson Cavani could yet stay with Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain this season despite reported interest from Manchester United, Mirror Sport reports.

The Red Devils appear to be in the transfer market for a new striker following the departures of Radamel Falcao and Robin van Persie earlier this summer.

With just Wayne Rooney and James Wilson left as the only out-and-out strikers at the club currently, manager Louis van Gaal has been heavily linked with a move for Cavani, who helped PSG clinch the league title in France last season by scoring 18 goals in 35 appearances.

However, according to the Uruguayan international’s agent Walter Guglielmone, the striker is ignoring any speculation over his future and says the player will operate in his favoured centre-forward role next season after often being shifted out to the right-wing to accommodate Zlatan Ibrahimovic:

“This summer Edi has received interest from top clubs who are chasing a centre forward,” Guglielmone said.

“He is ignoring them though because he was given guarantees about his position at the end of last season.

“We have been led to believe that Ibrahimovic will play further and further away from the box in order to touch the ball more, leaving the striker position for Edi to fill, which was the case several times at the end of 2014-15,” he added.
