Cavani once again linked with Man Utd move

by Richard Laverty

Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani is once being linked with a big money move this summer and Manchester United could renew their interest in the striker.

Rumours of a move for Cavani first came to light when David Moyes was manager as the club looked to bring in a new striker with Danny Welbeck and Javier Hernandez on their way out.

Uruguayan journalist Valentin Fletcher believes Cavani could make the move to ‘England or Spain’ in the summer and if United’s interest was genuine, it is sure to put them on red alert.

Whilst there is no chance of the Uruguay international leaving this month, Fletcher doesn’t rule out Cavani finally making the move away from France in the summer.

“For the time being, Cavani will not leave PSG until the end of the season, as his agent confirmed,” he said.

“The winter camp? Like [Ezequiel] Lavezzi, he was given permission to miss it by the club. He wants to win the Champions League with PSG [this season]. His future? This winter he will remain in Paris, but at the end of the season there is a strong chance he will go somewhere else, in particular to England or Spain.”

Any move for Cavani would end before it even begun should United take up their option to secure Radamel Falcao on a permanent basis.

Despite initial fitness concerns, Falcao has had regular game time over Christmas and has scored two goals over that period, adding to his winner against Everton in October.

On top of that, Cavani would mean an outlay of an extra £20m compared to the £42m fee the club would have to pay for the Colombian striker.
