Manchester United supporting punters here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are looking at the news from the Manchester Evening News (via French publication L’Equipe) – with the publication suggesting that the Red Devils are in initial ‘talks’ with Paris Saint Germain regarding striker Edinson Cavani.
The 28-year-old has more often than not been in the shadow of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and it seems that Louis van Gaal is keen on luring the talented forward to Old Trafford.
Our landlord here inside the Transfer Tavern cannot envisage seeing the Uruguayan striker at Manchester United anytime soon, and feels that United will end up pursuing other, more attainable strikers.
Our resident United fans enjoying a pie and pint here in the Tavern are deliberating this news, and they all feel that the striker would be a sensational purchase, as he has all the credentials to become a top Premier League striker.
Manchester United are seriously struggling to score goals at the minute, so it is essential Van Gaal bolsters his attacking force in January, if they are to mount a serious challenge for the Premier League title.
Manchester United fans…… What do you make of this news? Would you like to see Cavani at Old Trafford? Can you imagine him there? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
