Our resident Manchester United supporting punters here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are shocked at the news filtering in from Italian outlet TMW – with the publication claiming that United are preparing a surprise swap deal that would see Anthony Martial depart, and PSG’s Edinson Cavani arrive at Old Trafford.
Cavani’s name has long been bandied around the Transfer Tavern, though a deal involving the Uruguayan striker has never seemed to materialise and he has never joined the Premier League.
The 29-year-old striker is one of the world’s most clinical strikers, but he has often been overshadowed by Zlatan Ibrahimovic this season and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see the 6ft forward depart the Ligue 1 outfit.
Our resident Man United fans admit they would love to see Cavani at Old Trafford one day, but say it would be a travesty for the Red Devils to lose French striker Anthony Martial, as it is evident the player has the potential to become one of the world’s best strikers.
Our landlord over by the bar feels that this would be a ridiculous swap deal for Man United, as the club forked out a ludicrous amount of money to buy the 20-year-old!
Manchester United fans…… What do you make of this news? Would you like to see Cavani arrive at Old Trafford, and Martial depart? Let us know your thoughts below!
