Manchester United fans are looking stunned here in the Football Transfer Tavern as Metro claim the Red Devils are not only set to ditch Radamel Falcao in the summer but that they are ready to buy another world class forward.
Louis van Gaal is reportedly ready to sanction a £50 million bid for Edinson Cavani who would jump at the chance to leave Paris Saint-Germain and prove himself in the Premier League.
After the injury issues suffered by on-loan star Falcao, we cannot really blame United for wanting to explore other options.
Whilst we note that £50 million is a huge amount of money, it cannot be ignored that Falcao would cost a similar amount and as of yet, he has not proven himself in terms of goals or fitness.
Given the lack of consistent form displayed by Robin van Persie thus far this season, we think a move for Cavani could well give the Red Devils attack a different dimension.
Even if United were to miss out on the top four this term, they would probably still be able to land Cavani given the Uruguayan’s desperation to seal a move away from the Parc Des Princes.
Manchester United fans. Would you endorse a summer swoop for Cavani or would you prefer the cub persevere with a permanent deal for current loan star Falcao? Let us know your thoughts below.
