Metro have excited Manchester United fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern after they claimed that the Red Devils were desperate to see a move for Edinson Cavani go through.
The Paris Saint-Germain forward has been linked with a move to the Premier League for some time now but after United secured a deal for Radamel Falcao on deadline day in the summer – albeit on loan – we certainly thought that Louis van Gaal and his men were done with signings new forwards for now.
Now however, it seems that after becoming more and more concerned over the future of Falcao and indeed his fitness, the club are chasing PSG forward Cavani – and it will cost them.
The sum mentioned for the player is in the region of £50 million and that is a huge amount of cash for any club.
However as our landlord quite rightly notes, it is only a small amount more than what the Red Devils would have to shell out to bring Colombian international Falcao to the Old Trafford permanently.
Manchester United fans. Does your interest in Cavani basically mean that Falcao will only be around at Old Trafford until the end of the 2014/15 season? Let us know your thoughts below.
