90 min report that Manchester United are eyeing a potential move for Paris Saint-Germain forward Edinson Cavani in January.
Is this the worst Manchester United team in the Premier League era?
The Red Devils have struggled this term, winning only two of their opening eight league matches, largely due to their lack of firepower up front.
Indeed, the club’s top scorers are currently Marcus Rashford and Daniel James – both of whom have only found the net three times this term.
By contrast, the likes of Manchester City have Sergio Aguero as their current leading marksman with eight goals, while Chelsea have Tammy Abraham – who has also registered eight – and Arsenal have the prolific Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who has one less with seven, per BBC Sport.
If the Parisians fail to offer the Uruguayan a new deal, or he rejects one offered to him, he will be free to leave the club for nothing at the end of the campaign.
With that in mind, PSG may wish to do business with United in January to obtain some funds for him instead of allowing him to leave for nothing just six months later.
Here’s how United fans reacted to the news linking Cavani with a move to Old Trafford:

He’s in the bracket of the Di Maria’s, Falcao’s, Sanchez etc… as long as he’d be coming for the right reasons and not just the big wage packet
