Manchester United open talks with £300k-a-week striker

CavaniManchester United fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are drawing up a list of star names they have been linked with after Metro revealed they have started talks with Paris Saint-Germain to sign Edinson Cavani.

The Uruguayan has spent previous seasons in the shadow of Zlatan Ibrahimovic but this season he has proved his worth having been impressive in Europe and he is keen to carry on this progression.

Despite his recent form, he is still forced to play out on the wing at times by his manager Laurent Blanc and this has frustrated the 28-year-old.

And United could offer the powerful striker the platform to prove his worth as Louis van Gaal looks to add more firepower upfront.

United are set to offer Cavani a deal worth around £300,000-a-week.

But in order for the Red Devils to get to the contract negotiations, they must have a bid accepted and the Ligue 1 champions want at least £55m.
