The Manchester United fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are looking around curiously at the latest claim from Metro.
The publication seem to be under the impression that the club have sounded out one of the best forwards in the world regarding a summer transfer.
It seems that formerly high flying Manchester United are looking to net Paris Saint-Germain’s Edinson Cavani.
As one of our punters notes, the fact that United now look like missing out on Champions League football and still have David Moyes at the helm, we thought that it could well be a while before the club looked at landing such world class players.
That does not seem to be the case, with the coaching staff keeping a close eye on the former Napoli forward, not to mention the fact that the board are trying to sound the Uruguayan forward out for a move.
Our landlord stops pouring a pint to note that Cavani is not the only player United have been tracking, and given their form of late it is not surprising.
The club are in dire need of at least five top players and a forward is the last of their worries!
Will Cavani opt for a club who have better immediate prospects? Let us know your thoughts below.
