Manchester United step up attempts to land marquee forward

Edinson Cavani (Uruguay)Punters here in the Football Transfer Tavern cannot wait to hear what Metro have to say about Paris Saint-Germain forward Edinson Cavani, and it seems one club in particular will be left pleased.

The publication has claimed that Manchester United are now in talks to sign the Uruguayan forward.

Not only do we think that his signing will massively strengthen the Red Devils’ attack come the start of the up and coming campaign, but it also places a couple of questions over the future of Wayne Rooney.

Now whilst Danny Welbeck may be happy to sit on the bench, one of our punters notes over a pint that Wayne Rooney will not.

We cannot see Cavani agreeing to a move where he will be pushed out wide again after his experience in Ligue 1 last term where he had to give up his preferred central striker’s berth to Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Robin van Persie is a Louis van Gaal favourite and we expect him to lead the Red Devils line next season – thus potentially making Rooney surplus to requirements.

As one of our regulars notes, there are even rumours of a swap deal involving Cavani coming to United and Rooney going the other way.

Manchester United fans. Do you think Cavani will come in and leave Rooney in the cold? Let us know your thoughts below.
