Manchester United fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are looking up with hope as Metro claim they may be a step closer to landing Edinson Cavani.
The Paris Saint-Germain forward has missed the pre-season tour of Asia through a ‘virus’ and as one of our regulars notes over by the pool table, we think that is a little bit too convenient given rumours of a switch to Old Trafford have been gathering pace.
Much like we expect Aston Villa’s Philippe Senderos to come down with a virus before the trip to Stamford Bridge to face Didier Drogba, Cavani may well have one eye on his £50 million potential move when declaring himself too ill to travel.
We cannot wait to see how this saga pans out, and as our regulars note over a game of darts with our landlord, the future of Javier Hernandez and Wayne Rooney may well depend on the arrival of Cavani.
As ever, there will be some twists and turns in this intriguing transfer window yet!
Manchester United fans. Do you think Cavani is faking it or will he join up with PSG and make it business as normal once he has recovered? Let us know your thoughts below.
