Manchester United fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are frustrated as it looks as though they are going to miss out on Edinson Cavani after the Daily Mail revealed that his club president said he would “never leave” Paris Saint-Germain.
United had singled out the Uruguayan as top target to freshen up Louis van Gaal’s striking options.
With Robin van Persie ageing and Radamel Falcao on his way back to Monaco, the Red Devils need to sign more strikers.
Punters in the Tavern thought Cavani, who scored the winning goal for the Ligue 1 champions, would be a perfect fit for the Premier League.
But PSG’s club president, Nasser Al-Khelaifi has thrown a spanner in the works and said he will ‘never leave’ the club.
Despite interest from Juventus and United, the French giants are not interested in cashing in on the 28-year-old.
Many assume that the striker is seeking a move away from the Parc des Princes as he is in the shadow of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, but this season he has played an independent role in Europe.
