Manchester United are said to have been ‘serious candidates’ to sign Edinson Cavani this summer.
Atletico Madrid continues to be linked to Uruguay International, the PSG’s all-time leading goal scorer with 200, including seven in the 2019-20 season.
Nevertheless, according to L’Equipe, United is still squarely in the 33-year-old race as head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is trying to improve his chances in the final third of the table. The study claims that the Red Devils have the ‘financial means’ to be successful on the market this summer given the coronavirus epidemic, which has caused a host of problems.
Cavani has only scored four Ligue 1 goals this season, but has scored 138 times in France’s top flight since arriving from Napoli in Paris in the summer of 2013. The centre-forward’s contract with Paris Saint-Germain will expire at the end of June and is generally expected to pursue fresh pastures in the run-up to the 2020-21 campaign.
