Man United transfers: Red Devils handed Edinson Cavani boost
Edinson Cavani's agent suggests that clubs in England and Spain are keeping tabs on the Uruguay forward
Manchester United have been handed a boost in their reported pursuit of Edinson Cavani after the player’s agent suggested that he could quit Paris Saint-Germain to join a team in England or Spain.
The Uruguay international has been linked with a move to Old Trafford in recent months as Louis van Gaal considers bolstering his attacking options at Old Trafford ahead of next season.
United are thought to be keeping tabs on the 28-year-old’s situation, while Spanish side Atletico Madrid are also understood to be interested in the forward.
Now, Cavani’s agent Claudio Anellucci has suggested that the forward is a player in demand as the summer transfer window approaches.
“For the moment, it seems too early to make any such considerations. Edi is under contract with PSG and discussions of this kind are linked to different situations,” Annellucci is quoted as saying by ESPN.
“Once the situation has been clarified, different scenarios could open up given that players such as him, at the height of their maturity, are coveted by the best teams in Europe.
“The markets of interest are Spain and England, and that currently excludes an Italian club being able to take part in going for Cavani.”
Cavani, who has 71 Uruguay caps to his name, has scored eight goals in 28 Ligue 1 appearances for PSG so far this season.
He joined the French side from Serie A side Napoli back in 2013 after scoring 78 league goals for the Italian club.
