Edinson Cavani has done little to arrest the rumours that have been linking him with a move away from PSG in the summer after admitting that he cannot deny interest from a club like Manchester United should they make an offer in the summer. Cavani has been stating throughout the season that he has been unhappy with the club, but this has been his first season at the French capital after his £ 60 million move from Napoli last summer. Despite this mega money move, Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been the preferred choice upfront for manager Laurent Blanc.
Cavani has been used out on the wings and he stated before the Champions League quarter-final against Chelsea that he does not like to play there. Due to Ibrahimovic’s injury in the second leg, Cavani was used as the main striker, but he was in disappointing form as he missed a number of good opportunities to put his team into the semifinals. Even though he scored more than 20 goals in the season, it has been seen as a disappointment by him. Manchester United, who are set to appoint Louis van Gaal the next few days as their manager, have been reportedly tracking Cavani for the last few months.
Cavani has failed to dismiss rumours that he may leave PSG.
"I am certainly going to speak to the president, with the club. If I have important things to say, I'll do it internally. I think we'll do it that things work out for the best. I don't know what is true and what is not in what is being said,” said the former Napoli striker. PSG’s Al Khelaifi, though, clarified the situation by saying that Cavani is not for sale at any price. United are reportedly set to offer around £ 200 million as transfer budget for van Gaal.
