PSG ready to sell Edinson Cavani to Manchester United

Share

French magazine Le 10 sport in their latest edition has published a list of players that can leave Paris Saint Germain in the summer. One of the candidates in the list is Edinson Cavani, who you all know, is a reported target of Manchester United.

Daniel Taylor of The Guardian reported back in April that Manchester United have set their sights on Cavani, who would cost around £60m.

Le 10 Sport says Cavani has a high chance (50%) of leaving the club in the summer. The Uruguayan striker has been left disappointed with playing on the wings and although he has received assurance from the owners that he will be used as a number 9 next season, but Cavani is not cent per cent convinced the current system will change.

On the contrary, he has been given assurances that the club will let him leave if a good offer comes. PSG are keen to sell him to the highest bidder, but for now the most likely destinations are Manchester United and Real Madrid. PSG could lower their valuation as well, if United are ready to include Wayne Rooney as a part of the deal. 

First of all I don’t think United need a striker. They already have handful of them at their disposal. Secondly, Rooney has signed a mega contract recently and no way a swap deal is possible.

  1. Wrong! What United don’t need is Rooney. To be rid of a disruptive influence like him would be like a breath of fresh air at Old Trafford. Also, what’s his contract got to do with a swap deal, the two are unconnected? He would go to Paris, (good riddance), probably for another stupidly high contract and, because Rooney is average, United would have to send a large cheque as well, then Cavani could go to Old Trafford, where he would play second fiddle to van Persie and want to leave after a year.

    • Because rooney is average????? Are you a fan of man u or do you just talk shit???? Rooney was our top scorer last season….scored the best goal too…. what happens when RVP gets injured???? You really need to stop talking rubbish

      • You’re talking rubbish, in truth rvp is too injury prone and Rooney is declining fast, we need a world class striker at Utd

      • Rooney is not happy at MU and hasn’t been for ages. Best to cash in and get someone who wants to be there. heavens knows his pay package warrants more than he is delivering. Face up to it .

        Need some pacey midfielders to bring it in better than 2013/14.

  2. Cavani for Rooney + cash? Luis sign him up! Rooney needs to leave…

  3. By the way, their handful of strikers can’t score goals so maybe replacing them wouldn’t be such a bad idea.
    Are your articles always this bad?

  4. Seriously drop this story already,, how many timea is this gonna come up b4 the transfar window closes! We dont need this over rated player, if we get vidal n maybe di maiera, hummas, n the lad from gonners, id be happy, chance maybe all could end up at OT witch would be amazing ,

  5. united dont need cavani. give them rooney and get verratti.

  6. I prefer ronney 2 cavanni he shud nt leave oold traford 4 a flop lyk cavanni.

  7. how psg thought about rooneys manutd.

    PSG just have money.they can build a history like manutd and they cant buy history by dog’s arabian managers of PSG.

    manutd have money to buy cavani 60 millon pound.but i think its too easy to judge about buying cavani before seeing attitude of manutd squad.

    i just know with successful buying players in primer league for all clubs,especially attackers,manutd must think about his ((defences))more carefully.
    we must have one of best defenders in the world.

  8. this should happen if only welbeck and hernandez are off.

  9. i dnt wnt cavanni in old trafford

  10. I thiink u should play rooney and rvp up front in a 3 5 2 formation c how that works out I tink we need another 3 defenders and 3 more good midfielders

  11. Why does Man U not sign Thomas Muller instead, Cavani may be athletic but is not clinical.

  12. Spanish red?if I may asked, are u a manutd fan or u just wish to yan rubbish coz to me cavani is nt a rightful player 4 manutd.rooney is one of best player so far in world of football.who is cavani

  13. Rooney is the hardest working player on the team, without him we would have finished in the bottom half. Swap deal would be crazy!they would have to give us a large cheque!! we dont need that.

  14. United should nt do any exchange of players

  15. Rooney was always and is still the heart of UTD squad.Utd do not need any stikers at all, waste of money, down the drain.
    UTD do badly need Centre Back, a right full back at the moment.

  16. Just respect new manager, as son as the player is fit to the team and need by manager. Please get it. For those always threaten MU to have high pay and no performance. Set them asap… we want the player loyal to club like our legend Giggs.

  17. PSG demanding Rooney for exchange? They ‘re not serious

  18. Differences between wayne rooney and edinson cavani.
    1.Rooney always fights for the ball while cavani does not.
    2.Rooney has got a complete passing accurancy while cavani’s passes are not well completed
    3.Rooney is a striker but he always help in midifield and at the back but cavani always stands in front waiting for ball.

  19. I think rooney needs a World class coach like LVG to talks sense in his head and let him proof himself.I still prefer rooney than cavani becos rooney can play anywhere. and what I notice abt rooney is dat he wnt to feel above d team but he needs a world class coach like LVG to check him.

  20. I know for sure at the world cup and last few seasons he has not set the world alight maybe in his adverts yea or maybe no;the ultimate truth is he is not world class, scoring the odd wonder goal don’t cut it look at John Bostock. fan since 1980s and we have had a lot better strikers than Rooney in the past, I think sometimes you have to let somethings in life go and man u need to do that with Rooney. We have mata and Jan I think another raw goalscoring striker is needed heartless ruthless which none of the current crop are the strikers we have now just don’t posses it. Chicha is great in the box but his approach play is poor just not strong enough. Need an athletic big boy but skillful and deadly in front of goal. Canvani welcome Rooney good luck for the future.

  21. Manchester united need to keep rooney

  22. What a funny article?our own great ROO to that Cavani,ha ha,not alike at all,ROO is just the only backbone of United,ROONEY is going no where.we only need two defensive midfielders,then,two centre back plus a brilliant winger like Rues or De Maria,with all these we are done.

  23. We should get cavani for cash and Rooney and try to get some like maquinos for the double swoop verratti would be a good buy also but Rooney is too big headed now and for 300k a week he should be scoring 40 goals every season without fault.

    • Honestly, I think rooney should stay. Cavani is welcome to ManU. The problem is rooney is over paid, he does not deserve 300k n he’s over rated, maybe cause he’s english. When other top players come in, I believe he’ll adjust so it does not look as if he’s indispensable. He should(Rooney) really be scoring at least 25-30 goals a season considering what he earns n I want to believe a foreign will not earn as much as rooney even if he scores 30+ goals a season. English players are just too over rated.
