Manchester United talks with Edinson Cavani

According to many reports, Manchester United have opened talks with free agent Edinson Cavani ahead of Monday’s European transfer deadline.

Edinson Cavani, the Uruguayan striker is unattached after leaving Paris Saint-Germain in the summer.

The 33-year-old Uruguayan left Paris Saint-Germain in the summer after failing to agree a short-term extension to remain in the squad for the rest of their Champions League campaign.

The striker is reportedly demanding close to around £210,000-a-week wages, and is demanding a large lump sum payment for his agent, which may put off United.

He has already missed out on moves to Atletico Madrid – who signed Luis Suarez from Barcelona – and Portuguese club Benfica.

United have been linked to a host of alternatives but are yet to make a signing apart from Donny van de Beek from Ajax.
