Former PSG striker Edinson Cavani agrees two-year deal with Man Utd
Cavani is set to become the second new face through the door at Old Trafford this summer and
will provide competition for the likes of Anthony Martial
Manchester United have agreed to pay veteran Uruguayan striker Edinson Cavani £20million to move to Old Trafford.
United opened talks with the 33-year-old former Paris St Germain and Napoli forward during the week
after deciding that Borussia Dortmund’s £107million asking price for Jadon Sancho is too rich.
High-level sources at United confirmed on Saturday that negotiations went well and
Cavani is now expected to sign a two-year contract worth £200,000-a-week.
Cavani became a free agent after leaving PSG at the end of the season.
He won six French titles in seven years in Paris and will bring a wealth of experience to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s young squad.
United’s swoop for Cavani comes with the club growing increasingly desperate to add quality to the team.
United’s decision to turn their attentions to Canavi suggests they are buying themselves another
12 months before returning to Dortmund for Sancho.
Cavani moved to Europe in 2007 when he joined Palermo.
He then enjoyed a hugely successful spell with Napoli before PSG paid £55million for his services in 2013.
He also helped his country win the Copa America during an international career that has brought 116 caps.
Reports have it that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is preparing a bid for the Sevilla striker after he has only managed to sign Donny van de Beek to the Premier League club during this transfer window.
With the transfer window closing on October 5,
Manchester United are looking at another possibility of getting a back-up for Antony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood.
26-year-old Ocampos is an Argentine who has been with Spanish outfit Sevilla since 2019 helping the club to Europa League glory last season.
