According to The Metro, Edinson Cavani seems to favor moving to Old Trafford rather than the likes of City or Chelsea. Cavani just moved last summer from Napoli to PSG and has had a good season despite playing second fiddle to Zlatan.

Cavani is a world class striker, so all the big clubs are eyeing a move for him, especially with PSG being watched by Financial Fair Play. Cavani says that United have shown the most interest in him thus far.

Cavani seems he would be a perfect fit for the EPL and is willing to talk to any suitors, according to The Metro. Cavani says that the fact United have shown so much interest in him, is an important factor.

The report is coming from The Metro which is not a top source and thus only gets a 4 on the scale.

If Cavani came to United, he would be a huge boost to the club. Cavani can do it all and is arguably a top 5 striker in all of world football.

Cavani has shown that he can play up top alongside Zlatan, as well as play in a wider role. Cavani this season has worked really hard and one thing that separates him from other strikers is his willingness to track back and defend.

United need these type of world class players and if he came, he would bring goals and effort, two things United need. If this transfer happened, I would give it a 10 out of 10 as far as helping the squad improve.

Right now, it is hard to say for certain if this move would happen. A lot of what happens this summer depends on the man in charge at United. If United hire Van Gaal, then it is certain that United would not sell Van Persie, which would question where Cavani fits in.

I can see Cavani coming to United but I expect Rooney to stay at the club. I cannot see United having Cavani, Rooney, and Van Persie all at the club. I give this transfer only a 20 percent chance as of now, because Van Gaal seems set to get the job and he will favor Van Persie over anyone, including Cavani.



  1. At this point in their careers both Rooney and van Persie can only play half the games as they are always carrying niggling injuries. A true world-class manager will be able to figure out how to play Cavani, Rooney, van Persie, Mata and Kagawa.
