Manchester United are on the verge of signing former Paris Saint-Germain forward Edinson Cavani on a two-year deal.
The 33-year-old Uruguay international is a free agent since leaving PSG at the end of last season, spending seven years in the French capital, and reports now have it that discussions are going on over a possible move to Old Trafford.
There is no agreement yet between United and Cavani but the player is understood to be interested in joining United on a two-year contract.
Cavani would provide Ole Gunnar Solskjaer an experienced back-up upfront, as United look to challenge for trophies this season.
Cavani joined PSG in July 2013 from Napoli for £55m after a successful three-year spell with the Serie A club. He scored 187 goals from 276 appearances in all competitions for PSG.
Solskjaer continues to let go of players that are not in his plans, with midfielder Andreas Pereira joining Lazio on a season-long loan deal on Friday.
Full-back Diogo Dalot also seems to be on his way to Italy, with the 21-year-old close to joining AC Milan on a season-long loan, according to Sky in Italy.
But Borussia Dortmund and England’s Jadon Sancho remains United’s number one target this transfer window and it remains to be seen whether a deal can be agreed with Dortmund for Sancho, with the international transfer window set to close at 11pm on Monday.
