Edison Cavani has been the latest transfer target for Manchester United ahead of summer transfer window. With Radamel Falcao being way below par and is expected to return to AS Monaco this summer, Manchester United are in dire need of a quality striker.
The performances of Manchester United are good but are less inspiring in the attacking sense. The strikers of Manchester United have been below par. The leading goal scorer for the Red Devis is Robin van Persie with 10 goals, but he is looking out-of-sorts for a whille now and the age is also accumulating on the star striker.
Falcao is nothing but a flop this season at Old Trafford netting just 6 goals in 22 appearances and was not able to make any impact on the games. Wayne Rooney is given the role of play maker by van Gaal and so he isn’t scoring much these days but yet managed to score 8 premier league goals.
With Javier Hernandez warming the bench at Real Madrid, Manchester United are expected to buy a world-class striker this summer. Edison Cavani has been linked to move away from Ligue 1 champions for a few seasons now and Manchester United want to cash on it. The star striker was unhappy to play second fiddle to the club’s main striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic at PSG.
He is also reported to have issues with PSG cheifs recently. He has managed to score 8 Ligue1 goals and 6 goals in Champions League which put him only behind Messi and Luiz Adriano on top scorers chart.
Red Devil’s manager Louis van Gaal is expected to replace Cavani after off-loading Radamel Falcao this summer.United are monitoring the situation to spend £50 million on th striker after a summer where they spent £150 million. The striker would be given a whopping £220,000-a-week salary to complete the switch.
This will be a big blow to the Gunners, Chelsea and Liverpool as they are monitoring the progress of the striker for a few months now.
