League 1 outfit Paris Saints German are one of the many top European clubs that are set to make loads of changes to their squad from the current season.

Star player Zlatan Ibrahimovic is set to leave the club this summer after rejecting a contract extension, leaving the club in search for an able replacement next season.

To add to the Swede, Uruguay international Edinson Cavani is also understood to be unhappy with his situation in Paris and wants to leave the club this summer.

Zlatan has already been linked with a number of English clubs including Manchester United and with Cavani also making it clear that he wants out, United are also interested in the Uruguayan.

Cavani has not been able to cement a place in the starting XI at Parc de Princes over the last couple of season and is high on the wish list at Chelsea and Manchester United.

And according to Tuttomercatoweb, Manchester United might be involved in an exchange offer for the strikers.

PSG have already been linked with Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge as a replacement for Zlatan but with Cavani also set to leave, the French outfit have now identified Manchester United’s youngster Anthony Martial as a potential star for the next season.

Nasser Al-Khelaifi, the owner of PSG is understood to be a huge fan of the young French International and believes that he can replace the likes of Zlatan at the club.

And it is understood that PSG might use Cavani as a part of a deal for the 20-year old who has been impressive in his first season in England.

He has scored 12 goals in 39 appearances for the Red Devils and is one of the hottest youngsters in Europe at the moment.

However, Martial denied any rumors linking him with PSG and revealed that he is happy at Manchester United and also added that he wants to win trophies with the Old Trafford outfit.

“They (United) are not at the top of the top, but I hope next year they will be,” Martial said.

He also revealed that he is enjoying the English game and that he is now used to it and is hoping to get better in years to come.

“I love the English game, it was really everything I wanted,” he added.

However, if United fail to move into the Champions League next season, neither Zlatan nor Cavani will make a move to Old Trafford leaving Martial with an important decision to make in the summer.
