Edinson Cavani of Paris Saint-Germain has reportedly rejected a lucrative offer to join Manchester United.
United’s need for a new forward has become desperate with Marcus Rashford out for a month or two. There is no more Romelu Lukaku to fall back on, as well as Alexis Sanchez. The only option at supervisor Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s disposal at the moment is 18-year-old Mason Greenwood.
The 20-time British champions, therefore, opted to go for Cavani, according to the Mirror who quote reports in France and provided the Uruguayan a contract worth #10 million per year. However, he apparently is not interested in following in the footsteps of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who swapped Parc des Princes for Old Trafford back in 2016, as he targets a move to Atletico Madrid.
Atletico remains the favorites for Cavani’s signature. Apart from United, Chelsea is also reportedly considering the possibility of bringing him to the Premier League, with Tammy Abraham injured and Olivier Giroud place to join Inter Milan this month.
