MAN U PREPARING £50M SWAP DEAL FOR CAVANI
Manchester United are set to follow up their interest in Paris Saint-Germain striker, Edinson Cavani, by offering record signing Angel Di Maria to the French champions in exchange.
The Uruguay international has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League this summer with both United and Arsenal known to be showing an interest. With the striker often deployed in a wide position to accommodate star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, it is said that Cavani is keen on a move away from Paris.
According to the Express, United are hoping to use PSG’s interest in winger Di Maria to land the 28-year-old in a straight swap.
Manager Laurent Blanc has reportedly submitted a £40 million offer for the man United signed just last summer, but the Premier League club rate Di Maria at £50 million having forked out £59.7million to bring him to Old Trafford from Real Madrid.
That could see Cavani used to tie up the deal, with United happy to exchange their Argentina international for the forward.
