PSG striker Edinson Cavani has hinted that he could depart the Ligue 1 champions this summer, with Manchester United one of many teams interested.

According to the Express, the Uruguayan is ready to leave the French capital, with Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea all sharing the Red Devils’ interest in the forward. Some reports suggest that Cavani failed to turn up to PSG’s pre-season training session, but PSG were quick to say that the striker will join up with the squad on friday ahead of their Asian tour.

But the striker, who scored against England in the World Cup, has spoken about his future, leaving the door open for a move away from France: “Football is a sport where confidence is everything,” he said.

“When a club wants you, calls you, they want to make you part of their project, they are looking for you. In those moments, you feel confident. I am relaxed on what those can say about my work. Palermo, Napoli and PSG all gave me this confidence.  A change of club does not solely depend on the wants of the player, there have to be different movements among clubs.

“I have a four year contract with Paris. The Premier League or the Bundesliga? I like them a lot but I am not used to constantly changing league. Germany, Spain, Italy and England have the best leagues. But France are progressing.”

Manchester United have been repeatedly linked with the former Napoli forward, and could be ready to test PSG’s hold of the seemingly unhappy striker.

    Get rid of Rooney! It is such a logical move and solves so many problems.
    Straight away it solves the “Rooney and van Persie can’t play together,” problem. Van Persie is a better striker anyway.
    It would allow Mata to play the number ten role at which he is much better than Rooney.
    We have better wide players than Rooney so there wouldn’t be the problem of trying to fit him in there.
    He will be able to cry, sulk, throw his toys out of the pram and it won’t be our problem.
    The salary we would save would probably pay two or three players so that makes sense.
    The only downside is that he isn’t worth very much now. Especially when you consider that Chelsea were reportedly prepared to pay a miserly 25 million for him.
    Best thing to do is give him and a large Euro cheque to PSG and take Cavani in return.
