Recent reports have emerged that Manchester United are looking to make a mammoth £56 million bid for Edinson Cavani. The Uruguayan has only been at PSG for a year, but news of his unhappiness playing second fiddle to Zlatan Ibrahimovic came to light midway through last season, and Manchester United now look set to offer him a way out.

It can certainly be argued that United don’t need Cavani at this time, but on some levels it makes sense due to Robin van Persie’s age and the general lack of quality behind him and Wayne Rooney. Cavani would undoubtedly play a big part in returning the club to the top of the Premier League table.

Cavani could be one of a number of major signings for the club, with Luke Shaw also said to be close to a move. It wouldn’t be enough, though, as United’s squad is in need of a major overhaul.

Should Cavani end his time in Paris with a move to Old Trafford, these are the six players who could follow him.
