Man United prepare £57m South American raid

Manchester United are ready to offer £57 million for Paris Saint-Germain duo Edinson Cavani and Thaigo Silva, The Mirror report.

The Old Trafford outfit have made progress this season and are widely expected to finish in the top four, qualifying for next term’s Champions League.

Ahead of a return to competing against Europe’s elite, Louis van Gaal’s side are expected to splash this cash this summer, with a revamp of the current squad being undertaken.

United are reportedly ready to raid the French capital to bring two of PSG’s best players to Manchester.

Cavani has been linked with a Premier League switch for some time, with United looking to freshen up their attacking options due to a dip in form of Radamel Falcao and Robin van Persie.

Meanwhile, a new commanding centre-half is also on Van Gaal’s shopping list, with Silva one of the world’s best in his position.
