Man United eyeing £35m move for PSG star should Mourinho takeover

Manchester United will make a £35m move for Paris Saint-Germain forward Edinson Cavani, according to ITA Sport Press.

The Uruguayan forward was reportedly a major target for Arsenal, though has remained in Paris since a £50m move from Napoli in 2013.

However, he has at times cut a frustrating figure in the French capital in the shadow of superstar forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

With Laurent Blanc penning a new deal with the Ligue 1 champions, the 29-year old is reportedly set for a summer exit.

Jose Mourinho, who is widely tipped to takeover at Old Trafford in the summer, is believed to be keen on landing him should he be installed as manager.

The Portuguese coach could reportedly commission a £35m move to lure him to the Theatre of Dreams.

He has scored 11 goals in 21 games for the French giants, though has largely played in a wider role in the forward line to accommodate the talismanic Swede.
