Manchester United given chance to solve major problem after being offered PSG star Cavani

However, the Manchester Evening News claims Cavani’s representatives have offered the striker the chance to sign for United in the summer as a free agent, after seemingly making it clear he won’t be going anywhere this month.

Atleti are reported to offered €10m to sign the free-scoring Cavani this month, but it’s claimed the Ligue 1 giants have responded with a demand for €30m; a price the Spaniards are unwilling to meet.

As such, Cavani is free to negotiate a pre-contract agreement elsewhere – and the MEN reckons United’s money and manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer are currently mulling over an approach.

United, of course, are very much in the market for a new striker this month and – having missed out to Borussia Dortmund for Erling Haaland – would have to think carefully about Cavani if it meant delaying his arrival until the summer.
