Manchester United transfer news - Cavani and Di Maria swap deal on cards with PSG

  • Red Devils to sacrifice record signing as striker search hots up
Manchester United are chasing Edinson Cavani and may give Angel Di Maria to PSG in exchange for the striker

Manchester United are being linked with a massive summer swap deal involving record signing Angel Di Maria and PSG striker Edinson Cavani.

Louis van Gaal is on the lookout for a new front man to lead the line next season as the Red Devils struggle to impress going forward.

Robin van Persie took his goal tally for the current campaign into double figures when netting from the penalty spot in a 3-1 win over Burnley at Old Trafford but the 31-year-old has begun to look his age in general play.

Hopes of loan signing Radamel Falcao recapturing the sparkle which made him one of the world's most feared finishers are also starting to fade as the Colombia hitman continues to appear a yard off the pace.

Many United fans believe pushing Wayne Rooney back up front is the solution but Van Gaal seems reluctant to release the England captain from his midfield shackles, while hot prospect James Wilson still needs more time to develop.

At 27, Uruguay international Cavani is seen as the perfect answer to the Red Devils' need to freshen things up in this department.

A record of 78 goals in 104 Serie A games for Napoli persuaded PSG to pay £55million for the 6ft 1in forward in July 2013 and he hasn't disappointed, with 22 strikes in all competitions last season and 14 more this term.

However, the vibes are that Cavani would prefer a more challenging environment, with the Paris outfit on their way to another Ligue 1 success in the somewhat unexciting top tier of French football.

Meanwhile, Di Maria made a stunning start to his Old Trafford career following a £59.7million switch from Real Madrid but recent performances have lacked consistency, with no Premier League goals scored since early October.

Although United are more than happy to persevere with the Argentina star, the added distraction of a recent raid on his house by thieves may tempt Di Maria to make a hasty exit from England.
