Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani is the ‘prime target’ to replace Robin van Persie at Manchester United, according to the Guardian’s Jamie Jackson.
With the exit of Dutch striker LVG has been keeping a keen eye on availble strikers who might replace “the flying Dutchman”.
RVP managed only 10 goals in 29 appearances last season at the club, a displeasing result to Louis Van Gaal, the Red Devils manager is need of a striker that can deliver satisfactorily since they will be contesting on all fronts this season.
The Uruguayan has been linked with the Red Devils this summer and LVG has the backing of the board to make this a reality.
Aston Villa forward Christian Benteke is also on Louis van Gaal’s list but, according to Jackson, Liverpool are still in the boxseat to land the big Belgian.
And it is PSG star Cavani who is interesting the Dutchman at the moment.
“Edinson Cavani is Manchester United’s prime target to replace Robin van Persie,” Jackson comments.
“Liverpool are more keen on Christian Benteke than United. Benteke is on United’s list, and there is interest there, but he’s not top of the list at the moment.”
The interest in both players to join the Red Devils trails to desire of each player to move, with Benteke seeking a move away from Aston Villa, the deal might be easier to conclude than convincing the Uruguayan to leave the Parisiens.
