Paris Saint-German out of favor £210k-a-week striker, Edison Cavani has reached a 2-year agreement with Manchester United and will fly-in to finalize the deal on Sunday.
According to a seasoned Sports journalist, Fabrizio Romano Manchester United held talks with the strikers representative and a deal has been agreed between the two parties.
The 33-year-old has held talks with Benfica and Athletico Madrid over a potential move, but all attempts failed to materialize due to his wage demand of around €10 million (£9m/$12m) per season and large agent fees.
According to Daily Mail, Manchester United has now won the battle for his signature on a free transfer deal and the striker could fly-in to the UK tonight to finalize the move.
Solskjaer believes that the forward can still produce at the highest level, as he’s still one of the most deadly hitmen in the game.
During his seven years spell at PSG, Cavani scored 200 goals in 301 appearances to help them win 6 Ligue 1 titles, 4 French Cups, and 5 League cups.
Cavani will support Anthony Martial upfront and would be a huge upgrade on Odion Ighalo whose form has dropped dramatically in recent months.
Manchester United boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is desperately trying to bring in top-quality additions to strengthen his squad before the window shuts on Monday night having only managed to bring-in Donny van de Beek from Ajax this summer.
United are also eyeing a move for either Jadon Sancho and Ousmane Dembele, with the Borussia Dortmund winger emerging as the club’s top winger target this summer while Porto left-back Alex Telles is also being linked.
