Manchester United set to bid £50m for Edinson Cavani

Manchester United are reportedly lining up a £50 million bid for Edinson Cavani.

The Napoli striker seems destined to move to the Premier League this summer, with Manchester City and Chelsea the frontrunners for his signature.

Now United are set to jump to the front of the queue with a bid that falls just £4 million short of Cavani’s release clause.

The 26-year-old is seen as the perfect striker partner for Robin Van Persie as David Moyes intends to play with two up-front at United.

The Glazers are keen to back their new manager – and show fans that is what they are doing – so they are keen to secure his top targets this summer.
