Since the transfer of Cristiano Ronaldo to Manchester United in the summer of 2021, Cavani has struggled in the starting XI. Ralph Rangnick, like his predecessor Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, decided to stay with Ronaldo in advance, leaving Cavani stranded.
The Uruguayan, who is on the wrong side of 30, desperately wants more time to play and is considering leaving Old Trafford. The former PSG man has only six more months left on his contract, which means United will have to sell him in January or risk losing him on a free transfer.
The La Liga giant Barcelona is reportedly interested in his services and this move could make room for the arrival of world-class footballers at United. According to per Calciomercato, if Manchester United and Barcelona can agree on Cavani, Mauro Icardi from PSG could land at Old Trafford.
The Serie A team Juventus is also in the equation and has been chasing Icardi for some time. However, if PSG and Manchester United form an alliance, which seems likely at the moment, Bianconeri can be left high and dry. Icardi’s transfer could create future high-profile contracts between the two clubs and strengthen their relationship.
Mauro Icardi has played in 15 Ligue 1 games this season and scored four goals.
Paul Pogba from Manchester United could join PSG in the summer
The future of Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is also in the air. The winner of the 2018 World Cup has yet to renew his contract and will become a free agent in six months.
Previous reports have hinted at Real Madrid’s interest, but Los Blancos they seem to have withdrawn from the race.
With Real Madrid ruled out as a possible destination, the Ligue 1 giants PSG have emerged as a solid option for Pogba. The French side is eager to add a little quality to the middle of the park and Pogba fits in perfectly.
