Edinson Cavani ‘agrees Man Utd transfer’ with ex-PSG star set to sign two-year deal

MANCHESTER UNITED have reportedly agreed a two-year contract with striker Edinson Cavani.

The 33-year-old is a free agent having left Paris Saint-Germain in the summer.

Now, according to ESPN, the Uruguayan will pull on United's famous red shirt after agreeing terms.

Cavani is set to fly to Manchester on Sunday from Paris to complete a medical.

The deal is likely to be officially announced either later that day or Monday.

Atletico Madrid, Benfica and Inter Miami were all interested in the Uruguayan striker.

But his reported demands of £210,000-week and a two-year contract are proving difficult for those three teams to meet.

Meanwhile United have made a stuttering start to the season and have lacked that killer touch up top.

Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood don't appear to have hit the ground running so far.

United have previously tried to sign Cavani when David Moyes was in charge in 2014, but that proved fruitless.

He has also been linked with an equally-sensational move to Premier League new-boys Leeds.

He netted 200 goals in 301 appearances for PSG before deciding to end his time with the French giants this summer.

United's top target was believed to be Jadon Sancho, but the Cavani signing may mean the Premier League giants have given up on that one.
