It is understood that Edinson Cavani wants a long-term deal with the record Premier League champions and is asking for more than €10m/season in wages along with large amount in agent fees. However, Manchester United are reluctant to pay that amount to a striker who is in his 30s and are still negotiating with the Uruguayan striker.
Edinson Cavani is a free agent since his contract with PSG expired earlier this year and has been in contact with several clubs but his wage demands and agent fee have seen several clubs back down from signing the former Napoli man. Benfica and Atletico Madrid are the two rumoured clubs with whom the 33-year-old’s transfer hasn’t materialised.
Manchester United are in talks with several other players’ but are yet to reach on an agreement with anyone of them. The Red Devils are hoping to sign either of Ousmane Dembele, Alex Telles and Jadon Sancho before the deadline day but it looks highly unlikely that the record English champions will sign anyone.
