Manchester United set to sign Edinson Cavani on short-term contract

Edinson Cavani is expected to travel to England on Sunday to complete a move to Manchester United.

The 33-year-old striker’s contract with Paris Saint-Germain ran out in June and the Uruguay international is a free agent, so no fee would be needed. It is understood that if a move to United goes through as widely expected, Cavani is likely to join on a one-year contract, with the option to extend for a further 12 months.

Personal terms were agreed with the player on Saturday. Cavani’s agents are asking for €10m as part of the deal, a figure that led to potential moves to Benfica and Atlético Madrid collapsing earlier in the summer, but United have indicatated they are willing to do business.

Cavani was offered to United and other clubs during last week, and became a serious target for Ed Woodward, United’s executive vice-chairman, given Borussia Dortmund’s refusal to lower their €120 valuation of Jadon Sancho.
