Manchester United are looking to sign a new striker at the end of this season.
The Old Trafford outfit have struggled due to the lack of a clinical finisher all season and they are determined to address that when the transfer window reopens.
According to reports from the Italian media, Manchester United are so desperate for a world class striker that they are ready to let go of their most talented young player Anthony Martial.
Martial has been linked with a move to PSG and Manchester United are looking to set up a swap deal involving Edinson Cavani. The former Napoli striker wants a move away from Paris and has been linked with a Premier League move since last summer.
The report states that PSG could be willing to sell Edinson Cavani this summer but the French champions do not need the money. Instead, they are looking to snap up Martial, a player they admire.
Martial joined Manchester United in a £57.6m deal from Monaco last summer.
Chelsea and Juventus are also lining up a move for the Uruguayan striker this summer. But Manchester United are ready to steal a march on their rivals by offering a top class player instead of money.
Although Cavani is a world class striker, swapping him for Martial would be a very poor deal from Manchester United’s perspective.
Cavani is nearing the end of this peak and Martial is still a few years away from hitting top form. The French striker has already made a massive impact in the Premier League.
Signing Cavani would be a statement of intent from Manchester United, but if Martial is the price they have to pay, it is time to walk away.
