MANCHESTER UNITED EYE CAVANI

It’s not been a good transfer window for Manchester United to say the least, and now they’re beginning to show signs of their desperation to get at least one more signing through the door at Old Trafford.

Edinson Cavani of Paris Saint-Germain is challenged by Dan-Axel Zagadou of Borussia Dortmund during the UEFA Champions League round of 16 second leg match between Paris Saint-Germain and Borussia Dortmund at Parc des Princes on March 11, 2020 in Paris, France. 

According to the Daily Express, The Red Devils are considering making a move for 33-year-old Edinson Cavani, who remains without a club since being released by Paris Saint-Germain at the end of the season. Having been linked with Jadon Sancho and Ousmane Dembele over the last few weeks, a shock move for Cavani would be a drastic change of direction.

MANCHESTER CITY TARGET NEW LEFT-BACK

Given that he’s spent around £390 million on defenders since arriving at the Etihad, you’d think that Pep Guardiola would now be satisfied with his options in that department. However, according to the Daily Mail, that’s not the case.

Guardiola clearly isn’t impressed with the performances of Benjamin Mendy so far this season, and is keen for The Citizens to sign a new left-back before the transfer window slams shut. Ajax’s Nicolas Tagliafico is said to be at the top of his wishlist, but Ajax won’t allow him to leave for any less than £28 million.

CHELSEA LOOKING TO OFFLOAD

As we mentioned in yesterday’s daily round-up, Chelsea left-back Marcos Alonso is attracting interest from Inter Milan. He’s not the only player who may be on his way out of Stamford Bridge over the next few days.

Antonio Rudiger and Ruben Loftus-Cheek have also both struggled for first-team action under the management of Frank Lampard so far this season, and could be on the way out.
