Edinson Cavani’s contract demands to Man Utd if free transfer is to be completed

Manchester United would reportedly need to splash the cash if they want to sign Edinson Cavani in the final week of the transfer window.

Cavani is a free agent having left PSG earlier this summer but he is not going to come cheap when it comes to wages.

The 33-year-old shone in the French capital having scored 200 goals for the Ligue 1 giants – more than any other player.

He could join United with Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer making just one signing so far this summer as he brought Donny van de Beek to Old Trafford.

But Cavani is expected to have high demands with Spanish outlet Marca claiming previously that he wants a minimum of £120,000-a-week and a two-year contract.

Cavani has certainly had a successful career, winning six Ligue 1 titles, four French Cups and five French League Cups during his time in Paris.

United’s priority remains Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho that it’s a deal that has dragged on and on all summer.

And Roy Keane has warned that Solskjaer could be shown the door if United have a poor season, regardless of transfers.

“I think the remit will be different for Ole this year. I think last year they will have been saying, ‘If you can get in the top four…’

“He also got to the three semi-finals but it’ll be higher this year. I think they’ll certainly have to get a little bit closer to Manchester City and Liverpool.

“The points total cannot be the same as it’s been over the last three or four years. I think Ole will probably have to get his hands on a trophy.

“The honeymoon period is certainly over for Ole. The pressure starts to mount now, particularly with performances like they’ve had over the last week or so.”
