Barcelona Interested In Man United Striker Cavani





Manchester United Uruguayan striker Edinson Cavani is a target for Barcelona as they look to replace the sidelined Sergio Aguero.

Barcelona, who have been beset by financial issues, are ready to offer United a transfer fee of around £4million to £5m for the veteran striker.

Aguero has been ruled out for most of the rest of this season after a heart problem was detected. There are fears the issue could even end his career.

New Barca boss Xavi must hunt for a striker in the January window and Old Trafford star Cavani has emerged as an option.

Cavani – a free agent next summer – has been frustrated at Old Trafford since Cristiano Ronaldo ’s arrival, after having received prior assurances that the club were NOT looking to bring in a striker who would play through the middle.

That all changed when Ronaldo became available for his second coming – and Cavani, 34, has found his game time restricted.

At this stage of his career Cavani wants to play week in, week out – and Barca can offer that.
