Manchester United have reportedly been given a boost in their pursuit of Edinson Cavani as the Paris Saint-Germain striker is open to a mid-season switch.

Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani is open to joining Manchester United on a permanent deal this month, according to a report.

The Uruguay international has fallen out of favour at the Parc des Princes and has officially handed in a transfer request.

Atletico Madrid are considered the strong favourites to sign PSG's all-time leading goalscorer, but United have also been tipped to make a move.

The Red Devils are expected to be without Marcus Rashford for the next couple of months, forcing boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer into the transfer market.

The Manchester Evening News suggests that Cavani is a target for United, but it will take a fee of around £25m to prise him away from PSG.

Cavani would be willing to swap clubs, it is claimed, although a loan exit is not a possibility.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has hinted that his side may also be in the running to sign the former Napoli ace.
