Manchester United reportedly reject the opportunity to sign Paris Saint-Germain forward Edinson Cavani during the January transfer window.

Manchester United have reportedly opted against a move for Paris Saint-Germain forward Edinson Cavani.

As a result of Marcus Rashford's back injury, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been left with just Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood as options in the middle of his attack.

With Cavani having less than six months remaining on his contract, a switch to Old Trafford appears to make sense for all parties.

However, according to The Times, United do not intend on making an approach for a player who turns 33 years of age next month.

Atletico Madrid have also been linked with the Uruguay international, with the frontman said to be keen on an exit from the Parc des Princes before the end of the transfer window.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has also revealed his admiration for the player at a time when the Blues may part ways with Olivier Giroud.
