The Daily Mirror understands that Manchester United may be ready to cash in on star forward Robin van Persie at the end of the season.
The 31-year-old has missed a large chunk of the current season through injury and he is no longer considered an indispensable member of the squad.
As a result, manager Louis van Gaal seems ready to offload his compatriot in the summer transfer window and recruit a new centre forward.
According to the Daily Mirror, the Dutch coach has made PSG’s Edinson Cavani his number one target.
The Uruguayan is clearly unhappy at being played out of position at Parc des Princes and his relationship with coach Laurent Blanc is at an all-time low.
Manchester United aim to take advantage of the situation and lure the highly rated forward to Old Trafford while at the same time selling Robin van Persie, who has just over a year left on his deal.
