Manchester United are set to withdraw their interest in signing Uruguay international Edinson Cavani, according to the Express.
The 27 year old moved to Paris Saint Germain for £55m just eleven months ago, though he has largely played second fiddle to Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
United, set for a summer of rebuilding after a disappointing 2013/14 campaign, had been linked with a move for the former Napoli man, though his wage demands appear to be a stumbling block.
Cavani is commanding £300k per week – an amount deemed too high by the 2013 Champions, who will now turn their attention elsewhere.
They also look set to miss out on Barcelona’s Cesc Fabregas, a target from twelve months ago, with the Spain international closing in on a switch to Chelsea.
Louis van Gaal will take his position as new Manchester United manager after guiding the Netherlands in Brazil, and he is priced at 9/2 to win the league in his first season.
