Manchester United are 'serious candidates' to sign Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani, according to a report.

Manchester United are reportedly 'serious candidates' to sign Edinson Cavani this summer.

The centre-forward's contract with Paris Saint-Germain will expire at the end of June, and he is widely expected to seek pastures new ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.

Atletico Madrid continue to be linked with the Uruguay international, who is PSG's all-time leading goalscorer with 200, including seven during the 2019-20 season.

However, according to L'Equipe, United are also firmly in the race for the 33-year-old as head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to boost his options in the final third of the field.

The report claims that the Red Devils have the 'financial means' to be active in this summer's market despite the coronavirus outbreak causing a whole host of problems.

Cavani has only managed four Ligue 1 goals this season, but he has scored 138 times in France's top flight since arriving in Paris from Napoli during the summer of 2013.
