Manchester United supervisor Ole Gunnar Solskjaer performed an absolute blinder when he sanctioned a short-term mortgage deal to signal Odion Ighalo.
The Nigerian has been merely elegant since finishing the swap to Previous Trafford, although I nonetheless ponder whether he’s the long-term reply.
It appears as if United are having that very same thought, too – judging by the most recent story from AS’s Wednesday print version, translated by Sport Witness.
They’re claiming that Edinson Cavani is now on the Crimson Devils’ radar, as United ‘need’ the 33-year-old striker, who’s out there on a free switch this summer season.
As you’d think about, United face competitors, from Boca Juniors, Inter Miami and Atletico Madrid. All have been labelled as ‘most important rivals’.

My preliminary thought was that if United need Cavani badly sufficient, they need to be capable of blow these rivals out of the water.
Nonetheless, I don’t actually see some extent on this deal. Cavani’s £9m-per-year deal could be a stumbling block, whereas Ighalo is keen to take a pay-cut to stay a Crimson Satan, whereas being three years Cavani’s junior.
Once you issue within the Nigerian’s unimaginable begin to life in Manchester, it solely ideas the scales additional in Ighalo’s favour. Who’s to say Cavani would play this properly? Don’t neglect that the Uruguayan in all probability wouldn’t wish to be enjoying back-up to Anthony Martial, both.
For now, I’d recommend that wanting proper below our noses appears to be the best choice right here. In any case, the final time United went out and signed a ‘marquee’ title for no switch payment, it didn’t actually work out did it…?
