Manchester United are believed to be in regular contact with the player’s agent, with Edinson Cavani likely to leave Old Trafford at the end of this season.

Barcelona could be forced to sell the France international this summer as he is yet to agree a new deal with the Spanish club. His current deal expires next season.

Manchester United face stiff competition for the 23-year-old, with Liverpool also rumoured to be interested.
