Manchester United ready to splash the cash on Cavani, Fabregas and Shaw
David Moyes might have been sacked but Red Devils set to spend £60m on Edinson Cavani
April 24th, 2014
Manchester United are without a permanent manager following the departure of David Moyes, although it hasn’t stopped them from making grandiose plans when it comes to spectacular summer signings.
The Red Devils squad is set to be reshaped on a large scale, with the likes of Shinji Kagawa, Rio Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidic, Patrice Evra and Ashley Young set to leave the club over the next few weeks.
The Guardian today report that Edinson Cavani is number one on the United hit list and the Uruguayan is thought to be available at £60 million, with Paris Saint-Germain willing to allow the 27-year-old to depart the Parc des Princes.
Meanwhile, plans are also afoot to capture Cesc Fabregas, with the club missing out on the Spaniard’s signature last summer and determined to make amends by signing the former Arsenal captain as they look to reshape their midfield.
With Evra on his way out, Luke Shaw has been identified as the ideal replacement for the Frenchmen, with David Moyes having watched the Southampton left-back at Villa Park on Saturday before getting the axe at Old Trafford.
United could be without a permanent manager for nearly three months if they eventually appoint Louis van Gaal, with the Dutchman currently preparing for the 2014 World Cup where he will hope to lead the Netherlands to success.
It appears that the Red Devils are prepared to offer Shaw roughly £100,000 per week to sign for the north-west club who can’t offer Champions League football to any potential players until the 2015/16 season at the earliest.
Cavani signed from Napoli for £52.7m last summer, making him the sixth most expensive player in the world although PSG are willing to sell him for a similar amount after the player made a modest impact against Chelsea in the Champions League.
