Edinson Cavani has reportedly given Manchester United the go ahead to make a move for the Uruguayan in the summer, according to the Daily Mirror.

The striker has fallen out of favour with manager Laurent Blanc who has shown over the course of the season that he prefers Zlatan Ibrahimovic to play through the middle over the South American.

Cavani flattered to deceive in Paris Saint-Germain's two legged tie against Chelsea in the quarter finals of the Champions League where he played on the wings in their 3-1 win in the home leg but through the middle in the second leg at Stamford Bridge.

The former Napoli striker missed a couple of gilt edged chances to put the tie to bed and failed to impose his presence in the leg.

The frustration at having to play second fiddle is playing on Cavani's minds and the striker has reportedly told his friends that he is willing to take the plunge and ply his trade in the Premier League with Manchester United.

The Red Devils are willing to pay up to £60m for his signature as they look to rejuvenate their team for a title challenge next season.

"Edinson believes he will be a perfect fit in England. He knows that United, Manchester City and Chelsea are all interested and would be happy to talk to any of them. But he also knows United seem the most keen and that is a factor," a Mirror source said.

PSG do not want to lose the striker but are scrutinising his situation after a series of poor performances and may let him leave if a sizeable bid comes their way.

UEFA have charged them with indiscretions with respect to the Financial Fair Play Rules and the French club have to show that they are trying to comply with the same by selling their deadwood to make money for further investment.
