Manchester United have been alerted in their ongoing pursuit of signing Edinson Cavani after the Paris Saint-Germain striker admitted his love for Premier League football.

The Uruguayan international joined the Ligue 1 champions from Napoli last summer but in his debut season in France, the 27-year-old was forced to play out of position, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic playing as the main striker at Parc des Princes.

Cavani was unhappy with the situation, which has seen him being linked with a £56m move to United in recent times. The former Napoli star has reportedly informed his agent to find a club in England, as the South American has set his sights on joining the Premier League side next season.

Despite confirming his love for English football, Cavani says he is unlikely to leave his current employers in the ongoing transfer window.

"Premier League or the Bundesliga? I love both." Cavani told Le10Sport. "But I'm not the type to change leagues constantly. Germany, Spain, Italy and England are the best leagues. But Ligue 1 is also progressing.

"A change of club does not depend on the will of the player, there must be different movements between clubs. I have four years of contract with Paris Saint-Germain.

"Football is a sport where trust is everything. When a club wants you, he calls you, he wants you to integrate a project, he tries to get involved.

"In those moments, you feel confident. I'm not worried about what we can say about my work. Palermo, Naples and PSG gave me confidence."

Meanwhile, United's Ben Amos has admitted the pre-season tour is tough for goalkeepers. The Red Devils' new manager, Louis van Gaal, has taken Amos, David de Gea and Anders Lindegaard for the Old Trafford club's tour to the US.

"It feels like I had just the right amount of time off," Amos told United's official website.

"I had just the right amount of rest. These days we get our off-season training programme, which gives us a little bit of work to do after a few weeks off. It means that when we come back, we're ready to get straight back into it.

"In that respect, it's all changed from how it used to be. Now, after a week or two of rest, you ease back into it and then, by the end of your holiday, you're doing some sort of structured exercise four times a week. It eases the impact on your body once you return to training."
