Ed Woodward given Edinson Cavani advice as Man Utd open talks for ex-PSG star

Manchester United have been told to negotiate with Edinson Cavani to ensure he arrives before the transfer deadline.

The Uruguayan is a free agent after leaving PSG over the summer.

And Cavani's representatives have offered his services to the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid.

But his hefty wage requirements have so far stopped a deal from materialising with any European outfit.

United have opened talks with Cavani as they look for an attacker in the closing days of the window, according to talkSPORT.

And ESPN transfer expert Gabriele Marcotti has sent a stern message to Ed Woodward and his team when it comes to negotiating with Cavani, urging them to not be put off by his wages at PSG.

"What bugs me about Cavani is, and unfortunately we in the media are guilty of this because we talk to someone and we pair up whatever they say, and they're like 'oh Cavani's wages are too high'," he said.

"Cavani's wages, let me remind everybody, Cavani's wages are zero right now. Cavani makes nothing, okay.

"So you can go and negotiate with him. Was he making a ton of money before? Yes, absolutely.

"It doesn't mean you have to go and give him that same money now. So if you think he's the right guy and you can give him a year plus an option if he plays certain minutes or whatever.

"You can do things to protect yourself for this one season while you go and pursue your longer-term targets.

"I think that is the really difficult thing for me to understand.
