Man United  are willing to offer Angel Di Maria to Paris St Germain in a straight swap for Uruguay hitman Edinson Cavani, according to the Daily Star.

Di Maria is attracting interest from Europe’s elite after a poor debut season in the Premier League, but the United board do not want to sell the Argentine winger to either Barcelona or Bayern amid fears he will prove an instant hit for their rivals.

Although he could be equally successful at PSG that blow will be softened if Louis van Gaal’s men can land £50m-rated Cavani in return.

Dutch coach van Gaal drew up a lengthy list of top striker targets at the start of the summer but so far none has materialised, with Cavani now the best viable option available.
