Sir Alex Ferguson has already signed Phil Jones and Ashley Young, while it's safe to add David de Gea to that list, though the deal is yet to be completed. However, with Dimitar Berbatov possibly moving to France, Sir Alex's chief scout has prompted him to join the race to sign Napoli striker Edison Cavani.
Caught Offside reported that the 24-year-old is a hot target, as he is quite a talent along with being in form. He is pursued by local rivals Manchester City as well as Spanish giants Real Madrid, after the Italian capped an impressive season with 33 goals in all competitions for Napoli, helping the team secure a Champions League spot. His asking price is reportedly £25 million.
Berbatov, despite being the side's top-scorer last season, is believed to be angry at being benched for the latter part of the season, as Ferguson decided on the striking partnership between Wayne Rooney and Javier Hernandez. The 30-year-old Bulgarian is now being linked with a move to French side Paris Saint Germain.
The move makes sense as if Berbatov does move, Ferguson will be left without a proven replacement for either Rooney or Hernandez, as Michael Owen's fitness issues make him an unreliable option.
However, Ferguson will have to fight to hold onto his wingers. A report in the Mirror suggests that South Korean captain Park Ji-Sung could move on to Italian giants Juventus as his contract runs out next may. The arrival of Ashley Young seems to be main cause for the suggested move though, as it could restrict first team action for Park as well as Nani.
According to the Daily Mail, Manchester United will be offered £20 million for the Portuguese winger by Bayern Munich, who will attempt to coax the 24-year-old to move to Germany as Young's arrival could see him dropped to the bench at United.
Finally, the Mirror also reports that Newcastle United will joing Sunderland in the race to sign Darron Gibson from United. The Toons will, reportedly, offer a fee of £5 million for the 23-year-old, after the Irish international accepted that he had no future at Old Trafford.
