Agreement reached: Man United set to sign Edinson Cavani

Manchester United are reportedly on the verge of finalising the signing of free agent Edinson Cavani on a two-year deal.

Cavani, 33, became a free agent earlier this year after leaving Ligue 1 champions Paris-Saint Germain after spending seven years with the French giants.

The Uruguayan joined PSG in 2013 from Italian side Napoli in a move which cost the Parisians £58.05m, as per TransferMarkt.

The elite striker enjoyed a hugely successful time in Paris in a spell which saw him feature in 301 matches in all competitions and be directly involved in a monumental 243 goals.

During Cavani’s seven years in Paris his goal scoring heroics helped fire the European giants to an impressive 22 trophies including six Ligue 1 titles.

Cavani’s departure from PSG saw him become a free agent this summer and according to leading journalist Fabrizio Romano, the South American is set to become United’s second signing of the window.

Romano claims that a recent agreement between United and Cavani’s representatives has been reached with the striker set to sign with the Reds until the summer of 2022.
