Manchester United happy to swap midfielder for strike ace

Last updated : 15 July 2015 By DSG

United have valued Angel Di Maria at £50million and the player has been linked with a move to PSG which has prompted the suggestion that Edinson Cavani could become part of a straight swap continues the Express report

Louis van Gaal has been linked with interest in the PSG striker and it is thought that the deal could suit all parties

Whilst it would be inaccurate to label Di Maria as a flop given the number of assists the player has provided, it could still be called a disappointing start to his stay at Old Trafford

The player himself has repeatedly stated he wants to stay and build on his performances but that luxury may not be available

Questions remain over how Di Maria he fits into the way that Van Gaal wants United to play and if he has the players to better accommodate the Argentine

PSG are understood to have lodged a bid for Di Maria in the region of £40million but United have responded with an enquiry over their 18-league-goal forward and that they value Di Maria at £50million

Cavani is a year older than Di Maria and will be 29 in February so United should be wary about bringing in a player that is only one more season away from 30

The player has improved on his goal tally from his first season by six, having hit the back of the net 31 times in all competitions which is only 7 shy of his last season at Napoli when the player was arguably at his peak.
