Van Gaal may offer Di Maria in a swap deal for Cavanni
After a lackluster first season at Man Utd, top clubs all around Europe are looking to lure Angel Di Maria out of Old Trafford.
The Argentine midfielder, who cost a British record fee of £59.7million have been linked to Barcelona during this summer transfer window.
PSG and Bayern Munich are also long term admirers of the 27year old ex-Real Madrid star.
But the United board do not want to sell Di Maria, 27, to either Barcelona or Bayern amid fears he will prove an instant hit for their rivals.
Van Gaal listed top strikers in Europe as targets at the beginning of this transfer window but none have seems to be realistic.
Benteke is too expensive at £32.5m, Tottenham's Harry Kane is not for sale while Mario Mandzukic joined Juventus from Atletico Madrid.
PSG's Cavanni is the last option for Van Gaal and this might leave him a swap-deal for the Uruguayan striker for Di Maria.
I don't think Manchester United fans would want to see Di Maria leave. What is the guarantee that Cavanni will be an instant hit at Old Trafford?
