Manchester United have made a £56million bid for Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani, according to reports in Italy.

Daily newspaper Tuttosport report that Cavani, who spent six years in Italy with Palermo and Napoli, is top of new United manager Louis van Gaal's wishlist.

The Uruguay striker, 27, only joined PSG last summer for around £55m, but is said to be unhappy in Paris at having to play second fiddle to Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
