Manchester United are making a record-breaking £50million move for Edinson Cavani.

New United boss David Moyes wants to sign the Uruguay striker from Rafa Benitez’s Napoli.

But the Scot faces competition from Real Madrid and Chelsea. And news of the bid will raise even more question marks over Wayne Rooney’s future at Old Trafford.

Cavani’s powerful style looks ideal for the Premier League. Moyes is keen to play two men up front and Cavani would make a perfect partner for Robin van Persie. The South American – strong with an eye for goal – has similar attributes to Rooney, whose relationship with United is still strained.

Napoli are ready to cash in on Cavani, 26, and are now sitting on several mega-bids. No club has matched his £54m release clause, but he could go for slightly less. United’s owners, the Glazer family, are ready to back Moyes, who is also closing in on Barcelona midfielder Thiago Alcantara.
